It’s Christmas time at the zoo. Ben and his family stuff a cardboard zebra with meat as a treat for the lions and Basil the Coati has an infected penis.
The renovation of the zoo is underway, but Ben is also faced with some urgent welfare issues.
Most serious is the fighting between the two female Siberian tigers. If a new home can’t be found for both of them, one will have to be destroyed.
Spring brings tragic news. Ben’s wife Katharine is diagnosed with a brain tumour which becomes terminal. All work, except essential animal care, is put on hold.
