A feast of bark and needles


Barbie, a Barbary Sheep of the Spring River Park and Zoo, snacks at a pine while Bugsy eyes some visitors Saturday afternoon as the 25 Days of Zoo Christmas continues. Sponsored by the Friends of Spring River Zoo nonprofit and individuals, the holiday gifts are given to a few animals each day and are intended to enhance their quality of life by encouraging natural behaviors. The zoo is open today and Monday. It will be closed for Christmas but will reopen Wednesday, the final day of the holiday activity. (Lisa Dunlap Photo)
