A keeper taking a load of uneaten, urine-soaked hay out of an exhibit set the wheelbarrow down and turned to close the gate. A teenage boy reached over to grab a handful of hay to toss in to the animals. The keeper could see what the boy was doing out of the comer of his eye, and deliberately took his time in closing the gate.
When he turned back to the wheelbarrow, the boy was, of course, acting innocent. As he went by with the wheelbarrow, the keeper turned to the boy and remarked politely, “Oh, by the way, you might want to wash your hands when you’re done. They’ve been peeing on this stuff all night.”
As the keeper’s words sank in, a look of disgust spread across the boy’s face and he began wiping his hands on his pants.
