Holiday whimsy at Charles Paddock Zoo

newsroom@thetribunenews.comDecember 22, 2012 

Animals at Atascadero’s Charles Paddock Zoo were treated to some holiday fun Saturday.

Special holiday gifts — such as a new ball for the fossa, a cat-like creature from Madagascar — were delivered to many of the animals throughout the day.

Visitors got a chance to participate in the festivities, with free hot chocolate and a craft table to make take-home ornaments.
