Terminally ill zookeeper pays last visit to his animals

This is very touching.

A DUTCH ZOOKEEPER has paid a final visit to the animals he used to care for, thanks to the help of a charity.

Mario, a 54-year-old giraffe keeper, visited the enclosure at Rotterdam Zoo with the help of the Ambulance Wish Foundation, which helps very ill people with mobility problems to fulfill a dream.

Mario has terminal cancer and wanted to say farewell to the animals and colleagues he has worked with all his life, according to Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad.
