An afternoon at the zoo

I visited the Miam Metro Zoo this weekend for the first time in more than 20 years and was able to put my Canon 300mm F/4L IS lens to good use.

But I wish I had not forgotten my 1.4x lens extender because is some cases, 300mm was still not long enough to get the close-ups that I wanted.

However, it was the perfect length for many of these photos, which can be enlarged by clicking on them.

For some reason, this lowland gorilla reminded me of the cops who arrested me. Thankfully, there was a moat that separated us.

I captured these Bengal tigers during feeding time as a zoo worker tossed them a piece of raw meat. (click on link to see more photos).

It turns out, the lowland gorillas are actually very gentle creatures who pick their nose when they think nobody is watching.

These monkeys are called Siamang and they spend their days on a small island swinging from trees.

The white handed gibbons are kept on another island next to the Siamang island and they also spend their days swinging from trees. Obviously, desegregation hasn’t reached the zoo.

The Indian elephants are slightly smaller than the African elephants.

This Asian bear looked as if he was sleeping off an MSG-laden meal.

The chimpanzees were not too social because most of them were sleeping, but I was able to capture this hand through a dirty glass.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
