Local kids came face to face with a Great Horned Owl, a Three-Banded Armadillo and a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach at St. Vincent Healthcare Sept. 16. The animals – and their handlers – were on hand to bring the healing power of animals into the hospital.
The project is called San Diego Zoo Kids. It’s a closed-circuit television channel broadcast throughout the hospital.
San Diego Zoo Kids is a collaboration of the San Diego Zoo, ZooMontana, St. Vincent’s Children’s Healthcare and Ronald McDonald Charities of Eastern Montana.
