I wish I had some better reason to tell you about Little Ponderosa Zoo and Rescue. But no, I was there, petting animals, taking pictures, looking at zebus and zonkeys and getting spit on by a camel because of a memorial service for animals lost in a fire. I was there at my day job reporting for The Oak Ridger. The zoo’s founder, James Cox told me and other reporters the zoo would not open until spring. But if you want a small zoo with animals you can pet and feed, the place is superb and one of Clinton, Tennessee’s more unusual attractions. Don’t expect it to be big like the Knoxville Zoo, but it is fun.
