Kim Klosterman Hanging the Kea toy in the indoor enclosure
Last week I sent a big toy to my friends the Keas at the Cincinnati Zoo. The staff had a pretty good time watching them beat the living hell out of the thing. The Zoo has some Keas in an outdoor enclosure for up close and personal interaction with the public. I suspect the Zoo Guests who decide to visit these little marauders have no idea how wild they can get with their curiosity and destructive ways. The Staff originally put the toy outside:

But the Keas that are outside have a lot going on out there with people walking by and so much to see; like shoes and boots. They displayed little interest in the toy, so they moved in indoors for Stella & Jacques who took to it like the little marauders they are:

Okay, here we go! Stella and Jacques prepare for destruction!
Steve reported that they mashed on it for about an hour and had a wonderful time. There were pieces and parts lying all over the floor of the enclosure:
