We’ve posted many times when animals die. Every time is hard. Some times are very hard. This is one of those times for so many people. Keepers arrived this morning to find Max dead. This was unexpected as all appeared fine Saturday.
Dr. Cannedy has been here to check things out initially. After that, Max was taken for further testing to see if we can learn why he died. (An autopsy on an animal is called a necropsy).

Perhaps my favorite Blog post was his Personal Ad. And, let’s not forget Max’s first Christmas at the Museum when I let him out (by accident). He ran and ran and ran and ran and ran until I made him a bottle to get him to come back. So many good memories of him, but so sad to think there won’t be anymore.
