Father's Day at the Zoo

Some male Homo sapiens and male animals become fathers late in life. Take, for instance, Ringo, a 38-year-old blind harbor seal at the Milwaukee County Zoo. Ringo sired his first pup, King Julian, in June 2014 at the ripe old age (for a harbor seal) of 35. A year later he sired Siku. According to zookeepers, Ringo’s mate, Sydney, is expecting a third pup between June 8 and 14. Whatever age your father may be, bring him to the Zoo on June 19 to visit Ringo and other animal dads. All dads get free admission! While you’re at the Zoo, check out a free Kohl’s Wild Theater show in the farm area. You can also visit this summer’s special exhibit, BUGS! Larger than Life, sponsored by Sendik’s Food Markets. Exhibit cost is $2.50 per person.
