This Sunday, a DVD — *Animal Odd Couples*

miki soos logoThis Sunday, the last Sunday in January (31st): Animal Odd Couples (DVD).

Cross-species relationships are being documented in increasing numbers in zoos and sanctuaries around the world. As the stories and field reports multiply, scientists have begun to reconsider what was once conventional wisdom—that humans are the only animals capable of emotions and friendships. What can we learn from inter-species relationships of unlikely couples—a lion and a coyote, a tortoise and a goose, a goat and a horse, a dog and a deer.

Come and watch this PBS/Nature program that provides some delightful new perspectives.

From 4 to 6 p.m. (+ potluck) at the Cottage, 3449 West River Road, Grand Island, NY 14072.

Please park only on the side of the road that is closer to the river.
