Rugby couple Francine and Paul Bristo turned keepers for the day when they joined staff at Dudley

Zoological Gardens.

The pair worked with snow leopards and Brazilian tapirs at the tourist attraction as part of the 40-acre site’s Keeper for a Day experience.

Paul said: “The day was a 30th birthday present for my wife and we both had a really good time. Francine particularly enjoyed feeding the snow leopards and cuddling the tapirs. It was fantastic to get close to the animals.”
