Llama Blowout at the Houston Zoo

Leaf-blowers are my least favorite tool to use in the entire zoo.  This probably dates back to my earliest years as a keeper, where I was assigned the horrendously crappy job of blowing an entire barn's worth of goat and sheep pellets (euphemism for poop) and uneaten grain into one pile, and would get reamed out if I missed a single raisin-sized drop.  Leaf-blowers are great for scattering things to the four winds... less so at gathering them into one pile.

Well, I'm glad the folks at the Houston Zoo found a good use for one, at least.  That llama looks a lot happier to see a leaf-blower than I ever was.
