"The Star Wars song came out. And then remember you had Yankee match, right? I'm doing so well in 1977. They had the two Italian stallions if I remember Joe Torre was hired halfway through the season to be manager and they had Lee missile. Out of Lincoln high school didn't do too well. I think it was what they were like, 64, 98, not good. Not good. But when that blackout came they were playing in Shea stadium that night, oh yeah. Let me see. Who was I think Lenny Randle was up for the match? I think I think. And I'm out of that fan. But I do remember 77 that was our year. What was a Billy Martin in Boston? Got into beef with regie, threw him out of the game, said he was in hustling. That was I can June. Then all of a sudden by October, bang, bang, bang, three home runs. Last one against Charlie Howe then knuckleball up for Tommy Lasorda's LA Dodgers Yankees win Yankees win. World Series. I think four two against the Dodgers. And I don't know where they were playing that night. I always kept my Sony radio on for Yankee games. When I was night manager of Mickey D's, just to get to school is because you really couldn't hear any too much. Too much interference. Well, you could catch this school. That was our year. Yeah, that was our year, Yankee is 77. Oh, yeah, your Bronx zoo, Billy Martin. A week ago, oh wait, but the point was. The lights went out. I mean, look at each split, boom. And there I was on Marion, east fordham road and Webster. And then I saw a mob go running up to him. And I walked outside because nobody wanted to break into McDonald's for max fights and strawberry shakes. Where do you think they were heading? Crazy. And they had cause and he had changed and they had ropes and they were pulling gates down. I remember that was like the beginning of rap, so everybody needed DJ equipment, so man, they cleaned that crazy Eddie's out. And then they hit the liquor stores on their way up. They hit the jewelry store, sneakers to us, of course. And then they hit the grand concourse and the shadow of Alexander's department store, they went north on the grand conquest and definitely south past a 183rd and a looted the hell out of those furniture stores. But they didn't just lose the furniture stores. They tortured them. And I remember walking around and saying, my God, this is total anarchy. Hundreds of people were running in and out of those stores. I didn't see any cops from the four 6 pink wire avenue. I didn't see any cops on the nearby 5 two preaching and Monsieur le Parkway. And I didn't see any cops coming in with hats and bats that tactical patrol force. No, no, no, you saw those guys. You knew they meant pinching and they were going to be swinging and winging. And everybody was waiting to hear from a, B, a mayor of no consequence, but how could you watch TV, right? You couldn't watch TV. There was no TV. But yeah, radio. There's a lot of people remember back then had battery powered radios or those wind them up Beijing radios. The Looney consuming from parts unknown, mister bell used to be selling by the tons in advance of Y two chaos. They never happened, right, boy. Psych. Y two chaos. I don't forget that. People had to listen to the radio. They were in their cons listening to the radius because you didn't know what was going on. You couldn't watch TV. It was no electricity. It was a blackout. Yeah, depending on radio. To know what the hell is going on. Some people, they didn't even know how to turn the radio on and they didn't even have radio Jenny longer because they depended on the black and white or their color TVs. Whether they were large or small, but they didn't work. It was a blackout. Ladies and gentlemen, what? Where and what were you doing? When that black cow came. Because you were like two days, you're riding. And looting. I think only one person was killed though, which was amazing to me. And I had nothing to do with the writing moving and shooting. As bad as it was in The Bronx along the grand concourse from fordham road, it was ten times worse in Brooklyn. Under the J train, Williamsburg and bushwick into bed stuy, right underneath the J train along Broadway man, they were like blocks that were burnt down. The looting was intense. If I remember correctly, and I all kinds of stores and crown heights, I'm trying to remember the direct proximity of crown heights, but when those lights went out, they got hit hard do a storage. I mean, they were coming out of the project. They were coming out of the tenements. They were coming out of the subways because the subways had stopped. Remember? No electricity. People were stuck in a chain thousands and thousands of people. And if I remember correctly, it was a hot, sweltering night. Our numb is one 808 four 8 9 two two two 808 four 8

"Attention was needed I'm Chris coraggio This is Bloomberg law with June grosso from Bloomberg radio In 2006 happy was the first elephant to pass a mirror recognition test which indicates self awareness like humans And animal rights advocates wanted happy to make history again as the first elephant to be recognized as a legal person entitled to protection against unlawful imprisonment Happy's attorney Monica Miller argued to New York's highest court that happy is extraordinarily intelligent and autonomous and should be able to challenge her confinement at The Bronx zoo through habeas corpus The scientists are unanimous that elephants aren't just autonomous but they're also cognitively complex emotionally intelligent altruistic highly communicative but chief judge Janet di fiori and judge Anthony cantaro express concern about the Reaper cautions of ruling for happy So does that mean that I couldn't keep a dog I mean dogs can memorize words and I think most people who have dogs or any kind of domesticated pet that way would say but they feel there's a special connection in a bond They're like their family as I think you've pointed out in the brief If I had a dog I could leave property to them Is this case about happy one exceptionally autonomous and intelligent creature or is this about all Asian elephants or all elephants What's the scope of the population we're talking about here Well it would be disingenuous to not think that this would be precedent for another elephant And by a vote of 5 to two the court ruled that happy is not a person and can not get habeas corpus relief to be moved to an elephant sanctuary The result being that she'll continue to live alone in a one acre exhibit at The Bronx zoo where she's been kept for the last 45 years Joining me is Elizabeth Stein of the non human rights project happy's New York council What do you say to the people who think this legal fight is absurd because an animal is not a human being Well if the argument is that an animal is not a human that is absolutely true We are not arguing that an animal is a human What we are arguing is that human beings have certain rights such as the fundamental right to bodily liberty protected by habeas corpus which we believe is not limited to human beings at based on the extraordinary intrinsic nature of elephants there are autonomy their extraordinary cognitive complexity We believe that happy as an elephant is entitled to the recognition of that same right that a human being has The fact that a human being has this right should never preclude a non human animal such as happy the elephant from having that same right And I think what also happens is that the term person is thrown around so much And when someone hears the term person they think of human being but in the eyes of the law a person is not the same thing as the human being They're not synonymous terms a person is merely anything whether it be an individual or an entity that has the capacity for a right Happy is a special elephant from what I understand did you choose her for that reason Well happy is a very special elephant because she was the first elephant in our self recognition test So you know that does make her very special but all elephants are extremely special in their intrinsic cognitive abilities their intrinsic autonomy their intrinsic Ness as elephants So we also chose happy because of the fact that she is in this very very very small prison at Bronx zoo because she is alone There were really many reasons for choosing happy You were asking the court to make a novel ruling here What was your argument Our argument was based on the evolution of the common law and we put forward the evidence the undisputed unrebutted scientific evidence presented by 5 of the most renowned elephant scientists based on decades of their research and studying elephants and it was through their affidavits that we presented the factual basis for happy's autonomy For the fact that she is this autonomous extraordinarily cognitively complex non human animal who suffers the same way that a human being would suffer in this imprisonment that she should be out traveling miles a day as elephants do Foraging planning elephants have a true sense of self They remember the past they know the present and can plan for the future The females such as happy are matriarchs for life They are in herd They mourn the dead They play they frolic They roam So what we were saying to the court is based on common law principles of science and fairness and equity and justice more than anything the court needed to evolve the common law to be able to recognize common law right to bodily liberty based on very sound established principles of liberty and equality that are cherished by the courts in New York And once recognizing this right her imprisonment is unlawful and the remedy for habeas corpus is released from the unlawful imprisonment The zoo's lawyer Kenneth Manning basically argued that happy was not being mistreated and the zoo was in compliance with all the animal welfare laws There's been no harm to the animal and you have three affidavits from the people at the zoo attesting to that The animals treated well She's adapted well to her surroundings They're basically legal argument was based on these other cases that we believe were wrongly decided that essentially happy as an elephant and non human animal can not have this right That unless you are human you can not have this right And yes they were saying she's happy She has a trainer she can't be moved but we had the experts who said no She's not happy No elephants in captivity If you're going to use the term happy is happy and that human beings are no substitute for an elephant being with other elephants and we cited numerous examples of elephant who had been deemed unfriendly and aggressive and too old to be moved They were moved to.

"bronx zoo" Discussed on Opening Arguments
"Responsibilities, which doesn't make sense because there's plenty of right spares in New York that do not and are incapable of very rights due to some responsibilities, children, mentally and capacitated dolls, et cetera. So what New York voters yeah, exactly. Intermediate court had basically said something that was so blatantly wrong and we couldn't get it corrected that time around. We did get we did appeal it, and they didn't take our case. And we finally, on one of our appeals, we got a really good descent who a judge fehi of the New York court appeals. And he basically had also said, this is worth hearing the next time it comes to us. Well, that's great. So let me ask you a question that I assiduously did not ask when you were on to talk about the bladensburg cross case. Because it's, you know, it's all of us in that area sort of have to come on and put on the best spin for a Supreme Court that's been unremittingly hostile to the notion of separation of church and state. This seems like so a, you know, it's a depoliticized territory, I think. And B, you know, it's the New York's highest court. So, you know, we're not we don't need to talk about what Amy Coney Barrett Brett Kavanaugh think about it. How do you rate your chances? What do you think's gonna happen? Yeah, it's interesting. It is nice and refreshing to not be having to wonder what Amy and Bret are going to be doing. I don't know. And honestly, we've this being in this area and then also being in the church state separation area, which feels more predictable in a way. Like you get a Trump judge, very unlikely to win. But here, it's not political. We've had rural New York judges that maybe even hunt, but also love like chimpanzees. One of our first judges was conservative. I think we figured that out from his voting or something. But he loved chimpanzees. And when the lawyers that were filing the original case walked into the office, we have this on the documentary. It was like, he had all these trash keys that were like chimpanzee, specific. We're like, well, this is good. This is promising. Yeah. And so, you know, I can not tell you. It's really, everyone that has on both sides of the political aisle have different views on personhood and animals. And it's not enough to know what their political background is. You know, if they're not even enough to know if they love dogs and cats, a lot of people love pets and don't care about personhood for other animals or personhood at all. So yeah. I feel like there's got to be a little bit of correlation, you know? The asshole Trump sons were the ones posing with the pictures of hunting probably some of these very same animals. Yeah, you can sometimes you can make some assumptions, but we were in the first department, which is considered we would think we thought it was going to be the most progressive core in New York because it was the one face in Manhattan. And we were pretty shocked at how rudimentary some of their questions were about this. Whereas we had more advanced and serious conversations with judges that were not as advanced career wise. So yeah, I feel like the only area where you're like, yes, we got a kangaroo court. Awesome. Yeah, exactly. Yeah, that's my one dad joke for the year. It's true though. And yeah, we're really, I'm optimistic. I mean, it would be a big humongous victory and we're asking for a leap here. But I don't think the court would take the case if it wasn't prepared to at least consider potentially ruling in our favor also would just affirm. Yeah, that's an excellent point. Just thinking about the other side, right? The Bronx zoo side. Whenever you've won and the Supreme Court, the next appellate court, assert court decides this is a case worth hearing. And you're like, well, you probably didn't do that to pat us on the back and congratulate us on what a fantastic. Exactly. Exactly. I have to ask you because we got this question a dozen times via email after expressing some sympathy for non human personhood on an episode 5 38. So I'll ask it of you. Would you have concerns that establishing personhood for non human animals would create the kind of legal precedent and record that could then be turned around and used to try and establish personhood for fetuses and really crack down on reproductive in women's rights? You don't know. I think those are already on their own path right now unfortunately, regardless of what we want. But I don't think that there's a correlation. I think partially because the science. The science, if you just look at the science of a human, that makes that makes our argument so much more compelling if you want to compare human clump of cells. I don't even say human. A clump of cells with an elephant with a chimpanzee where we've got science showing that they're self aware that they're planning for the next day that they're aware of their future. They're aware of their past. They can make gestures and communicate with one another versus a clump of cells. So our arguments with autonomy really do turn a lot on science and at least ask the court to consider the science because it makes the injustice that much more apparent. I totally agree. I was going to say the same thing. I think if anything cuts the other way. I mean, so many of these cases, it's like, look at what this animal can do that the city had baby can't do. I say that in modern two beautiful children. Yeah. But when they are, you know, when they're infants, they care, they don't, there's nothing there. They're not really even people for months. And by a certain definition if you're trying to look at some of these criteria. Yeah. Yeah, well, and obviously I'm setting up a devil's advocacy argument there. I would add that the relief that you're seeking here in terms of habeas corpus relief. Like, I would be happy to replicate that over for, you know, for fetus, right? Like the right to be extracted and let alone. Yeah. You know, that's a very good point too because that in turn by recognizing the personhood of the fetus will bring on a lot of questions about the welfare of that. It's just so bizarre to me. It's so the clump of cells you know, I've got to say, while we're spit balling strategy here, have you considered trying to have someone pass a law that elephants can't carry guns? And then use that to get conservative. Oh, they can. They can carry guns. There are many person. There's days where I sometimes think of about weird stuff like that. I'm like, it might be easier to get an elephant's right to carry off. In fact, we almost working with another country with an African country about getting passports for some chimpanzees that would recognize their personhood. And there's some sort of sometimes there's like practical things where being recognized as an individual that has inherent worth and dignity like kind of makes sense. But yes, a 100%, I think in Florida, it would be easier to get an elephant, the right to bear arms than the right to free them. Unfortunately. Well, I guess, I guess we can't have any segment that doesn't end with the institutional corruption courts in America by right wing ideologues. Monica, anything else that you really wanna add about the case that we haven't covered that the folks should know about? I think I've covered everything. I mean, I just, I would reiterate a gun that, you know, it's not. It's not a welfare case. It's a rights case. And that we are the only organization solely dedicated to seeking actual animal rights versus welfare..

Gordon gallup came up with this mark test and i assume he actually tested some animals. The one that made the biggest splash was chimpanzees. So he this big mirror just outside their cage and at first the chimpanzees acted in the way that a lot of other species do like the mirror. Image was another animal stranger. You know that you might attack After a couple of days though that changed the chimpanzees started using the mirror to look at parts of their bodies that they couldn't normally see like opening their mouth and looking at the keys. They looked at their bottoms and their genitals. I mean of course they did know of course they did then gallup with the chimps under anesthesia and marked their ears and their foreheads. With a red dye the animals woke up. They saw themselves in the mirror and what they did was to reach up and touch and examine the marks on their faces. Victim only be seen in the nearer so they realized the marks were on their own faces by looking in the mirror. Okay so that's chimps are close relatives. What about like monkeys. So he told me that monkeys could be exposed to mirrors for literally years and would never spontaneously use the mirror to do any kind of self examination like that but if somebody quietly snuck into their room and you know in a mirror was there and the monkeys saw the person in the mirror. They turn around to confront them. They could use the image of of us me and my students in the mirror to bonaventure or behavior and respond appropriately. Okay so just like my creepy low dog. That is just like your. I mean. I don't know if your dog responds appropriately. Yeah i told them about your dog and he totally thinks your dog could be using mirrors to spy on you. I mean it sounds like her no honestly but in in terms of using amir like people do to look at yourself. How many species can actually do that. Well if you ask him he thinks it's just humans chimps and orangutans. That's his view. Okay so you're saying if you ask him that makes me feel like there are other views out there. Yeah so if you ask. Diana res at hunter college. She'll tell you that dolphins and elephants can recognize themselves. And you know it is hard to test dolphins. I mean think about it. They don't have hand right right right. You can't really like poke your own face with the flipper. Yeah yeah so. She had to come up with variations of the mark test like in experiment. They used a marker to kind of draw on dolphins body in different places But they didn't do it secretly so these dolphins could actually feel the marks being made the idea was. Would they race to the mirror afterwards and orient immediately to the place where they've been marked as if they had something in mind on their way to the mirror they were going to use it as a tool to look at the mark and we and that's exactly what we found. Wow okay that's that's pretty cool. What about What about elephants. They have trunks right so it feels like you could do this kind of mark test. Maybe we'll she in some colleagues. Did study elephants at the bronx zoo and so again not so easy. They had to get this big jumbo eight by eight foot unbreakable mirror and she says the elephants seemed to look at themselves and they did all kinds of unusual things like they'd rhythmically move their trunk up and down or you know one of them would use a trunk to pull an era forward in front of the mirror like it was looking at it. One of them Touched this white x shaped mark that they put on her head you know. She used her own trunk. Sort of investigated. But two of the others didn't do that with the marta. So you know recess. She's tested other elephants since then and she does think they get it you know. She thinks they just recognize that what they see in the mirror is them okay. So so back to the original mark test developer. Gallup doesn't buy that. Dolphins and elephants no themselves in a mirror. He just doesn't think it's been conclusively shown. I mean there's been claims over the years about weird behavior with mirrors in all kinds of species. Birds fish ants even manta rays. And you know he says there's always this problem of if you have an animal doing strange stuff in front of a mirror and they do odd stop right. There's this danger of seeing whatever it is you want to see. You know what their behavior actually means can be hard to figure out. Well i mean for that matter now what does it mean if an animal unequivocally passes gallup's mark tests like does that mean that they're actually self aware gallup thinks that the tests means they're self-aware. He basically thinks that self-awareness is like being able to make yourself the object of your own attention and he says that you know if you're looking at yourself in mirror and recognizing yourself in the mirror. You're kind of like literally doing that. And that this says something about the animals internal world and its ability to understand other animals mental states But you know that's a kind of romantic idea in a way you know that that that just as muir recognition says something really profound about an animal's internal world and so you know daniel pov- anneli doesn't really buy it. So he's a researcher and he told me when he first read about gallup's mark test for mirror self recognition in high school. It made him wanna spend his whole life studying chimpanzees. I bought into the story of mirrors and self recognition hook line and sinker because it is a compelling story. Yeah i mean like wow there are creatures out there just like him just like people and all it took was a mirror to uncover this magic secret about that more. Whatever exactly but i gather from his tone. You no longer feels that way. No no i mean. He's a researcher with the university of louisiana at lafayette and he spent years studying chimps and mirrors and self recognition and all this stuff and he says you know just think about when you go to a mirror say in the morning when you wake up you drag yourself there. You're looking at your image. And like maybe you're all bedraggled with sleep in your eyes and you start having all of these thoughts you know. You're just like geez. I look older and you think about time and time is passing and then you start thinking about who you once were and your future and what other people think and on and on but is that which require do. I have to think about any of that in order to mush my teeth in front of the mirror. He says you do not need all of these higher order concepts of a self and self awareness to use a mirror in a practical way to just understand that like your physical motions are connected to the mirror in some way. Yes we saying like when a chimp interacts with its own mirror image. We can't know what it's thinking about. We have no clue. And finale pointed out to me with training in how mirrors work rhesus monkeys canaan actually learned to recognize themselves in mirrors and pass the mark test. You know so. What does it mean if an animal with training can do this. He said he doesn't think a dolphins been shown to do it yet but he says oh it could probably be taught to do it sure. What about my dog. Now what do you think. I don't know i mean maybe i mean some people have suggested dogs you know. The visual system isn't as and like self awareness or self recognition might be more like smell related..
"bronx zoo" Discussed on The Science Show
"And now in two thousand twenty one in the united states they're trying to bring back jaguars to where they once roamed freely. Meet eric sanderson of the bronx zoo. Well my first question might seem a bit eccentric. What is the word. manna hata. What does that mean to you. Well that's the name the indigenous name for manhattan and my book. I wrote at the island of many hills because there were a lot of hills on manhattan formerly. Which aren't there anymore. Although linguists came out with the paper and he said it was the place where the people went to collect. Strong would make bows. So they're strong. Would to make bows yes. What happened to the hills by the way the mountains. They leveled them early on in eighteen. Eleven adopted this plan and laid out the street grid. That new york is so famous for and it's completely rectangular grid. Put the graph paper down over the heart of the city and they took out anything that was in the way including many of the hills in lower manhattan at least until they got up the northern part of the island where the bedrock is much taller and much harder bennett. It wasn't worth the effort. Interestingly after the commissioner's plan there was a series of maps made in eighteen twenty eighteen twenty one eighteen twenty two and these maps they show the future street grid. His job was to survey in the street grid. And then they're called the farm maps because you can see the farms that were there at the time which of course have no respect to the grid and then he also marked the old streams that they were going to have to fill in and rocks that were in the middle of the streets that they were going to have to blow up so you look at these maps and you see an idea of the past and you see the reality at the time which were these farms and then you see this vision of the future. That in some parts of the city wasn't executed for another hundred years. But that's the city that we live in and then of course there's the bronx zoo your connected to the zoo. You not yes. The wildlife conservation society runs the bronx zoo and then your aquarium and three other zoos in new york although i'm affiliated with our global conservation programs that works in sixty countries around the world on wildlife conservation. Take me back. What was it like in terms of wildlife. Let's say five hundred years ago in. Manna hata and around bronx. Wow it was. It was actually really amazing. I grew up in california. I moved to new york to take this job at the zoo. Twenty two years ago and i thought the east coast was just a lot of four hours little salt marsh on the edge. But once i got here. I became very interested in what the original ecology was. Like if you could use these maps than these computer techniques and try and figure out what it was like and what we found blew everybody away myself included in manhattan had fifty five different ecosystem types over a thousand different species. Were living there. Maybe up to eighteen hundred different kinds. There were these low people indigenous people who've been living in the landscape for eight thousand years. This truly robust and productive ecosystems so robust and productive that argued in my book that if the country had been settled from the west to the east instead of the east of the west by the time we got into new york. Then maybe we would have said. Well maybe we need some national parks and maybe they would have set aside manhattan island national park. What a wonderful idea. And how many of those original beasts left still there. Well the interesting by some measures new york city has more biodiversity today than it did. Four hundred years ago because there've been so many introductions of various kinds of species central park is a globally famous place to watch birds and you can see three hundred and fifty species over the course of the year in central park. There's only been a few species have gone extinct. We've mostly lost or the large mammals you know. Wolves black bears elk for a long time. You wouldn't see dolphins whales in the harbor but recently have been coming back to one of the things that really draws me to cities. Is this sort of idea that the constantly evolving constantly changing based on the desires of the people that live there and our generation is green in the city is to bring the ecosystems back to make the city's screen is possible and that's having benefits for wildlife. Okay let's talk about jaguars now. They were removed from most of the wild areas. Something like fifty years ago. I reminded me somehow something that goes back ninety years in australian that it's the final scene tasmanian tiger. We said goodbye in about the nineteen thirties. Which is very sad. Why jaguars for you well. Jaguars are the most magnificent creature. I've ever had a chance to see i mean. They're just the personification of strength and robustness. But also the ability to walk quietly into be hidden away to be so close to you that you can't see them but somehow they're atmosphere permeates the environment around them. They're also completely. Fascinated is an ecological species. They have this very broad distribution they live from. What's not the united states down into what is now. Argentina and many many different habitat types not just tropical forest but grasslands wetlands some really dry ecosystems. Really extraordinary and. They're the top predator wherever they live in the americas america's great cat the jaguar. How many left though if you're trying to restore them they spas well density varies a lot. Different parts of the range. So there's certainly parts of the amazon that have a lot of jaguars left but in the northern range. They're very very few population. That self to the united states is in sonora mexico about eighty kilometers south of the us border but that population has been sending mail jaguars that have been coming up even with all the activity on the us. Mexico border crossed the border into the united states. And that's created a huge amount of excitement and interest and actually led me into exploring the history of the jaguar. You're not be surprised. I did a project with some colleagues where we tried to document all the observations that ever been made of jaguars in the territory. That's now the united states in found that they were all over new mexico and arizona but also these observations in california colorado oklahoma texas louisiana. Even these much more difficult. Observations from virginia and north carolina. They had a much wider distribution than the past than people. Give them credit for today. That was possible. What's the plan now. Well the official plan is from the us. Fish and wildlife service and their plan is jaguars. Stop at the. I ten freeway. Which is a major interstate freeway that goes across the southern tier of the country and when they created their plan in two thousand eighteen they somewhat unilaterally decided that that is the northern edge of jaguars in the americas and some politics and i politely disagree with that point and point out the both the history but also that if you expand your vision a little bit to the north you see that there's this enormous block of habitat in the mountains of central arizona and mexico eighty two thousand square kilometers the size of the state of south carolina in american terms a truly enormous area mostly in government. Hands is mostly. Us force service lands and then importantly to large indian reservations white mountain apache in san carlos apache reservations. Yeah the reason. I mentioned the thylacine. Tasmanian tiger is of course it was a a price on their heads and i think the similar story with jagua trying to get rid of them because of the threat to farmers and such.

Chicago's Lincoln Park Zoo reopens to the public
"WGN, the fairly new director of the Lincoln Berg Zoo with the exciting news that the Lincoln Park Zoo is open. You need to make reservations, though, which is true for just about anywhere you go right now. But I'll tell you, you can find them and it's it's worth visiting. Can you go inside buildings or Outside on Lee. I note one point We've been to the zoo several times during this pandemic on and off, and it was only outside. But I has that changed. That has changed very recently. We were given some new guidelines operate under by the state and we are able to open our buildings at a limited capacity. We're being very methodical. We do We use science and everything that we do here at the zoo, and so we're Easing into opening buildings kind of a building at a time. So currently we have two buildings that were opening when we have staffing for it, and then we're going to be starting to open more buildings as we continue to move through the spring.

We likely have not had any of the animals at Lincoln Park Zoo. Test positive for covert 19. But we, as all accredited zoos do around the country used personal protective equipment in order to ensure I know we're all familiar with face masks and other personal protective equipment. Because of our own personal use. We use that here at the zoo all of the time, especially with animals touches nonhuman primate center susceptible to many of the same diseases that we are, and it turns out the animals at The zoo's that have been diagnosed with covert 19 are, I think was that the San Diego Wildlife Park where some of the guerrillas were diagnosed lowland gorillas with covert 19? And also Malayan Tigers, and one of the species must been Asian lions at the Bronx Zoo. If I recall also a zoo in either Tennessee or Kentucky had a big cat that had it. But the good news is all of these animals have survived that have have have had it aspires. I know anyway, across the country, And as you say zoos are so careful anyway, particularly with nonhuman primates. Well, before anyone ever heard of covert 19 you you didn't want those great apes to get a cold. Which could be passed on because they can get it except sometimes it turns into a more serious respiratory disease in gorillas in particular, so it's for a very long time. Zoos have been very careful, correct. That is exactly right. We've been careful for a very long time with good reason. We want to make sure that they don't get any cold or flu or any bugs that we have the we've been protecting them by using our personal protective equipment for Decades now, so I said, going

Mirror, Mirror, On The Wall: Can You Reveal An Animal's Inner World At All?
"Okay nelson gordon. Gallup came up with this mark test. And i assume he actually you know like tested some animals. The one that made the splash was chimpanzees. So he put this big mirror just outside their cage and at first the chimpanzees acted in the way that a lot of other species do like the mirror. Image was another animal a stranger. You know that you might attack After a couple of days though that changed the chimpanzees started using the mirror to look at parts of their bodies that they couldn't normally see like opening their mouth and looking at the keys. They looked at their bottoms and their genitals. I mean of course they did know of course they did then gallup with the chimps under anesthesia and marked their ears and their foreheads. With a red dye the animals woke up. They saw themselves in the mirror and what they did was to reach out and touch and examine the marks on their faces only be seen in near so they realized the marks were on their own faces by looking in the mirror. Okay so that's chimps are close relatives. What about like monkeys. So he told me that monkeys could be exposed to mirrors for literally years and would never spontaneously use the mirror to do any kind of self examination like that but if quietly snuck into their room and you know in a mirror was there and the monkeys saw the person in the mirror. They turn around to confront them. They could use the image of of us me and my students in the mirror to bonaventure our behavior and respond appropriately. Okay so just like my creepy low dog. That is just like your. I mean. I don't know if your dog responds appropriately. Yeah i told them about your dog and he totally thinks your dog could be using mirrors to spy on you. I mean it sounds like her no honestly but in in terms of using a mirror like people do to look at yourself. How many species can actually do that. Well if you ask him he thinks it's just humans chimps entering. That's his view okay. So you're saying if you ask him that makes me feel like there are other views out there. Yes so if you ask diana at hunter college she'll tell you that dolphins and elephants can recognize themselves. And you know it is hard to test dolphins. I mean think about it. They just don't have hand right. You can't really like poke your own face with the flipper. Yeah yeah so. She had to come up with variations of the mark test. Like in one experiment. They used a marker to kind of draw on a dolphins body in different places But they didn't do it secretly so these dolphins could actually feel the marks being made the idea was. Would they race to the mirror afterwards and orient immediately to the place where they've been marked as if they had something in mind on their way to the mirror they were going to use it as a tool to look at the mark and we. That's exactly what we found. Wow okay that's that's pretty cool. What about What about elephants. They have trunks right so it feels like you do this kind of mark test. Maybe we'll she and some colleagues did study elephants at the bronx zoo and so again. Not so easy. They had to get this big jumbo eight by eight foot unbreakable mirror and she says the elephants seem to look at themselves and they did all kinds of unusual things like they'd rhythmically move their trunk or you know one of them would use a trunk to pull an era forward in front of the mirror like it was looking at it One of them touched this white x shaped mark that they put on her head. You know she used her own trunk and sort of investigated but two of the others didn't do that with the marta. So you know recess. She's tested other elephants since then and she does think they get it you know. She thinks they just recognize that what they see in the mirror is them okay. So so back to the original mark test developer. Gallup doesn't buy that. Dolphins and elephants no themselves in a mirror. He just doesn't think it's been conclusively shown. I mean there's been claims over the years about weird behavior with mirrors in all kinds of species. Birds fish aunts manta rays. And you know he says there's always this problem of if you have an animal doing strange stuff in front of a mirror and they do odd stuff right. There's this danger of seeing whatever it is you want to see. You know what their behavior actually means can be hard to figure out. Well i mean for that matter now what does it mean if an animal unequivocally passes gallup's mark tests like does that mean that they're actually self aware gallup thinks that the tests means they're self-aware. He basically thinks that self awareness is like being able to make yourself the object of your own attention and he says that you know if you're looking at yourself in mirror and recognizing yourself in the mirror. You're kind of like literally doing that. And that this says something about the animals internal world and its ability to understand other animals mental states But you know that's kind of romantic idea in a way you know that that that just as muir recognition says something really profound animals internal world. And so you know daniel pov- anneli doesn't really buy it. So he's a researcher and he told me when he first read about gallup's mark test for mirror self recognition in highschool. It made him wanna spend his whole life studying chimpanzees. You know. I bought into the story of mirrors and sulfur ignition hook line and sinker because it is a compelling story. Yeah i mean like wow there are creatures out there just like him just like people and all it took was a mirror to uncover this magic secret about that more whatever exactly but i gather from his tone. No longer feels that way. No no i mean. He's a researcher with the university of louisiana at lafayette and he spent years studying champs and mirrors and self recognition all this stuff and he says you know just think about when you go to a mirror say in the morning when you wake up you drag yourself there. You're looking at your image and like maybe you're all but drag with sleep in your eyes and you start having all of these thoughts. You're just like geez. I look older and you think about time and time is passing and then you start thinking about who you once were and your future and what other people think and on and on but is that which required do i have to think about any of that in order to brush my teeth in front of the mirror. He says you do not need all of these higher order concepts of self and self awareness to use a mirror in a practical way to just understand that like your physical motions are connected to the mirror in some way. Yes we saying like when a chimp interacts with its own mirror image. We can't know what it's thinking about. We have no clue and finally pointed out to me with training. In how mirrors work rhesus monkeys can actually learn to recognize themselves in mirrors and. Pass the mark test you know. So what does it mean if an animal with training can do this. He said he doesn't think dolphins been shown to do it yet but he says oh it could probably be taught to do it sure. What about my dog. Now what do you think. I don't know i mean maybe i mean. Some people have suggested their dogs. You know. the visual system isn't as important and like self awareness or self recognition might be more like smell related. Yeah yeah that makes sense so we need some kind of like olfactory mirror. Scientists have been working on that mattie. No okay no well thank you for this tour through the muir amazed that is research on animals and mirrors. I will think of you the next time. I see my dog gazing at my reflection. Which i imagine it's going to be in like five minutes. Enjoy
Will giving Happy the elephant human rights actually make her happy?
"Elephant at the Bronx Zoo named Happy the elephant, All right, who was in court last week? Well, actually not in court because they didn't bring happy into the courtroom, But there was a group called the Nonhuman Rights Project. That brought a lawsuit against the city of New York actually state of New York to have happy declared a person to give happy personhood. 49 year old female Asian elephants been living by herself in conditions that have well they're not wonderful to say the least. And so here, the appeals court determining whether animals or people pita Has been making these claims and filing lawsuits for years. Pita you know that bread that Mideast earner so eat? No, no, the people for the ethical treatment of animals. I always get the two confused and There. It's case after case that's filed last time. I think they did one with a chimpanzee, arguing that the genetics of chimpanzees and humans are so close. They should be. They should be both considered human beings and the court said Now I don't think so. And then there's been some really crazy ones that Richard the durable, for example, was once The plaintiff in a lawsuit to be declared A person and so here, the justices looking at this and they're actually looking. There was an appeals court decision. The loss course low record and kicked it up, and I guess the court wanted to hear it. Because the appeals court could say no S o. The judges were a little skeptical, and one of the joint justices said. Isn't this better suited for the Legislature to act on legislatures can actually deem animals People, uh, pursuant to a legislative act now that if that holds up in court, no one knows, But if anybody's gonna do, it's gonna be the Legislature and then the Justice said, I'm not so sure we're equipped to even handle these kinds of matters. And what the group argued is that happy's living conditions at the Bronx Zoo was effectively solitary confinement and arguing she's been mistreated. Now, think about this for a moment. And there's some practical aspects of this because right now animals you own their property. It's that simple. You buy. You sell animals and your that's it now. What if the animals were people? I mean, think about this legally. This is not one of those. He What if animals were people, Then we start to, you know, flying off on fantasies? No. Legally if animals repeated were people you can't own a dog. You're not allowed to own people. They call it slavery Abraham Lincoln and 14th amendment in all that stuff, Actually 13th amendment and so it has been an ongoing fight. So practically speaking, Of course, there's nowhere to go with that aunt. Legally speaking, there's nowhere to go with that, although do you remember Mitt Romney during the run for the presidency, he said. Corporations are people. And that may have cost him the race. He was nailed for that well, corporations are people for purposes of shielding liability. That's what corporations are about. They are an entity. They're not people. But they have Ah, lot of the same shields. And so they've bean s o the animal rights people of this you using that a lot Hey of corporations to be Dean people than certainly non humans, animals, hamsters, durables so happy the elefant. Can be named people. So anyway, of course, is going to go no place, but it's just kind of fun, man. I love these lawsuits.

Squirrel in Colorado tests positive for the bubonic plague
"The town of Morrison, Colorado, which I guess is just west of Denver, made the startling announcement that a squirrel is the first person or thing to have a case of bubonic plague in the country. They tested for covert as well. There's plenty of covert tests of hearing the animal before I catch the Tigers, I think have all the Corona virus tests right now lobbied for that giant feline at the Bronx Zoo. They've got on the corner for the Koven test. But how do you know how in the world would they even know if a Squirrel out of some random squirrel. They just caught it and tested it for the plague. Somebody was bored. Just a random Monday and Morrison, Colorado, the county Public Health Department, said that cats are highly susceptible to the plague from things like flea bites. Rodent scratches bites. Ingesting an infected wrote it because what they're concerned with here is that a tic or flee from this easier infected squirrel could jump onto your cat. And now the cat's got it in your house and all hell breaks loose. And you could get infected some by the fleas from the cat. And I mean the bubonic plague. Sounds awful. Doesn't it sounds worse than Cove it to me. It is potentially deadly, but I mean, if you catch it early enough that responds to the antibiotics and what you're fine.
The Teddy Bear!
"Early in the year of Nineteen O one. The manager of the Bronx Zoo in New York got a very unusual letter. The typewritten note was dated January. Second Gentleman I have a small named Jonathan Edwards and we find we do not have the accommodations to keep him so I should like to present him to the Bronx Zoological Gardens. Can you send someone out here to tend to his shipment then written by hand next to this is a further question? I think it says or shall I ship him myself but it's hard to read the messy scribbled handwriting in any case the letter is signed yours. Truly t roosevelt. Now as you might have guessed that T- Roosevelt is Theodore Roosevelt. A man who would soon unexpectedly find himself as the president of the United States. But that probably wasn't the first thing that jumped out to William Hornets manager of the Bronx Zoo. His thoughts were probably something like bear a bear a pet bear in New York. Of course you don't have any accommodations to keep them. Who Does he's a bear and wait. Did you say his name is Jonathan Edwards? Were kind of name. Is that for a bear name. A bear poo or growly or berry made even snuggles. If he's got the right personality but Jonathan Edwards Kinda Weirdo. Oh right teddy. Roosevelt Theodore you see Theodore. Roosevelt had just finished his duty. As governor of New York State that term ended on December thirty first and on that upcoming March fourth he would be sworn in as vice president of the United States in the time between governing and vice president and it seems teddy him. The idol was trying to take care of some personal matters which included but were not limited to a live bear rather than ask the million questions that were surely. On the zookeepers. Mind William Hornets. Just said yes. It was Teddy Roosevelt after all right right but Hornets did ask where on earth the bear came from soon to be vice president. Roosevelt had already moved on to other matters because his reply was short. And Sweet. My dear Mr Hornets. The back came from West Virginia. Very Truly Theodore Roosevelt's. Let's not a lot of information from a man who could be pretty verbose that means he talked a lot and he also wrote a lot dude wrote thirty five books in his lifetime over one hundred and fifty thousand letters to people so you'd think he could have offered a bit more explanation as to what he was doing with a bear at his house a few months prior he did elaborate a bit more in one of those one hundred and fifty thousand letters that he wrote to a friend. He told his pal that some supporters in West Virginia had presented the bear to him as a gift. And well. You can't say no to a gift especially a Harry. One was sharp teeth honestly. A pet bear wasn't entirely off the Charts the Roosevelt while Jonathan Edwards. The bear would eventually go to live in the Bronx Zoo. It might not have felt that much different. From the Roosevelt home to the creature he would have been more than us to being surrounded by a mess of animals. And I'm not talking about the six Roosevelt kids running around the home. I'm talking about all of their pets. The list of Roosevelt family pets goes on and on there was a lizard named bill and a pig named MoD a badger named Josefa and a blue macaw named Eli Gail Barron. Sprinkle was a hen and Peter was of course a rabbit. There are also a whole bunch of Guinea pigs with names. That don't disappoint. They were called Admiral. Dewey Dr Johnson Bishop Tone Fighting Bob Evans and Father O'Grady. As if that weren't enough there was also a one. Legged Rooster Hyena a pony and my favorite a Green Garter. Snake named Emily Spinach. As you can see the Roosevelt's took their pets and their pet names quite seriously. Animal hijinks and Shenanigans were very common among the six Roosevelt kids once when brother. Archie was sick in bed. His siblings hatched a scheme to cheer him up. They lead their pony up the stairs to his room to surprise him which it certainly did but the pony was more excited to see his reflection in a bedroom mirror so much so that he would not leave and then there was the time that Quinton burst into his father's office at the time. Teddy Theodore Right. Sorry Theodore was in the middle of an important closed-door meeting with senators and other politicians closed doors. Don't always mean much to a kid with animals in his pockets and Quinton didn't think twice about interrupting the meeting. The men kindly obliged pause the meeting while the boy threw his arms around his beloved father who Shirley laughed proudly and started to shoot the boy away but Quinton had a surprise. The boy pulled four snakes out of his pocket and place them on the table in the middle of the room. Apparently these men did not have a similar menagerie of animals in their own households because these powerful yet easily frightened men jumped up like popcorn scrambled to the edge of the room. Faster than Greece geese it was surely a funny moment for the Roosevelt's so as we've said Jonathan Edwards would live his days in the Bronx Zoo but he wasn't the only fateful bear in Teddy's life. Okay he wasn't the only fateful bear in Theodore's life no there was another. Roosevelt was sworn in as vice president and March of nineteen o one and six months later in September. He was president of the United States. It wasn't supposed to happen that way. But President William McKinley was assassinated while attending the world's bear in Buffalo New York. Theodore Roosevelt took his place and made history in many ways. Theatre was an extremely energetic. Man Some say he had a photographic memory because he could do things like perfectly recite poems that he had read and not seen again for decades. He read books nearly every day. Some people saw him read two or three pages a minute. He was very proud of his speed reading skills but it wasn't just learning that he engaged in Roosevelt loved the outdoors. In fact as a president he set aside two hundred thirty million acres of land to protect and save so that Americans for many generations could enjoy these forests parks and Animal Sanctuaries Theodore love to spend time in nature himself. He loved to horseback ride and he was also an avid hunter in November of Nineteen. O Two just after his first full year as president. He made a hunting trip to Mississippi on invitation. From the governor of the state there were several other people in the party and before long the president was the only one who had not shot a bear. This was embarrassing for the governor. How could they leave? Teddy out right right right with the feodor so anyway. In an effort to guarantee success for the president's bear hunting trip the guides devised an unfortunate and unkind plan that involved tying a bear to a tree for Roosevelt to shoot when he discovered the creature in such a state. Roosevelt was disgusted and refuse to shoot. What could have been forgotten moment soon? Captured the American imagination and then gave birth to one of the most common items found in kids rooms. All around the world still today. A cartoonist was inspired by the story and sketched an image of Roosevelt refusing to shoot the bear the cartoon ran in the Washington Post which was a major newspaper in it immediately connected Roosevelt to bears in the minds of Americans probably most of whom never even realized that he had a pet bear in New York for a while. One American who saw this was a candy shop owner from Brooklyn New York named Morris Victim. It began with two soft cuddly stuffed toy bears that he and his wife Rose had made. He stuck those bears in the window of his candy shop and called them Teddy bears before long he spent all of his time making those and even started a toy company that would live on for decades. So whether you knew it or not. That teddy bear in your bedroom is named after a president who didn't even like being called Teddy.
