A care home in the Fens was full of animal mischief on Thursday April 4 when a local mobile zoo visited.

Residents at Rose Lodge in Wisbech were pleasantly surprised to see animals such as chickens, guinea pigs and lizards roaming around their lounge as ‘Michelle’s Animal Therapy and Petting Zoo’ popped by.

General manager, Megan Jones, said: “Our residents have really enjoyed their unusual visitors today.

“We knew that having the mobile zoo here would be a bit of fun for all our residents, especially as some find it difficult to go on many outings in our minibus.

“We are always looking for new activities for the residents and today we have seen the seen the enjoyment and the therapeutic influence animals can have on people.”

Resident Richard was very excited by the animals visit.

He said: “The bearded dragon was very interesting and I also enjoyed holding the rabbit!”
