An animal-lover was given a one-off birthday treat, when she turned keeper for the day at a Midlands zoo.
Hayley Stone, from Newport Pagnell, joined staff at Dudley Zoological Gardens (DZG) where she worked with rare lemurs and Humboldt penguins.
Her family provided the event as a surprise for her turning 30.
31-year-old Hayley, who works as a delivery driver, said: “It was such a surprise and my family chose Dudley especially, so I could meet the tapirs.
“The whole experience was excellent and it was great to work with so many different keepers and to get their individual opinions on things. It was a wonderful way to remember my 30th.”
