The story...
The zookeeper's helper gave the wrong food to some of the animals. If you can straighten out the mix-up you will be rewarded with a medium Lock-N-Lock container. Because physical caches are not allowed in Vilas Zoo or the adjacent Vilas Park the final cache will be a long walk (or a short drive).

Completion of this cache requires admission (free) to the Henry Vilas Zoo. The zoo is open 9:30am to 5:00pm everyday except some holidays.

This cartridge has been tested on my Garmin Colorado 300. Please provide feedback about performance on other devices.

(09/24/09 6:30pm) Uploaded cartridge version 1.1. Corrected final coordinates, adjusted zone sizes.
