A few minutes ago I had a telephone call from my friend and colleague Chris Moiser. Clinton Keeling, the veteran zoo historian, promotor of `Zoologica` animal-exhibition, editor of `Mainly about Animals` magazine, and one time owner of a zoo in the Peak District died this morning. Apparently he had fed and cleaned out his animals, and was sitting down working on his new book when a massive heart attack killed him almost instantly. One could not wish anything more appropriate.
The thoughts and prayers of all at the CFZ go out to his widow Pam.
I knew Clin for many years, and although we didn't always get on, I always held him in the highest regard. The world of zoology is, tonight, a poorer place
