Update to the Slippery the Seal Story

fromCTV Youtube clip

Obviously as I said in the last story the seal wasn't Slippery (he's long gone) but others we had were off to St. Louis. Atlantis,Cri Cri, Nunavut and Peanut are the names of the seals .Sad news apparently the seals were traumatized by the move to St.Louis in the air conditioned truck and two of the four seals have died .One other is ailing and being treated in Indianapolis. Mayor of London Ontario Joe Fontana has said twelve year old Nunavat, and eleven year old Atlantis have died. Cri Cri who is nineteen is ill.CriCri is being treated for severe exertional or capture myopathy,it us a (disease of the muscle) a non infectious disease of muscles characterized as damage to muscle tissues brought on by physiological changes, usually following extreme exertion, struggle and or/ stress. Peanut seems to have weathered the fourteen hour trip with no ill effects.

Update Cri Cri passed away this morning June 13
Rip Cri Cri, Atlantis and Nunavat.

  1. Too sad. When we lived in London, Storybook Gardens was a frequent trip. I'm sorry that kids to come won't have their imaginations tickled anymore by castles and tiny chapels and gentle farm scenes.
    It's a shame.

  2. me too. The chapel is till there so is the castle but it has a maze and other amusements for he children just no animals.
