Training for Wild Animals

There's a viral video making the rounds that pushes all the cute animal buttons you might have. It also raises the ethical question of how much training is appropriate for wild animals ... even though they live out their lives in captivity. The particular video in circulation shows Eddie the sea otter at the Oregon zoo shooting baskets ... and we've posted a link to it on our facebook page. Marcy spoke about it with Tim Sinclair-Smith ... the director of zoological operations at Assiniboine Park Zoo.
