'Sweets- Smell Incidental To Bidders In Zoo Auction VALUT MOfrNING STA« Harfingmi. Tex at Wednesday, April 16 # 1975 —A 9 CROSSWORD PUZZLE ACROSS 56 Procured I I 1 v'1 B NEW YORK (UPI) - There were lions and burros; a jaguar called “Cagney" and a bison named “Maude;" chickens, llamas and goats, but bv far the most popular was a two-year-old female skunk who answers to the name of “Sweets. ’ ’ The animals, 90 in all, were auctioned Tuesday by Municipal S e r v i c e s Administrator John T. Carroll to ease overcrowding at three of the city’s zoos Sealed bids were received from a variety of zoos, and others, but no one was quite prepared for the onslaught of calls and mail that came from as far away as London One caller was a woman in Manhattan who inquired about the jaguar. Her husband, she explained, was giving her trouble and a big. sleek cat seemed a handy solution. Her query was quickly discarded. From Punta Arenas. Chile, came a letter from Maribel Santos. a high school student who wrote: "I do not have too much money and can pay only little, but I would like you to inform me of the price of little monkey. It happens that I have a little brother who is ill and always want ed to have one. " Brian Akin of Clinton, Iowa, bid ' $15.03 for the skunk named Sweets I can only pay $15.03. but I’ll give it a good home and i’ll feed it. “I am only 11 years old, but I plan on being a zoologist when I’m old enough. And I like animals.” Mrs. Karen Lohrey of Clark, N.J.. pointed out that she already has one skunk. “I have had her for two years. She was rather wild when I bought her. After one month, she had changed considerably. She now has the whole house to walk around I don’t keep her caged. I feed her meats and eggs mainly, and vegetables. I have tried to purchase another skunk and have had no luck. I would take very good care of her." Norman Crummel of Kalamazoo. Mich., was intested in some of the the animals, the "smaller ones" and certainly no “big leopards, lions or bison " From Yaphank. N.Y., John Rauh. bid $27 for a burro. “I have a nice barnyard for us to play together," he said, adding “I am seven years old." “I have a 10-year-old mentally retarded daughter who loves and cares for small animals with a tenderness you seldom see in anyone." wrote a mother from the Midwest "So in her behalf. I would like to make a bid of $10 for Sweets the woods kitty, as she calls it God bless you " The city responded to all the queries, and many of the writers followed through with formal bids on the official forms.
