I often wonder what his life would have been like after transfer to a mental hospital or "invalid" home as they are sometimes called. I doubt if a trip to the zoo would have been on his itinerary.
Then I happened upon an article from a Ukrainian charity's website. Read this account detailing a zoo field trip for some residents of a Ukrainian invalid home.
This is just the sort of enriching experience I wish for the disabled children of Crimea. A zoo field trip is going on the Project TLC bucket list.
