Whilst in Dubbo for a trial match against the Canberra Raiders, the Canterbury Bulldogs took time out from training to visit Taronga Western Plains Zoo. The team came face to face with some of the Zoo’s most iconic animals including the Giraffe, African Elephants and Sumatran Tigers.
It was feed time at the Giraffe with the players getting the opportunity to have a Giraffe’s 40cm tongue pluck a carrot from their hands whilst Yum Yum and Cuddles, the African Elephants were very interested in demonstrated their passing and kicking skills with a football and gave a few trunk kisses to some very lucky players.
