What to do with the old Christmas tree?
If you happen to live in Cambridgeshire, England you have an interesting option: you can throw it to the lions.
Local families and nurseries have donated their unwanted trees to Linton Zoological Gardens, where they are being used as fuel in the bio-burners, replanted in the snowy owl enclosure, and given to the lions as toys.
According to the zoo’s director Kim Simmons, real Christmas trees are “like catnip” to big cats. That’s the ‘mane’ attraction.
