Fire Kills Exotic Birds at Gilcrease Sanctuary in Vegas
I know, the world is full of human tragedy. ... Still, the Gilcrease nature sanctuary in Las Vegas did a splendid job and provided a good home for exotic birds and other poor critters who had been abandoned or given up on. It was a refuge in Las Vegas in many senses of the word.
A bad fire killed about 200 of the birds and some other creatures there on Friday. Here's a report on the fire, and some background on Gilcrease.
