Patient Updates

Quick Step was released after 81 days in our care.

You can see the list of all animals released at this release in the release record.

Quick Step is a feisty one! When we checked in on him, he gave us the full "dangerous predator" routine, indicating that he didn't like us too much. That's okay, and actually a good sign ─ we don't want our little patients to like us.
