Description of Nasal Spray Stinks to Confused Reader

DEAR ABBY: Knowing that you are an animal lover, I am writing with the hope that this will reach many zoo visitors.

Recently, a monkey in our zoo died because she was fed something poisonous by a visitor. There are signs on all of our animal cages requesting "DO NOT FEED THE ANIMALS," but some visitors pay no attention to them.

Abby, it is heartbreaking when, in spite of all our training and care, we cannot prevent a death because some well-meaning visitor ignores our "No Feeding" signs. Please print this as a reminder. -- SAD IN HAWAII
