All the vet’s helpers and all the pet’s friends joined forces to put Peanut the lemur on the mend. Peanut was doing what baby ring-tailed lemurs love to do most – enjoying a nice morning climb in her favorite tree at the Summer Win… more ›

Awwww, so glad that Peanut was able to get the surgery she needed & is on the mend! Thank God for places like Summer Wind Farm...but if people would stop thinking it's "so cool" to own an exotic animal & would stop the abuse, we wouldn't need places like this.

Peanut is a very lucky Lemur! This is a great story. It is nice to see that there are some happy endings out there. A special thanks to all those vets who helped peanut. What a great thing to do. I hope Peanut is climbing those trees again soon!

Oh also I have had problem's like this before we have had a blue bird with a broken wing in our backyard before and we have had baby blue birds fall out of their nests in our back yard almost every year in the spring time and summer time so we take care of them and help them out we put the babies up in trees and the mother birds always come back to our yard and get them and put them back in the nest usaully the nest's are so high up we can't reach them safley and we can only reach low branches of trees in the back yard which seems to work just fine the birds with broken wings well we have even had a crow before with a broken wing we nurse them back to health and then let them go.

I love lemur's they are so cute in high school I ended up having to do more than one animal report the second one I did was on the platypus, but the first one I did I could not decide on just one animal so I did three reports one was on the sloth, one was on the spider monkey and one was on the Lemur then I stapled them all together and turned them in I thought I may get extra credit for doing a report on more than one animal but I was wrong and got graded down for it if I could go back and do it over I would do just one report and do it on the lemur. I am glad to hear peanut is okay though. I always thought it might be fun to go to the zoo or the african wilderness to study Lemur's in their natrual habitat.

exactly, if she broke it bad enough she needed surgery.. it would have been awful for her and so much healing time if she wasn't discovered in reasonable time.

Great news story. Hits home for me. One of my first jobs was in Southfield. I have very fond memories of the Detroit Zoo, too. It reminds me a lot of the Brookfield Zoo. Peanut was a lucky little girl. The Michigan Veterinary Specialists sound awesome.

I didn't work at the Detroit Zoo. The zoo is in Royal Oak, MI. I worked at a men's clothing store in Southfied while I was in high school one summer. It was right off 8 mile road..... remember Eminem.... 8 Mile? That always cracks me up....That's my old stomping ground. I hung around with a lot of friends that lived out that way, although I didn't live in that area.
