County commission meeting has turned into a zoo

Celebrating the Sedgwick County Zoo’s 40th anniversary, commissioners received stuffed animals this morning from the zoo.

Karl Peterjohn got a gorilla. Jim Skelton scored a giraffe. Dave Unruh received an elephant. Tim Norton got a penguin. Richard Ranzau got a chimpanzee.

Skelton joked that he thought Ranzau won the award for the animal that best matched a commissioner’s personality.

Ranzau joked back that Skelton better not make him angry “because we’re voting on concealed carry next week.”
