    Background: THREE HOUSE-PAINTERS ON THE STAFF OF COPENHAGEN ZOO HAVE A HECTIC TIME CARRYING OUT THEIR DUTIES.THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE ANIMALS ARE CURIOUS AND WILL INSIST ON CHECKING THAT THE PAINTERS ARE CORRECTLY CARRYING OUT REDECORATION OF THE CAGES.

    SCIENTISTS HAVE DEVELOPED A POISON-FREE PAINT SO THAT THE LONG-STANDING TENDENCY FOR THE ANIMALS TO LICK PAINT IS NO LONGER A SERIOUS PROBLEM.IN FACT, THE SEALS, THE PENGUINS, TIGERS AND MONKEYS FIND THE NEW FORMULA PAINT QUITE DELICIOUS.

    TOURISTS FROM ALL OVER SCANDINAVIA VISIT THE COPENHAGEN ZOO THROUGHOUT THE SUMMER MONTHS.MANY OF THEM STOP AND LAUGH AT THE ANTICS THE ANIMALS GO THROUGH WHEN THEIR CAGES ARE BEING PAINTED.THE MONKEYS ARE CERTAIN THAT THE JOB IS SIMPLE - AND WANT TO DO IT THEMSELVES WHILE THE YOUNG TIGER CUBS DON'T WANT THEIR PLAY DISTURBED.THEY JUST SINK THEIR TEETH IN TO THE NEAREST PAINTER.NOT, PERHAPS, THAT THE WORKMEN MIND SINCE THEY AND THE ANIMALS ARE GREAT FRIENDS.
