Zookeeper was poor.

The Zoo keeper was not informed about koalas. He only just arrived from the UK. He was more interested in bagging out Australia and Australian food then the actual animal. Why did he move here if he wants to tell tourists how bad Australia is? I would fire this guy. Also maybe ask him to dress professionally if you keep him on...he looks like he is from the wrong side of the tracks with tatts everywhere.
