Upon walking up to the entrance I saw a little boy standing in the parking lot bawling his eyes out.
No one was really paying him any attention and he look scared.
The mama bear in me came out and I walked up to him and asked his name and how old he was and where his mama or daddy was
He said red car.
I told him let's go get a cop to help find mama.
No no the cop is bad was his response.
I told him ok, you come with me, I'm a mama too, those are.my babies (pointing at my kids) and I'm gonna find your mama.
He squeezed my hand and started walking up to the Zoo entrance.
I saw a Zoo employee running up to me shouting you found him, I have his parents let me have him.
She tried taking his hand he screamed and grabbed me
The Zoo lady told me to follow her because he trusts me.
We walked him down to the gate and his dad came running up to me grabbed him up and said thank you, where did you find him?
I said the parking lot
Omg he really got far said the dad, we were in the middle of the zoo
Thanks thank God for you. And he walked away.
I was so shook up after they walked off I cried my eyes out.
The little guy was 4 and couldn't talk well and scared and no one paid him any attention. I didn't care the circumstances, I wasn't leaving until I found his mommy.
Idk why nobody paid him attention.
I hate to think it was a race issue, but who knows. All I saw was a scared little boy.
