What is minimum age? My daughter is 15

Leah Snyder We should make a video similar to this concept. It would be hilarious to say we've got giraffe's (the Joey giraffe), adorable dogs, cats, birthday cakes, cookies, etc.. #summerproject

I’d love to work here but unfortunately I can’t make the open interviews.

#ConservationCorner: As Earth Day approaches, we want to share with you a wildlife trafficking crisis in Madagascar. On April 10, 10,976 critically endangered radiated tortoises were confiscated from a single residence in Toliara, Madagascar. In the days since the seizure, hundreds of tortoises had succumbed from dehydration, malnutrition and illness. The Turtle Survival Alliance (TSA) is temporarily housing the remaining rescued tortoises at a secure facility as well as providing health evaluations, triage, hydration and food. The Columbus Zoo has supported TSA since 2002, and on April 13, 2018, the Zoo’s Conservation Management Committee voted unanimously to approve an Emergency Grant to the TSA in their efforts to rescue and rehabilitate these critically endangered reptiles. These privately-raised dollars will go towards helping the collective effort to provide dire care and treatment for these seized tortoises. See the video of the raid on the house containing the tortoises here: youtu.be/BFNqpVhw1kI?t=12m5s

In addition to the Columbus Zoo’s support, a number of facilities accredited by The Association of Zoos and Aquariums are providing aid to the rescue effort that the TSA is spearheading, including The Abilene Zoo, Bronx Zoo, Dallas Zoo, Dickerson Park Zoo, Georgia Aquarium, Fort Worth Zoo, New England Aquarium, Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden, San Diego Zoo, Shedd Aquarium, Tennessee Aquarium, Topeka Zoo, Tulsa Zoo, Utah's Hogle Zoo, Wildlife Conservation Society, Zoo Atlanta and Zoo Knoxville.

Disgusting human greed takes precedence over compassion/caring for others (humans or critters)--our world is in a sad state

So thankful these tortoise were found and rescued. All of the zoos, aquariums and conservation societies are amazing for helping in the rehabilitation efforts. 💗

It is so sad to think anyone could do this.

Makes me so sad and angry!!! People can be so disgusting.

Christina Harland Johnson look at all the turtles!

People are just hateful!😡😡

DeWanna Walker, this is what Ashlynn should get into.

Criminal indicators were observed and a Patrol drug-sniffing canine alerted to the vehicle. A probable cause search revealed 142 grams of heroin in a vacuum-sealed package worth $25,276.

Finally!!! A solid good bust instead of weed!

"Turn signal violation". If you hadn't found drugs you would have hit him with something else that he would have mailed in the fine for to avoid going back to your shithole state.

If government really wanted heroin off the streets they’d leave Afghanistan and stop protecting the opium industry. But busts like this keep the prisons full and politicians’ pockets fat.

Thank you for getting it off the streets! AND GO, haters......

Good job to the officer K-9.and his fellow officers.

Finally! Someone pulled over for a turn signal violation! I wish this was enforced more often because almost no one uses them anymore! Jack

Awesome! You Troopers are best in the drug busting business. Keep up the great work. 😎

Good job officer ! Thank you for your service..

Good job officers thank you for your service keep it up God bless you and your families

Great! Keep that illegal contraband from further distributions. It's poison and needs destroyed. Thank you.

GOOD job..live OUR OHIO STATE HIGHWAY PATROL OFFICERS... PRAY FOR THEIR SAFETY

That’s what I’m talking about. Keep it up Staties get it off the streets. Thank you!

Awesome job and thank you for your service

Great another one bites the dusts keep up the good work.

The dogs did their job way to go puppy dogs I love dogs so much they're very smart and they know how to work it's just a shame a lot of people don't know much about the love and Trust and companion of a dog

Nice bust ,keep up the good work.Thank you and stay safe ! K-9 's steak time,always doing their part.

Good bust troopers. Keep up the good work. Be safe out there.

They got a tip, and then did nonsense to circumvent someone's rights to privacy, and used that to violate other people's self ownership. Sad!

Hell yeah great jobs troopers, keep up the good work keeping that crap off the streets. Thank you

Good work, keep sharp, keep safe.

Good job troops ! Keep up the great work.

Great job😁 take all the dealers down

Beautiful job ! Keep up the good work !

Great job!! Keep doing what you're doing & stay safe!!

Comment on Facebook

I don't think State Highway Patrol or any police should have to notify people of OVI check points. The way I see it you should obey the laws and stay off the road if you been drinking.

They’re required to publicly announce these checkpoints.

I dont have nothing to worry about i don't drink

Good luck troops...a drunk removed from the road is a life saved.

Sadly, I wish they didn’t have to say. I almost lost a uncle in August of 2016 and he just had his EIGHTH surgery A FEW DAYS AGO and it was his sons birthday because a drug driver!! He had to be life flighted and everything. They had to make changes to their house. My cousins were in and out of school while he was in the hospital in PA. Sad part is police were called and just couldn’t get to the guy in time. But ones who have a fit over it. Imagine yourself and your family having to go through what mine did. It’s not worth it. And I find it sad they have to treat adults like middle schoolers.

Thank you OSP!

Thank you guy from www.moveoverohio.com

THANK YOU OSHP!

take the Next of Kin forms with you and pass those out it is a great tool for Police and Family. When people have their 2 Emergency contacts w/ their driver's license Police will know who to locate easier Please do this for your family. #forever23DavidMoney sites.google.com/site/davidmoneynextofkincom/

Thank you for your service ,stay safe out there .I remember reading about a sobriety check where a driver was so drunk ,he just barreled right through it . Luckily no serious injuries.

Congratulations to Safari Golf Club on being named a "Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary" through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses. Less than 2% of the 910 golf courses in Ohio and only 2.7% of the 33,000 golf courses worldwide have achieved this distinction from Audubon International.

In addition to the sustainability programs that resulted in the Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary designation from Audubon International, Safari Golf Club supports the Columbus Zoo and The Wilds’ conservation initiatives. When patrons choose Safari Golf Club, they are making a positive impact on wildlife both locally and globally. Each of the 18 holes are also named after a species that benefits from some of the 70 conservation projects in 30 countries that the Columbus Zoo and The Wilds support annually. For more info or to book a tee time, please visit: safarigc.comGreat news! Safari Golf Club has achieved designation as a "Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary" through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses. We join less than 2% of the 910 golf courses in Ohio and only 2.7% of the 33,000 golf courses worldwide that have achieved this distinction from Audubon International.

Since 2013, up to six acres have been made “native areas” by removing invasive non-native vegetation and managing for or planting native species. There are expanded areas that are managed without chemicals or pesticides. All golf carts are electric, minimizing the carbon footprint. Additionally, Safari Golf Club has a butterfly garden that is used by monarchs during their annual migration. In 2017, 81 bluebirds and 147 purple martins fledged from nest boxes and rigs (artificial nest cavities) constructed just outside the fairway. Safari Golf Club has fledged 563 purple martins and 452 bluebirds since the program began in 2008.

Managers at Safari Golf Club continue to work closely with partners, including Preservation Parks of Delaware County and NestWatch - Cornell Lab of Ornithology Ambassador, Darlene Sillick, who has monitored birds on the course for more than 25 years.

Thank you for supporting Safari Golf Club and in turn, when you choose to play at Safari Golf Club, you support the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium and The Wilds' conservation initiatives. Each of the 18 holes are also named after a species that benefits from some of the 70 conservation projects in 30 countries that the Columbus Zoo and The Wilds support annually.

And I just want to say that we are blessed to have this post here in Delaware. Just the other night troopers stopped a vehicle in our drive through that was stolen and handled everything perfectly. Awesome troopers! They even picked up the trash that was left from having to search the vehicle!

Bottom one reminds me of Woooster Ohio

Lesson 1: Target every out of state driver, pull them over for not using a signal, hoping for a drug bust while the other 100 dealers with Ohio plates drive by.

Boy, that's tough stuff!! I could never have done that!!!
