CHICAGO (CBS) — A new travelling Smithsonian exhibit about animals is on a tour of Chicago Park District Parks with stops scheduled through August 9. “Animal Connections: Our Journey Together” is built on an 18-wheel truck and features 1,000 square feet of space with displays that explore various aspects of the human-animal bond.
“What it really is about is to emphasize this connection between animals and people,” says Dr. Ron DeHaven, American Veterinary Medical Association Executive Vice President. “Everything we do in our everyday life is somehow impacted one way or the other by animals. This really highlights the role of veterinarians in caring for those animals and in doing so also taking care of people.”READ MORE: Mother Has Questions After Police Shoot, Kill Man They Say Was Wielding Knife In Englewood
