To the editors:

Thank you for the June 2 article on Trailside by Bryan Miller.

Latest info from U.S.D.A. on the floor problem is that we could polyurethane it to seal it. "Odor" is a given, a problem big zoos accept as a daily challenge. Has R. Schwarz never visited a zoo (esp. the big cats house or the apes)? Wild things can't be toilet trained!

I am mother to Jane Morocco mentioned in B. Miller's column, & another animal lover.
