An 88-year-old animal lover who has visited her favourite zoo more than 2000 TIMES the past seven decades has been given a life membership. Animal-loving pensioner Muriel Thatcher from Wolverhampton, West Midlands, calls Dudley Zoo in the West Mids, her “second home” and she has visited every two weeks since it opened in 1937.
