I know from my hand-rearing experience that there is no feeling to compare, after rearing your animal day and night, with forever being accepted by that animal as a friend.
If it is John Aspinall and Nick Marx's wish to continue the bond, they should be allowed to do so. After all, the staff choose to be at the zoo and we have never been forced to do anything against our wishes.
