This fact of life and nature is used to great effect by trained sheep dogs , who by varying their approach, gait and posture can get groups of sheep to do just about anything.
Isaiah –10 ESV - The wolf shall dwell… | Biblia
The sheep jumps and skips, even makes mock attacks on her canine friends, and seems utterly comfortable with them, as they do with her. Still, it tells you that underneath it all, nature is not as quite as hardwired as we might think. There are things that go deeper than the predator and prey relationship. How, then, were animals acquired? How was food bought to feed them? He had ingenuity. Non-kosher meats and non-kosher fish fish without scales have always been condemned and destroyed. Why could not the discarded food be sent to the zoo?
The rabbis listened. They deliberated.
The Kingdom Age Now, Not Then
No doubt they took into account the fact that a zoo of this kind deserved support because it brought modern people closer to an understanding of Biblical history; and certainly the land of the Bible owed it to posterity to dramatize and commemorate the Book in every possible way. In the end, the rabbis decreed that if Professor Shulov would send some of his students to carry the non-kosher food away from the Orthodox communities, he could have it all without cost. And so, through the years, the zoo has enjoyed a source of free food.
Every other step in building the zoo involved trouble. This is something one would never guess, however, from his manner or appearance. A good-humored man in his late fifties, he is quiet, gray-haired, relaxed. But promptly at seven every morning, he visits the zoo. They give the zoo every spare hour they can find. In the interest of historical accuracy, the professor makes it clear that this collection of animals did not begin as a memorial to the Bible. It was launched in as a teaching tool. When the news of these transactions reached even the ears of remote nomads, it must have sounded like a bonanza.
Possibly they consider the professor insane for wanting such creatures; neverthess, they came. Professor Shulov hurriedly obtained a gift of chicken-wire from a Jerusalem builder, persuaded a number of his students to help build cages. Almost overnight, thirty exhibits were prepared.
So many came to view them, many bringing children, that it was evident a zoo could be a popular attraction in Jerusalem. But not with those who lived near the Animal Life Corner. They complained to the university.

They complained bitterly to the civil authorities. How could they be expected to endure smells, and the howls of the wolves at night? With the help of the British District Commissioner Palestine was still a British Mandate , the zoo was moved to a site away from all residential areas. It might have prospered there. It was during these peripatetic years that the concept of a Biblical zoo caught the imagination of the professor and his friends.
They went through the Old Testament line by line, seeking references to birds and beasts. Was he speaking of the ibex or the aoudad? Or something quite different? Men of his kind are often too timid or too busy with their projects to seek personal gain. But they are seldom too timid or too busy to seek assistance for the causes in which they believe. To all he explained his purpose.
From all he solicited animal gifts. The response, though spread over several years, was remarkable.
