Paul Brutzki, a retired bus driver originally from Guelph, has created a zoo in the backyard of his Sault Ste. Marie residence.
Brutzki told SooToday me moved to the Sault to be closer to his grandchildren.
Although the pandemic and frequent lockdowns have not allowed him to visit with family as much as he'd like, it has afforded him ample time to get creative.
His new outlet would appear to be snow sculpting, and Brutzki has created a variety of critters to keep the kids entertained when they visit.
"It started with the tortoise and i guess i just got carried away from there," he told us as we toured his yard.
