Have you ever thought about making a living with lions, tigers, and bears?

The Minnesota Zoo held a career fair on Wednesday for young people considering working with animals. Zoo veterinarian Rachel Thompson shared her love for the job with the group. "We get to work with amazing people. We get to work with amazing animals and everyone is passionate about what they do." said Thompson.

Finding a career as a vet in a zoo isn't easy. We're told there are only a few hundred positions in the country.
