Elin Magnusson

Gunnar Svensson has recently retired. After having lived in the city for 45 years, he decided to return to his childhood home in the countryside. He says he was born to be retired. He is now running a zoo without fences and has become a friend of the wagtail, the smooth snake, the owls, the badgers and many more. I have never met anyone with such interest in animals, apart from myself. Gunnar is my dad and he tells me that my eyes are becoming like his.
