"Wild Things" by David Samuels, now available in full on Longform

Big thanks to David Samuels, the latest guest on our podcast and the latest author to let us reprint a classic piece that was not previously online. "Wild Things," a look at the Bronx Zoo that was years in the making, was published this summer in Harper’s and quickly became one of those rare paywalled stories that breaks out on Twitter despite the fact that non-subscribers can’t read it. Enjoy.
