From Richard Reynolds

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
Ron Kagan is the anti-zoo zoo director, the darling of PETA. Among other things he supports anti-circus demonstrations, was one of the first to argue that elephants should never be kept in cold climates. He has said that zoos would better serve animal-kind if they would de-access exotics and act as a rehabilitation centers for abandoned and mistreated domestic animals and pets, including animals held by circus trainers who, a fortiori, mistreat them.

Detroit Zoo director may lose job for lying about Ph.D

UPDATED AT 5:58 P.M.

Detroit Zoo Director Ron Kagan could be disciplined or fired after acknowledging that he never received the doctorate degree in zoology that has appeared on his resume for years, Zoo Society Chairman Gail Warden said today.

Kagan said he completed his course work at Hebrew University in Jerusalem in the 1980s with an average in the 90s, but was never formally granted the degree because a second advisor didn’t approve his thesis.

Perhaps he should be encouraged to go back to his alma mater to complete additional studies. The articles writer has one of those "names that work". cc
