How long does your Christmas tree stay up after the holiday? Whenever you take yours down, you don't have to just leave it at the curb - help bring the holiday spirit to some local animals!

Berg said the zoo's bison population love to headbutt the old trees, and just like your housecat loves some catnip, lions and other large cats are love the evergreen scent.
