Betty White heads to DC, talks passion for animals
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Actress Betty White is headed to Washington and her agenda includes donkeys and elephants — but not the kind roaming on Capitol Hill.
First stop is the Smithsonian Institution, followed by the National Zoo to see the pandas, harmonica-playing elephant and other animals.
On Thursday, the 90-year-old actress visits the Smithsonian Associates, an educational division of the museum complex, to discuss her career and longtime passion for animals. She will be signing copies of her book, "Betty and Friends: My Life at the Zoo."
White says her interest in animals started in the womb. She says her parents were animal nuts long before she was born.
Then on Friday, White will have a private tour of the National Zoo to see their research efforts behind the scenes.
