Sounds like the owner tried to traffic some illegal animals and opened a barrel of monkeys so to speak.

Compared to a real zoo, places like that always seem shady (fun, but shady)

I'd imagine Aggieland Safari opening a few years ago hurt their business, too, and may have contributed to this (the sale, not the illegal trafficking).

I say this having never been to either.

We need a real zoo. Put it where Post Oak Mall used to be.

At the very least we need to put it on the next ballot just so texags can have something to be angry about.

We haven't been to Franklin but Aggieland Safari is definitely worth the trip.

Aggieland Safari is great. I wish it was a little closer to town.

Speaking of traffic I understand there were a lot of wrecks as people turned in there off Highway 79.

Correct, they ended up putting in a middle turn lane there.

Kansas State's vet school has a zoo affiliated with it. It would be cool if the A&M vet school would do something similar because you know we'd do it better.

The city can buy these animals and move the zoo the Macy's space.

Zoos are the crack houses of the animal kingdom. Bunch of drugged up animals just lying around.

I'm still interested in the giraffe though. I've got the space for it. I would just need to get the exotic animal permit.

Matt Damon bought a zoo. Why can't BCS?


no reason for a zoo. Austin doesn't even have a zoo.

No, first someone else needs to buy them and triple the price, only then can the city show interest.

Austin Zoo


That's not a zoo. It's mostly farm animals. I've been several times. Compared to the other zoos in this state, well, there is no comparison. It's more like an animal rescue center set up by PETA.

The city has an unused building that used to house a Macy's right? So………
