    Of course, even though there's actually way worse out there.

    When Dallas Zoo is #3 is on that list, you know there are problems with it! Of course their issue was behind the scenes actions, like separating the elephants to move some to other zoos.

    Dallas has been featured on previous years as well. In the past it's been for them taking in some of those imported wild elephants even though they would have been shot dead otherwise. These groups love to remove all context in order to spin their agendas, however.

    The zoo has announced their annual WCS Run for the Wild. This year's target animals are giraffes and the run will be taking place on Saturday, April 27.

    Add that to the list of herp species Bronx has gotten from LA in the last year! The zoo has also received Ethiopian Mountain Adder, Gray's Monitor, and Blessed Poison Dart Frog roughly in the last 12 months. I believe the zoos Komodo Dragons also came from LA in return for Bronx sending them Indian Gharial.
