    Animal Planet has greenlit a "docu-series" about the Bronx Zoo, presumably for this year.

    Very interesting and exciting news! However, I feel Animal Planet's current shows are targeted towards the "bunny hugger" audience and thus might not appeal to many of us on here. Fingers crossed it's not like that, though, and is a more serious and educational program.

    I'm just glad we'll be getting an Animal Planet show about animals:D Have you seen their shows lately? Most of what they show isn't even about animals now. "Treehouse Masters"? You gotta be kidding me :mad:

    I noticed that too! I'm wondering if they're using some old footage as well as new.

    The series looks interesting, and I am surprised they would have any elephant footage knowing the amount of protests that will cause. Regarding the cheetah, they could have a behind the scenes animal or it could be older footage. However; they do have some animals for special events- like red kangaroo, binturong and clouded leopard (all were at Brew the Zoo) that may only be kept behind the scenes at this time.

    Keep in mind that the zoo probably had no editorial say in the filming. The producers and Animal Planet would decide what to include. And raising an outcry perhaps wouldn't bother them :)
