Is this threat for real?

The Franklin Park Zoo in Boston claims that it will have to close down both the Franklin Zoo and the Stone Zoo in Stoneham within six months if additional funds are not provided. Currently they are funded by the State of Massachusetts, private donations and money raised from attractions.


It further stated that it will attempt to find a home for all its animals but up to 20% may not be placed and may have to be euthanized.


I can’t believe that they can not find homes for all their animals in other zoos in the US, Canada and elsewhere.


Are they seriously talking about killing perfectly healthy animals because they can’t place them? or is this just a threat to raise money and keep the zoos open?

    Ya know…I have heard this story and the governor called their bluff. I don’t know what to believe.

    But I have some experience with trying to have my sons birthday party at the zoo and it was sooo freakin expensive!!! I couldn’t believe what they charged just to use a room….It was up in the hundreds. The Bronx zoo was 1500.00 and I almost dropped dead!!! lol
    I asked the Franklin Park Zoo higher ups if they could just take a donation for I wouldn’t be using any water or anything that would cost them money and that my guests would probably buy from their store and buy FOOD!!! and they said that I would have to pay the whole amount!!!!
    Freak them!!!!! I was very saddened to hear that they would be so stupid not to take what they could get and possibly become popular with parties until they get back on their feet again….Sounds like they need some exposure now! People forget about the zoo from time to time so they were stupid not to listen to my thoughts.
    I don’t have a large income and I try and live within my means….I was sooo sad that I couldn’t afford what they were charging!!!!
    Shame on THEM!!!
