Zoo launches election of a different type

Who would make a better leader of the jungle: a manatee or a polar bear? You can decide.

The campaign supporting the March 4 levy for the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden is urging voters to get involved in an election of another sort: the “King or Queen of the Jungle Presidential “Election.”

In an effort to encourage people to become more informed about presidential candidates – and about zoo animals – the Friends of the Zoo is asking the public (particularly students) to take an online poll: Participants vote on who they want to be president (Clinton, Huckabee, McCain, Obama, Paul), and on which animal they think would make the best King or Queen of the Jungle (bald eagle, giraffe, lion, manatee, polar bear), and why. Then they are asked to match each candidate with the animal most like that person.

How about matching the vulture to the Zoo levy? The parallels are striking.

Evolutionists theorize that back in the day vultures hunted as well as bald eagles. Now after eons of scavenging off of others, they have simply made dependence a way of life.

For over a hundred years the zoo had no taxpayer funding at all. Not only did they earn their own keep; they flew to the top of their field. But lately they've developed an appetite for feeding at the public trough instead.

We need to stop this troubling trend before the Zoo loses the ability to function on its own.

Vote "No" on the Zoo levy.
