It's a real zoo?

County Administrator David Crawley wasn’t sure from whom the request came. But someone has asked the county if a zoo is permissible.

The county doesn’t have a zoo ordinance, as it is, and as Crawley explained to county commissioners, there is no ordinance on the books for zoos. The request was made for 40 acres off Corinth Church Road.

“This is an odd request,” Crawley said.

He told commissioners that several of his friends worked at a zoo in North Carolina and said the most dangerous animal, by far, in a zoo was an elephant.

“They have some interesting stories,” Crawley said.

There is a “shoot-to-kill” line at that zoo, he added, meaning if an animal crosses that line, “they that animal. There ifs, ands or buts about it.”

Crawley said there aren’t many federal restrictions on zoos. “You can have a tiger; you can have a chimpanzee.”
