Texas Zoo Will Name Roach After Your Ex, Feed It To Live Animal By A. Klausner
The Bronx zoo has a deal where you can pay them some money and they will name one of their hissing roaches after whomever you want. They do not kill the roach; the roach remains in their exhibit, is my understanding.
As to this stunt, based out of Texas: I am not comfortable with them feeding a live roach to another animal. That seems cruel. I hope they reconsider.
Give your ex a dozen roaches this Valentines Day!
The El Paso Zoo in El Paso, Texas, will name a cockroach after your ex and then feed it to meerkat live on camera at its “Quit Bugging me Event” on Feb. 14, the zoo announced this week.
“What’s the perfect Valentine’s Day gift? Naming a cockroach after your ex, of course! Message us your ex’s name and we’ll name a cockroach after them! We’ll post names (First and last name initial!) starting February 11 here on Facebook! Watch on Facebook Live or on our website’s Meerkat webcam on Valentine’s Day at 2:15 pm to see them devour these little bugs!” the zoo wrote (Lik): on its Facebook page on Monday.
