Also, how to save on the feed bill

I have a modest proposal for the Memphis Zoo, if it plans to continue clear-cutting sections of the Old Forest to expand its exhibits, while other (treeless) parts of the zoo property lie fallow or underused:

Take this practice to its logical conclusion and kill and stuff all the animals under your care -- except for animals that can be trained to earn their room and board by performing productive tasks for the Zoological Society. Mummified animals, like stripped and leveled landscapes, are far more flexible for exhibit development.
