Bronz Zoo May Lose Half It's Budget

Be as dramatic as you want red ruffled lemurs!

That wont change Mayor Bloomberg's budget plans.

The mayor wants to chop $4.7 million (50% of what they got last year) from the Bronx Zoo and the New York Aquarium, both run by the Wildlife Conservation Society.

The zoo is obviously in bad shape already. The Zoo's already had two very witty animal escapees (@BornxZooCobra, @BronxZooPeacock) in 2011, if the budget is cut any further all the charming animals will be loose in Manhattan by 2013.

In early 2009, when its budget was slashed by a half-million dollars the society closed three zoo exhibits and cut the society's staff by 186 positions, or 15%.

"We had to make some difficult decisions," John Calvelli, a society spokesman, said in an interview. "We don't have the luxury of firing our walrus."
