Dallas Zoo Goes Private

DALLAS (AP) – Dallas officials are turning the operation of the city's zoo
over to a private society.
City Council members voted unanimously to turn management of the Dallas
Zoo, its animals and its employees over to the Dallas Zoological Society on
Oct. 1. Officials say that could save the city $1.5 million this year and
tens of millions in each of coming years.
Supporters of the plan say privatization will open the door for increased
donations to the Dallas attraction. But some council members voiced concern
over the speed with which the city advanced the plan. They're seeking
information about continued oversight of the zoo and the public's access to zoo
