    The fact that the zoo is run by a convicted animal abuser didn’t seem to affect their turn-out yesterday. The place was a zoo – literally & figuratively. Full parking lot and a line of traffic down Hunter Mill Rd. trying to get in.

    Lets say the rumours are true, according to the disgruntled employee, we have an out of control zoo management. And so accordingly what are we trying to achieve? We’re trying to get the Reston Zoo to shut down? Perfect timing, because housing is making another boom and so …. you may get your wish.
