Living close to Reston I didn't even know they had a zoo. So I'm going to say it couldn't have been very big.

I'm in the general area, and had never heard of a zoo in Reston either.

Gotta admit that the director needs a spanking, though.

So is the wallaby dead or not?

/Then I guess she had sufficient training

the_foo: So is the wallaby dead or not?

Ha! Very nice.

From a more serious point, though, my understanding is that the training in to make sure the death is as painless as possible and that you can't hurt anything you don't mean to kill. For instance, my brother learned in veterinary school the right way to shoot a cow if you don't have "pink juice." Pink Juice being the stuff they use to put them down normally (I don't remember what he said it was) and it's colored that way because nothing else injectable is, so you can't grab it by accident.

It's a petting zoo. You'll drive right past without realizing. It's behind the Reston Farmers Market.

Really? I don't live in the area anymore but some of my best memories as a kid were visiting this zoo, especially the giant tortoises. The article gave me a sad.

This is the zoo in question. Hmmm, no wallabies listed as being at the zoo.

This being Fark, I figured this story would have some jungle love involved. To my mild relief, I was incorrect.

Coincidently, I was at a small zoo yesterday. A farkin pig broke out of its pen and was running amok, all grunting and running around. My wife, my 3 yr old son, and I were coming around a blind corner near the chicken coops. My son was running ahead a bit and came face to snout with this beast. He turns around quick and starts running back to me screaming with the pig on his heels.

It all happened so quick. I shiat you not, my wife scooped up the kid and dodged to the right. I kicked that farker in his pig gut and it was like kicking a heavy bag that you practice boxing on. He pretty much took my legs out and I fell a bit but held onto the fence. This pig was mad. He was trying to bull into me with his head. I literally punched it in the snout and he turned tail.

Then he tramples a group of duck and quail that roam loose and he headed towards another family. Same thing happened to this family except the guy was like a farkin rodeo clown or something...or maybe a farmer. He grabbed the pig in almost like a choke hold and the pig calmed right down, though the guy was filthy afterwards.

Some zoo workers came over with some kind of a short leash pole thing and corralled him back into his pen..my kid was traumatized for a bit lol...we ate pork chops for dinner.

So there's no evidence that anyone did anything ethically questionable, only that they didn't have the right paperwork or whatever? My care-ometer just can't budge. Furthermore, not totally convinced that it is or should be a crime. Fired? Sure. Arrested? Need more info.

It must suck to try and run a pay-to-enter zoo so close to the free National Zoo. You'd think they'd have to cut some corners somewhere.

She's actually good looking, so using "hot" in the headline would break Fark tradition.

Uhhh, yeah!!! I live in the DC area, and I am in Reston all the time (I do business and have friends out there)... but I had no farking idea they had a zoo. How about that...

Hmm my son loves this Zoo, went 6 times last summer. Hope they don't close it down.
 
2012-06-25 02:54:49 PM
It's a small petting zoo (about 30 acres according to the web site). We used to take the kids there all the time. It sits right in the middle of a bunch of $600K-$1mm houses, and developers would love to get their hands on that property. The National Zoo may have lots more resources, but they put down animals all the time.

It used to be called the "Pet-a-Pet Zoo". it's been there since the 70's. I used to go there when I was a kid. What the article leaves out about the death of this wallaby: they drowned it. On purpose.

But Thursday morning, Fairfax County Police executed a search warrant after an employee at the zoo said the zoo director had drowned a sick Wallaby as a means of euthanasia. In The search warrant, the employee told the officer he'd put the Wallaby in a crate, and later observed the empty crate next to a water spigot with a five gallon bucket of water.

The warrant says the employee jumped into a dumpster and found a trash bag containing the deceased wallaby which was profusely wet.
