I live in the small community of Choupique, Louisiana and the one thing I have longed and longed for was a zoo. Ummm? How about one out here?

I am serious! Why should the likes of Lake Charles, Sulphur, or Moss Bluff be considered? I have an uncle with millions of acres out in this neck of the woods. Various huge properties with cows, bulls, horses, pigs, coyotes, skunk, snakes, spiders, mice, and alligators.

What would hurt if he were to add a giraffe, hippos, tigers, lions, gorillas, rhinos, monkeys, and an elephant? Really? Wouldn't that be awesome?

Okay, ummm? Maybe we should rethink the rhino part of my idea.
