Could Montana Lose Its Zoo?

It would be a sad day if Montana lost its zoo. Lets hope it doesn’t come to that.

Representatives from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums are scheduled to visit ZooMontana in Billings on April 21-22 to see if the facility should retain its accreditation.

The AZA commission decided unanimously last month to reject a letter from the zoo board outlining the zoo’s progress after its accreditation was threatened because of its dire financial situation.

ZooMontana’s board president Ian McDonald, who has been trying to come up with a long-term financial plan, said Monday the written report from the AZA outlining what the zoo has to do to maintain accreditation was mailed Friday.

A loss of accreditation could force the zoo to give up its tigers, grizzly bears, red pandas and most other animals within months.
