Much ado about boo at the zoo

The Night Safari has just cancelled its planned Halloween Horrors event due to some feedback that it has nothing to do with conservation. In addition, some believe it is not wholesome and family friendly enough. This comes in the wake of new changes in management personnel.

The event has proved popular in the past, and over 1,000 tickets have already been sold. In addition, 17 polytechnic students have put in a lot of work developing characters and costumes as part of a school project.

Halloween can be a fun family event. It can also be fun for teens and young adults, even if not suitable for the wee tots.

The rationale strikes me as highly bogus. It reminds me of the time a group of religious fanatics took over a women’s organization and tried to cram their anti-homosexual agenda down everyone’s throats. Perhaps some ultra-religious anti-devil fanatics are operating behind the scenes. I can’t wait to see who is unmasked and what tricks lie ahead. BOO!
