The Amarillo Zoo's April Fool's Joke

Posted: Updated:
Amarillo, TX - The Amarillo Zoo is charging general admission for a new exhibit that is just an April Fool's Joke. 

The new exhibit is of what they are calling "Sasquatch." 

Zoo officials say this is not real- it is just meant as a joke. 

NewsChannel 10 asked if the zoo would refund money to those who may be upset over this after finding out the "Sasquatch" isn't real. The Amarillo Zoo says they hope people will laugh along with them.

Zoo Coordinator, Mike Boley says they are hoping everyone has a good sense of humor. "We're hoping that people understand that it is April 1st, April Fools Day," said Boley. 
The zoo stayed open late Tuesday from 6p.m. to 9p.m. The zoo's other exhibits were also open.
