Zoo sets up April Fools' Day hotline

March 29, 2013 at 3:35 PM

ST. PAUL, Minn., March 29 (UPI) -- A Minnesota zoo said it is setting up four hotlines for April Fools' Day pranksters that will offer discounts on animal sponsorships.

The Como Park Zoo & Conservatory in St. Paul said set up an April Fools' Day hotline last year due to the high number of calls it would receive each year from pranksters asking for pun-infused names such as "Ms. Ellie Fint," the St. Paul Pioneer-Press reported Friday.

The zoo said pranksters can call or trick their friends into calling the numbers for Mr. Lion (651-487-8266), Ms. Ella Fint (651-487-8267), Mr. Wolf (651-487-8268), and Ms. Ann Conda (651-487-8289).

Callers will receive $10 off the price of an animal sponsorship at the zoo.
