Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele announced today, April 1st, 2013, that SeaWorld Adventure Parks will purchase the Milwaukee County Zoo and the Milwaukee County Fish Hatchery to build SeaWorld Wauwatosa. “This is an exciting project for the Milwaukee area with lots of economic development potential.For example, we have already lined up Ma Baensch Herring to […]

Spent the day at the Milwaukee County Zoo with my family. I love the zoo, even if a soft-serve ice cream cone is $2. Next time I go I’ll remember to stick a Milwaukee County resident in the driver’s seat for admission. We rode the train at the zoo. The train, of course, is a perfect […]

Good news for Zero the Polar Bear. No, he’s not out of the moat. But he was registered to vote by ACORN. I understand he’s already voted absentee. Print this entry

Zero the Polar Bear fell into the moat again at the Milwaukee County Zoo. I’m sure it’s all Scott Walker’s fault. Zookeepers assure us he can climb the steps back to his habitat, and he will when he is hungry. Zero’s regular diet includes fish, fruits and vegetables and lard balls. Hmmm, lard balls. No […]
