Did You Know? 

At its regular meeting on June 7, 1934, Durango’s City Council discussed the fact that donations for upkeep of the Durango Zoo had fallen behind and that it was doubtful that the zoo could continue. Council instructed the City Manager to wire to Salt Lake City and find out if they would take most of the animals off the City’s hands.
