Gouged at the zoo
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2012, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Last week, I took my family to the Hogle Zoo. I fully understand that we taxpayers subsidize the zoo, and I do not mind in helping the zoo to remain open.

I do mind being gouged — not over-charged, but gouged! When I went to purchase a slushy style drink for my grandkids, my jaw dropped when I was told it was $18 for three drinks! I canceled my order. The same thing happened when I wanted to purchase a souvenir.

Next time I, the taxpayer, am asked to subsidize the zoo, I will think twice.
