Something's Happening at the Zoo

The temporary lease for the Jackson Zoological Society ends on March 22, 2019, absent an extension.

They actually look legitimate. I figured we would see Sanford & Son zoo mgmt, LLC (formed in 2019) chosen. Think this company would consider running the zoo that is Jackson?

He got a cousin, a Taliaferro that interned at a zoo up north. They got a LLC and they gone give him a contract on our zoo. Gone get hooked up right too. Same exact folks workin the zoo now going to do they same job though.

Zooceanarium website looks shady.
1. One page had a copyright of 2013 and another says 2017
2. No address or phone number
3. No names or locations of zoos or aquariums they operate or manage

Google says they are located out of Dubai. Great

The St. Louis Aquarium at Union Station that the group will run looks amazing. Too bad we don't have the money for something like that in Mississippi.

Something's happening at the zoo alright -- feral dogs are killing zoo animals.

7:06 is right. any company worth anything will tout projects all over the website.

you can tell me you have 20 years experience, but listing projects SHOWS me what you can do..

@8:16, would you care to provide a link to a zoo management group website that fits your criteria?

Yeah, ummm, website is bullshit. Hinky at best, but that's just another of more crap. Nothing says amateur piker like hosted by Yahoo, FFS. No contact, no corporate address, no corporate hierarchy, no Board of Directors, no management projects or development projects. And no links to sites that might provide the above info. All searches on web lead to promoted web-chaff and redirect (read, LinkedIn, nuff said).

Is no there there. Enter at your own risk. Looks like crap, smells like crap. Good thing we didn't eat it...oh, wait, damn. Gonna guess this comes back to some local yokle lackey floating flack or an international grifter stroking the house on S. President. But that's just me. I'm subject to correction in light of non-specious information.

I would bet Chockway's sister is on the board. She will do Violence Interruption seminars at the zoo.

Good money after bad. Give up the hood location and move it to where it is safe, Baby Chock.

The company apparently has not qualified to do business in Mississippi by filing with the MSSOS.

9:11. zooadvisors.com

click about. gives names and a short bio of people and shows a client list

simple google search.

if you also do a simple google search about the group coming here...you find interesting things about the “world association of zoos and aquariums”- it isn’t the AZA..which zooadvisors is a member of...

What kind of troll has time to go research SOS filings for companies that have not even started doing business here yet? Like that really matters. Go pay a lawyer $50 and you are qualified.....like that means something?

Anonymous said...

No good business sign on to do any work for Jackson.Just that simple,

Anonymous said...

Any wagers that BabyChok is proposing to kick in MORE money in order for this new potential operator?

Anonymous said...

Please close the zoo. Two world class zoos in either direction. No need to have one here. It's a waste of money. That money could be used to fill Chokwe's sisters newly formed dispute resolution company, or hire more minority consulting firms to study dispute resolution advancements, etc. Lots of ways to spend that money.

Did MAC get a certificate from his secretary that says he is a certified zoo manager???

Tommy Wilken has a pic on FB where he feeds an elephant, most qualifying evidence for Zooceanarium to run a zoo.

Hey 7:23. I look at the SOS to see who is licensed to do business in MS. Yeah, it’s not a hard process, but it does identify officers, addresses and how legit a company is. This is a group that is getting a contract at the city. If they can’t follow the simple rules, how successful do you think they will be at running a zoo?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
