Binder Park Zoo Sells 'Doo' From Its Animals

Posted: Updated:

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) - Binder Park Zoo in Battle Creek is selling a composted mixture of manure from zebra, antelope, giraffe and other animals.

The  "Zoo Doo" event takes place this Thursday and again June 5.

Horticulturist Frank Cummins says the zoo has compost available from herbivores that will sell at $25 a load to zoo members and $30 for nonmembers. Cummins says that the price is a deal, since cow manure can sell for around $2 or $3 a bag.

Binder Park Zoo has sold composted manure in previous years. The zoo says it's a "fun and creative way" to raise money and dispose of compost.

It also uses the compost as fertilizer at its facilities, but has extra this year.
