Zoo plays along with April Fools' prank

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- If you get a message to call Mr. Don Key tomorrow,  the Blank Park zoo in Des Moines is one step ahead of you.

In an effort to stop the numerous prank calls it typically gets on April Fools' day, the zoo has set up four hotlines for those of you looking to trick your friends.

These numbers have been set up for such standbys as Mr. Albert Ross, Mr. C. Lyon, MS. Anna Conda and Mr. Don Key.

Here are the prank numbers:
--Mr. Albert Ross: 515-974-2670
--Mr. C. Lyon: 515-974-2671
--Ms. Anna Conda: 515-974-2672
--Mr. Don Key: 515-974-2673

Each number has a prerecorded message letting callers know they've been fooled.

The zoo says they're hoping to keep the zoo's switchboard from getting flooded with prank calls without dampening the mood of the day.
