The San Antonio Zoo gives the broken hearts a sense of closure this Valentine’s Day by having them call cockroaches after their despicable exes – before being fed to an animal.
As part of his very first ‘Cry Me a Cockroach‘event, people can pay $ 5 to name a cockroach and see it eaten personally or in the zoo live stream on February 14, meaning that scorned lovers don’t even have to live in Texas to live their just deserts to get.
Those who really want to take revenge on the rats in their lives have the option to spend for an upgrade and pay $ 25 to have a rodent named after their former loved ones and served with a snake.

The nutritional aspect of promoting the San Antonio Zoo is certainly unique, but it is not the only one of its kind.
The El Paso Zoo offers the same service as part of its three-day tour ‘Stop the Bugging Me event, ‘and although it is technically free, donations are appreciated.
The Bronx zoo New York also has a similar gift, although they have nothing but good intentions for their amorous promotion.
