Untitled[edit]

My recent edit is not yet complete. TBC.

Is this the same as the Fleishacker Zoo, or are they different zoos? User:Zoe|(talk) 02:10, 2 May 2006 (UTC)

I think so. This is where I'm getting most of my information.

I added a bit more.

Yep, same zoo. I don't remember when it stopped being called: "Fleishacker Zoo". The article suggests the name was changed in 1941, but my parents always called it "Fleishacker" and they arrived in California a few years after that. Schmiteye 04:45, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Hopefully we will be able to remove the stub soon. (Sorry I wasn't signing my other posts.) 69.109.238.39 13:52, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Okay, I made a few more edits and I think I might take a break from this one. I also removed the stub tag but if you think it should go back, feel free to add it. Blackjack48 23:44, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Births[edit]

Putting this here for now, for archival purposes, as I'm not sure where it would go in the article (if at all). August 11, 2007 I saw a red kangaroo joey, and two baby emperor tamarins perched on their mother's back. And according to a docent, a baby giraffe had been born the previous night. -FeralDruid 18:39, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

Right arm amputated[edit]

I removed this line. I know removing content of any sort from Wikipedia is forbidden, but none of the news sources say the arm was amputated. Does accuracy count for anything or just ritualistic maintenance of content? People keep discussing her amputated right arm as mentioned in Wikipedia. What is the source for this? (Amaltheus (talk) 09:16, 30 December 2007 (UTC))

If its not documented, then you did the right thing. Accuracy counts for a lot in WP. Samwisep86 (talk) 11:50, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

See also: Muni?[edit]

I fail to see a connection between the San Francisco Zoo and Muni. Yes, I know the L-Taraval train's last stop is the zoo — so what? Anyone see a problem with deleting the link to Muni? Kinkyturnip (talk) 19:13, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Yes, the L-Taraval line is the best connection by public transportation. This fact should be part of the article.Fconaway (talk) 19:33, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Eyewitness accounts?[edit]

I added more information about the grizzy incident in which a man entered their enclosure. I didn't cite any references because I was there at the time. How does Wikipedia handle citations for eyewitness accounts? --TaviRider (talk) 23:20, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

not at all...all claims must be documented in reputable publications. --emerson7 23:45, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
