National Zoo Fencing Needed
Now that roadways to the National Zoological Park have been completed, construction of a tight fence is needed around the entire park in order to prevent the entrance of dogs and other predatory animals and to allow small game to run at large. A number of attacks on zoo animals, several resulting in death, are listed in the Annual Report for 1900.
