No ó 58 percent
Yes ó 35 percent
Don’t know ó 6 percent
(Responses entered between Jan. 10 and Jan. 17)
Sample comments:
No:
“Lest we forget the ‘Sydney’ episode, I have no assurance that one or more of these big cats could (not) escape and wreak havoc on our community. There have been too many problems over there already. … If Chester County, S.C., doesn’t want it, why in the world would we?”
ó From “cltprol”
Yes:
“If the new owner passes all the inspections and legal regulations to have these exotic animals, why not let the zoo open? Your children are fortunate to be able to see these animals that one day may be extinct.”
ó From “clawsnpaws58”

Would you support a toll bridge to replace the I-85 bridge over the Yadkin?
