Relationship Closure: Feed a cockroach named after your ex to some zoo animals

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - Are you feeling bitter this Valentine’s Day? Maybe you have an ex still on your mind? Zoo New York had a solution.

It was a fundraiser, and for five bucks, you could name a cockroach after your ex and have it fed to the animals.

Sunday, zoo workers drew 15 names for a live feeding on Facebook. Those cockroach snacks, for some zoo chickens- Midnight, Hai Hai, Lavendar and Duck.

The hens chowed down on exes Sean, Steve, Jared, Sharon, Albert, and many more.

The fundraiser garnered more than 300 namesake roaches.

If your ex wasn’t drawn to be thrown to the chickens today, fear not, zoo officials will be feeding each and every ex to the animals over the next few days.

“Make sure you check out your emails in the next week or so and you’ll see a video of us saying we fed so and so to our red-eared slider, and you’ll see a video of us feeding a cockroach to a turtle or something like that,” said Josh Baughn with Zoo New York.

Zoo workers say because this event was so successful, be sure to look for it again next year.
