When is the last time you told the animal in your life you loved them? Sorry, ladies, but your husband Ed with the hairy back doesn't count.

If you see yourself as a combination between Dr. Dolittle and Ace Ventura when it comes to your love for animals then the Great Plains Zoo and Delbridge Museum is where you wanna be on Saturday (February 12) for "Woo at the Zoo."

The Great Plains Zoo is giving all their visitors that day an opportunity to "woo" their favorite zoo animal by telling them how much they mean to you.

No, unfortunately, you can't bring a dozen roses and a box of chocolates for your favorite snow monkey, but you can drop off a heartfelt Valentine's Day card in your favorite animal's mailbox that will be located just outside of the animals' habitat.

According to Dakota News Now, zoo visitors will be able to create their own special handmade card or pick up one of the complimentary Valentine’s Day cards the zoo will have to offer at the admissions window on Saturday.

Either way, you'll be able to tell that special Amur tiger, snow leopard, brown bear, primate, giraffe, red panda, kangaroo, camel, rhinoceros, bison, (you get the idea), how much you love them.

If your favorite zoo animal doesn't have a mailbox outside of its habitat area, or the animal doesn't feel like being sociable on Saturday, you can leave your Valentine in the mailbox closest to your favorite animal, and the Great Plains Zoo staff will be sure to read your ooey-gooey Valentine message to its intended recipient.

12 Businesses That Would Do Great in Sioux Falls' Abandoned Gordmans Building

For thirty years the people of Sioux Falls saw the sign for Gordmans off-price department store across the parking lot from the Empire Mall.

In September of 2020, the store closed for its final time. Since then the building has sat empty, something that doesn't happen too often in Sioux Falls.

We were wondering what people in Sioux Falls would like to see take over the space. Some folks wanted their Gordmans back. It was a great place to find deals on clothing. But, all the Gordmans are gone, so that's a no-go.

And since we've gotten our Chick Fil A and Chipotle, the city is primed for another thing to line up for.
