As a general rule, I'm against giving animals weapons. But, Zoo Boise has an event coming up where they're breaking that rule and that's a good thing.

If Star Wars is your thing and you also love animals, Saturday, June 17 is as good as it gets.

I saw this event on the Zoo Boise Facebook page. Saturday, June 17 is Galactic Day at Zoo Boise. The poster they shared featured animals with lightsabers. As Charlie Sheen would say, "Winning!".

According to the description, this is going to be an interesting day. There will be Star Wars characters in the zoo, plus lots of themed exhibits and you are welcome to come dressed in Star Wars attire, if you choose to. Prepare for geek overload. Bazinga!
