In an interview this morning on Cap Radio's Insight program, Elk Grove Mayor Bobbie Singh-Allen revealed more information on the possible relocation of the Sacramento Zoo.

In the recording posted below, Singh-Allen addressed possible traffic implications on the zoo's location near the soon-to-open Sky River Casino. 

Singh-Allen and Valenzuela also touched on comments by Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg who has said they will explore more ways to retain the facility the reportedly attracts a half a million visitors a year
