ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Playoff hockey has the Dallas and St. Louis Zoos flinging poop emojis at each other.

The two institutions have a bet based on the winner of the series. St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that a representative from the losing city will have to shovel 250lbs of elephant dung at the winning city’s Zoo.
The wager was placed before Friday’s game:

Dallas won the first game. But The St. Louis Zoo didn’t back down. They even threw in a few poop emojis in the second series of tweets.




If the Blues lose then the St. Louis Zoo’s senior vice president for zoological operations, Dr. Eric Miller, will be wearing a Dallas Stars jersey and holding a shovel. We think he may be rooting for the Blues a little harder than most.

The series is tied after the Blues win on Sunday. Game three will be at 8:30pm Tuesday at the Scottrade Center.
