The Zoo of Acadiana has a video message for the hit-and-run driver who did $2,000 worth of damage to arches for Christmas lights at its entrance: Fess up or we go to the cops.
The video posted Tuesday on YouTube shows a truck hitting three of at least eight arches, stopping briefly, then driving off. It asks the driver or anyone who knows the driver to let the zoo know who did it by Thursday, "before we turn this over to the police." The damage was done Friday.
The video had been viewed more than 7,000 times by Wednesday morning.
Zoo manager Matt Oldenburg created it. He says he hopes whoever hit the arches it will step up and be responsible.
