No need to fight about it! The Woodland Park Zoo has a fair-n-square way to dole out their precious zoo doo.

This month gardeners of Seattle are stampeding to the online form to get their names into the Woodland Park Zoo Doo Lottery.

For those not in the know, the Woodland Park Zoo collects waste from their non-primate herbivores (think zebra, hippo, giraffe and elephant) all winter long and rations it out to local gardeners every spring.

The lottery is now open for registration and stays open until March 17.

If you become one of the lucky ones, you will get to pick up your coveted poo between April 5-9. With prices ranging from $8-$10 per garbage can, or $4 – $6 for a bag, you’ll be doo-di-doot-doo-n yourself all the way home.

Visit the Woodland Park Zoo’s website for more info.
