There was a rumor going around that people could bring in 1 pound of cicadas to the Brookfield Zoo and receive five(!) bucks.
Sadly, I have confirmed with someone at the zoo that this is not the case. They are not paying for cicadas, nor are they even taking them from an eager bug-toting public.
However, there is a grain of buggy truth in the rumor. Many zoo animals are eating the cicadas.
Hey, it even made the national news!
