Lowry Park Zoo audit: Mayor Pam Iorio says the state's highest law enforcement agency should look into Lowry Park Zoo director Lex Salisbury's private dealings with the zoo.

Iorio said she also thinks the zoo board should fire Salisbury when it meets in a special session next week.

Iorio's comments came just hours after making public a city audit of Salisbury's dealings with the zoo.
