St. Louis Zoo going wild for Blues

Taunts Dallas Zoo on social media over second-round wager

The St. Louis Zoo is loving the St. Louis Blues.

The Blues' 4-1 win against the Dallas Stars Saturday gave them a 3-2 lead in the Western Conference Second Round and moved St. Louis within one victory of their first Western Conference Final berth in 15 years. It also pushed the St. Louis Zoo one step closer to a successful wager against its Dallas counterpart.

The zoos have been taunting each other after each game on social media, and it didn't stop Saturday.

Tweet from @DallasZoo: .@stlzoo We learned a thing or two from our - ahem - Rams. You're getting the horns in game six! ������ #VictoryRising

Dallas responded, reassuring Stars fans that the series is not over and jabbing St. Louis for recently losing its NFL team.

Tweet from @stlzoo: 4-1! @StLouisBlues Roby's now a #happy boy! Sorry @DallasZoo only 1 to go. Prepare the ����. @DallasStars �� #Poorsean

The Dallas Zoo initiated the bet about two hours before Game 1.

Tweet from @DallasZoo: How about a friendly bet as @dallasstars take on @StLouisBlues in the #StanleyCup playoffs, @stlzoo? #DALvsSTL

 St. Louis agreed in adorable fashion.

Tweet from @stlzoo: @DallasZoo @StLouisBlues Challenge accepted! Even our sea lions know how to handle a puck better than @DallasStars

Official terms of the bet have not been decided, but it's safe to assume this tweet appropriately describes what the loser's punishment will be.

Tweet from @DallasZoo: .@stlzoo @StLouisBlues Sweet! We'll think up a particularly icky payoff (probably poop-related!) for you to do after @DallasStars sweep.
