NC Zoo gets $1 million gift

The North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro is getting a big gift. All thanks to a woman from Greensboro.

The 83-year-old left the zoo $1 million in her will. Juanita Spalding died last May.

Details of her will show the gift to the North Carolina Zoo Society. Spalding asked the zoo to buy land for animals to roam.

One zoo official says he met Spalding once about ten years ago but had no idea she would ever make such a generous donation.
