This zoo will name a cockroach after your ex and then feed it to a meerkat

A little bit much, don't you think?

We get that some people fall out with their ex boyfriends and girlfriends after they breakup, but we think even in the worst of instances, this is probably a bit too far.

The El Paso Zoo in Texas is offering you the chance to name a cockroach after your ex, and they will then feed said cockroach to a meerkat.

Speaking to CBS News, El Paso Zoo event coordinator Sarah Borrego had this to say about the event.

"This is a fun way to get the community involved in our daily enrichment activities.

"The meerkats love to get cockroaches as a snack and what better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than by feeding them a cockroach named after your ex!"

Yep, she said "fun".

All you have to do is message them your ex's name, and they'll do the rest.

The event will be aired live on their Facebook page and on the El Paso Zoo's meerkat cam on Valentine's Day, to really get you in the romantic spirit.

Just last week we saw that a zoo in Sydney would name a snake after your ex in honour of Valentine's Day, which leaves us wondering, who has broken the hearts of all these zookeepers?
