Points of interest

Royal is the home of Zoo Nebraska, a small roadside zoo which, though licensed by the USDA, is the subject of some controversy. In late 2005, three chimpanzees escaped, the zoo employees found that the tranquilizers they were to use were jammed. Employees had to resort to shooting and killing said chimpanzees. The zoo's only remaining chimpanzee was then sold to a private party.
