San Francisco's Animal Control and Welfare Commission on Tuesday unanimously agreed to send a proposal to the Board of Supervisors to convert the San Francisco Zoo to an animal rescue center. The commission, an advisory council to the board on animal-related issues, wants the supervisors to hold hearings on animal welfare at the zoo, including the idea of making the facility into a sanctuary for exotic species owned privately and kept in inhumane conditions.
