Every year residents around the Sioux Empire fool their friends by leaving them messages saying someone with an animal like name would like them to call them back.
For example many people get calls saying someone named 'elle font' or 'g- raffe' would like to speak to them.
The pranksters then leave the Great Plains Zoo's number as the call back number.
Zoo officials say they receive a lot of phone calls with some very confused people.
When people call they are kindly told that they have contacted the zoo, and that particular animal cannot come to the phone at the moment.
