The lions, tigers and bears will soon be smoke-free -- at the Minnesota Zoo.

The zoo south of the Twin Cities is banning outdoor smoking beginning Saturday.

Smoking inside was made a no-no long ago.

The Association of Zoos and Aquariums notes nearly two-thirds of their members have smoking restrictions.

Minnesota Zoo visitors who want to smoke will be allowed to light up in the parking lot.
