This is indeed it. WOWT also tracked this, and has a nice plug for FlightAware as well:

The Omaha World-Herald still has a livestream of unloading the B744 running at their site as well:

The local Dallas/Fort Worth TV news reported this morning that the A/C landed around midnight at Allaince Airport. They were to be off-loaded and transported to 3-4 different Zoos of which one was the Dallas Zoo.

Apparently, you haven't realized that each of the airports they landed at is covered by a LiveATC feed. Plus when you're dealing with the logistics of unloading 18 animals weighing over a ton each, you get to marvel at how much a heavy aircraft like the B747 can actually handle.

That unloading/loading, ATC clearance and comms are what makes this very Aviation related, especially us AV GEEKS.
