Actually, the contract is perfectly clear that that HTWT owns this calf if it survives 30 days. The assignment clause doesn't change that or leave the parties to "hash things out" as situations arise. It just prohibits one party from unilaterally assigning the agreement or rights under the agreement without the other party's consent.
If the Zoo is going to want full ownership, it will probably have to pony up some (of our) cash.
The term "assign" in this context means either party's ability to pass it's interest on to a third-party.
You guys really should spring for an attorney to look this over before you do any more analysis of what it means.
