Make a zoolock. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

taunts, heal, giants - control decks tend to have counters to zoo :)

AoE cards and AoE combos (the prevalance of Zoolocks is one of the reason why many decks now carry a Wild Pyromancer or two) and taunts. You also need a few early removal cards (minor damage spells and low cost charge minions are good).

If you don't play a class that can heal themselves easily, make sure you pack a couple of Earthen Ring Farseers as well (and maybe pack a couple anyway even if you do).

Any decent deck beats zoo. If you can't beat it, you need to improve your decklist.

Actually, that's a good advice, as playing a deck helps you see how people beat it. If you want to play better, play as many different decks as you can afford.

I made a Priest deck that handles Zoo very well. Key cards to have are Shadow Madness, Shadow Word: Pain, Cabal Shadow Priest and of course Holy Nova. Thoughtsteal is also helpful, since you will usually steal 2 cheap minions which are good for countering cheap minions. And Preist is a good class against Zoo because healing makes it harder for Zoo to kill quickly before it runs out of steam.

Priest generally has very positive winrate against zoo because of Auchenai+CoH and pyromancer combos.

Just a warning thought steal might be good against zoo, but when you steal the murloc warleader do not play him when the opponent has a murloc hoard on the board! It's 2/1 all murlocs.

Though I appreciated the funnies.

Mage freeze.
Any druid deck with 10 taunts.
Priest (with wild pyro/soulpriest).

Miracle has a very good chance too, you won't be able to kill him before auctioneer turn as long as he doesn't hesitate to drop some spells, and he can just clean up all your mess once auctioneer is up. It can be close, but there's no way you can topdeck him to death.
Handlock HAS to draw taunts/shadowflames AND moltens/watchers, otherwise he's dead. Once taunts are up, just quit.

Zoo and murlock are different decks.
