“Upsetting!”
Review of The Zoo

Reviewed September 24, 2012

It was so upsetting to see the animals in such small cages and areas. Cruel in fact! Why can't something be done about it?
On a very hot day we didn't see any water containers of any sort for the animals to use.

I'll start with the bad -- it's dirty, neglected, poorly maintained. If you are an animal lover, you will probably not be happy with what you see.

The interesting-- paid one of the zookeepers $1 USD "baksheesh" to take us into the back section where we got to play with lion cubs and take pictures with them. Pretty cool experience...but the mother lions who were very close (in cages) were not so happy! I was excited at the time, but am not so sure how I feel about the experience anymore...

*Note: This experience was back in 2008 and I hope this is not as rampant as it used to be...hopefully the zookeepers are using the extra tips to clean up the place and actually care for the animals.
