This is the first time I have been to this zoo in 6 years. I am sickened by the animals habitat and conditions. I was expecting major improvements since my last visit but however that was not my experience. I left there today feeling sad and disappointed. The areas that most of the animals were in were unkept and overgrown. It appeared that some of the animals did not have any water. If they they did have water it was green and murky. The otter display was disturbing because their play water had toads in it. He also seemed to be alone but not sure. Regardless he looked sad. The glass was soooo nasty and slimey it was gross Some of the primate areas had worn out conditions. One of the black bears looked sickly. Where were the alligators? Where were the lions ? Where were elephants? They should show the animals more compassion , more respect. The only way to do this would be to relocate it to a better area. Lets get real. Who wants to drive through west Jackson to get to the zoo. It's very disturbing and Very unsafe. If they can't relocate, please close this zoo down. I will never come back.
