Zoos in general I stay away from. This is a sad attempt for a zoo- with obviously little funding and no caretakers- the animals were thin and in horrible conditions-

Disgusting is the one word that describes this place. Left after 3 minutes. I should have followed my gut instinct and not gone in after pulling up out the front to a decaying old run down site. Animal cruelty at its finest.

Not one zoo keeper in a zoo that was dirty, had nothing for the poor dirty, underfed animals. People were throwing food at the begging animals. I have never seen anything like it. Water features were full of garbage. Many cages had no animals thank...More
