I want to know if there is a cameras by the entrance gate because what I've seen happening is so disgusting, seems like the security guys there all of them are working together including the cashiers,the other guy asked me to only pay for myself and one child and I must come to him to pay half for each of the other three by some corner...I never thought this was happening there as well I was so disgusted and he even dared to ask me am I some knd of investigator or reporter, my question to him was, do u wanna lose your job? and he said ohk go and pay then.
At the main entrance there might be cameras but we entered through the back entrance. The security and cashiers there were friendly and profesional.
We went in at the main gate but did not experience that bad. They (happy snappy) asked us if they could take pictures of us but they were inside not outside. What I would suggest report it to management. If it was from happy snappy, phone and report it.
Report it to the parks board as well as ask for the manager on duty to lay a formal complaint. Not sure how the cameras are working at the moment, difficult when people are working together. Usually use the back entrance but people going through and not paying means that the zoo has less money to look feed and look after the animals.
