Probably when the planners of this zoo decided to have it in Byculla, it would have been the outer periphery of the city, but in these years the city has grown to such an extent that we now have an animal kingdom in the heart of the city. So much so that SGNP which was developed around three decades ago as a wild life sanctuary too now is surrounded by human settlement and this conflict of man vs beast has resulted in quite a few tragic attacks on human beings by the leopards of the sanctuary. Veermata Jijabai Udyan is your average zoo with some malnourished animals in cages. Good outing for children.
