Signed. I am against bad zoos. It's no longer possible for all the wild animals to live freely but when they can't they need good zoos and good sanctuaries.

Signed. Sad that the zoo does not give a care about the animals forced to live there in aweful conditions. How about putting the zookeepers and zoo administrators in the cages and make them live in deplorable conditions.

Zoos should be properly regulated and closed down if the animals are not be appropriately looked after This has to be blamed on the state or county politicians for not doing this No animals should be kept like this now

Noted & Signed! I certainly hope that we can shut this zoo down and get the animals transported to a sanctuary! The conditions are utterly deplorable there. How tragic for these animals who once had a wonderful home in the Wild but humans put them on display in a horrific place as this zoo! It's too bad that the people responsible for this, can't be put in an unsanitary cage and have to live the life that they are forcing these animals to live!

Noted and signed. Zoos are run like a busines and must make money first, the welfare of the animals seems to come second. A badly managed Zoo will have a decrease of visitors and the treatment of the animals gets worse. Zoos should be government regulated.
