first of all, what is a bear doing in a petting zoo? the ones, I know about have sheep, cows, horses, chickens, etc. sometimes they have zebras or giraffes. NO bears, tigers, wolves. usually a petting zoo is for children. (I am not condoning any petting zoo but they do exist.)

Abolish zoos altogether we don't need them at the cost of the abuse neglect etc that the handlers and staff heads can't provide care and love on their watch monies are not plentiful and staffing not good quality too easy to starve and neglect administer medical NO place all wildlife back into wild and let nature take it's course
