Signed. I lived in Maryland years ago and remember a roadside zoo. I felt so bad for the animals. These animals should be in a sanctuary so they have a beautiful place to live out their lives.

Just a ban all of them. Even "good" roadside zoos can't be that great.

Signed. Please tell me why we even have these zoos. They are dangerous to the animals in every way and because the grounds are probably unsanitary, they are dangerous for us as well.

Signed and noted, thanks Cal for posting.

It is criminal to hold wild animals in such conditions. If there was an animal abuse register, the owners and operators of the subject zoo, and indeed all other road-side zoos, should be added to the register.

The zoos should be closed and the animals sent to wildlife sanctuaries.

Unless a sanctuary, very few zoos should be allowed. ROADSIDE ZOOS SHOULD BE BANNED. Wild animals belong in the wild.
