If I could put negative stars, I would!!!! I've been to the zoo more then once and I am so appalled at how far downhill it has become. The enclosures are small and run down. There is only 6 employees who work there and that is not enough staff for a fully functioning zoo. All the staff that I have came in contact with seemed very overwhelmed and stressed with all the extra work they need to put in. The owner is very rude, but she plays it off with a laugh. I have been told by multiple people that she has multiple sets of animals including sheep and donkeys that are inbred, and she takes the inbred babies to a separate farm out of state to hide it from the public. She has a sick giraffe "Jimmy" who has a nonstop erect genital that could possibly be a sign of a tumor. They want so badly to have a baby giraffe that they are willing to put Jimmy at risk and possibly the new female just to add an addition before something happens to Jimmy. They have also been using expired medication on the animals. The owners have way to much on their plate and they refuse to make sure the animals that they have are properly cared for and their staff. I will not be taking my family to this zoo ever again and I am so disappointed in the way the animals are being treated. I hope you guys can learn from this, and open your eyes and see what others outside are seeing and hearing. And if you can't learn from this, well then I pray you will get shut down and the animals will be able to go to a new home with people who actually do care deeply for their well being and not just the money that they get from them.
