Always stop when driving by. Deer are fun to feed for the kids. Lots of souvenirs and the Irish souvenirs are very unique.

I saw no signs of life at 9:00 am and at noon on a brilliant Wednesday day. A fellow on a bike told me a court order had forced it to close because the animals were being mistreated. Good riddance, he said.

I have gone here several times. I enjoy feeding the deer. Howere, most animals have cages that are much too small with no entertainment. It is just concrete cages. They have finally closed the zoo for good.

This place should be closed. It is smelly, and I worry about the animals. There are cats everywhere. How can it be healthy to serve food here? Gross.

This miserable place has finally been closed due to a court order. A recent lawsuit claimed the treatment of the animals bordered on abuse and negligence. We agree. The court said the animals would be housed in various zoos throughout the area. The fact that...More

Brought my kids here on a pre school field trip. Was horrified to see just how small of an area most animals had to live in. Where's PETA ???

Awful treatment of animals. In my mind, it's wrong to keep wild animals like black bears in these small cages. The animals look depressed and barely move.

Awful. How this place is still operational is a mystery to me. The stench of cat urine when you walk through their gift shop to get to the main park is enough to stop you in your tracks. The animals are kept in cages that...More
