Hi We will avoid, place sounds like it should be shut down! Animals should only be in zoos for conservation in this day and age where so many face extinction due to human behavior! Birds so bored they pull their feathers out and animals that should be roaming free shut up in appalling conditions, what kind of lesson is this for children to learn? Anyone prepared to justify it?? let me know, thanks Kathy and Martin.
