This was one of the wost kinds of animal cruelty i have ever seen. We went on a day where it was over 40 degrees outside with the humidex and the conditions were terrible. What i saw brought me to tears. The black bears were panting and looked so sick and hot. Every cage had a sad looking animal in it. I did not see any water or shady places available for the animals and what really pissed me off was the people who worked there let this go on. I went to see the wolves, who were clearly sun stroked, and the zoo keeper tried to coax them out of their semi cool spot to put on a show. I told them to please stop and they said it was what they were supposed to do. Every other tiny cage i had the misfortune of visiting had some annoying person trying to do they same thing. They would coax them with food to suffer more. The whole place had an awful smell. You could smell the hormones in the air from all the animals in heat. I asked why and was told that they try to breed the animals. I was than told when babies come they trade them with other zoos for animals they don't have. Please do not go to this place. If there are any organizations out there that can help these beautiful animals please do so and shut down papanack zoo.
