Hey, I am kind of an animal person... I don't really agree with keeping animals caged in an environment that isn't natural to them. I do think that in order for knowledge and awareness to occur, there has to be a grey area. I have mixed feelings. I just hope that the animals are well taken care of, loved, and kept in environments that are at least mostly pleasant. I wouldn't discourage anyone from going to a zoo, especially one with a good reputation. I have HEARD good things about this zoo, but I haven't been since I was a kid, so I haven't seen for myself what the conditions are like.
