30Mar13 - Zoo review:
"This zoo is pretty poor. The animals are in cages that are just way to small. The polar bear very nearly brought me to tears. I actually feel bad for paying money to support this. It was fairly cheap to get in and it was in a nice setting but the animals made me really sad! I can't recommend this."
