The normal thing with the animals. They had a guy dressed as a lion on top of a bus in a cage. Honestly these animals are probably treated better then most pets.

Yeah, they were there when we arrived. Honestly, as someone who also holds a zoo pass, I do think they could do better for the animals here. Last time I rode the train, I felt bad that the big cats are in a totally concrete enclosure. That can't be good in the summer.

We have an entire thread about the Wild Kingdom Zoo. Here's a quick run down. Zoo Habitats are for People, so people feel better. The animals themselves could probably care less. A majority of animals also spend their time off exhibit, on concrete, at zoos. Concrete can also be sanitized and any potential hazards can be seen. The whole zoo industry "Conservation is our Goal" PR scam and species survival plan, by the AZA, is total BS. Non AZA Zoos can't breed animals with non AZA Zoos. They only care about money, like most industry groups. IAAPA on the other hand is not like that in the slightest.

If PETA and the UARC would put their money where their mouth is, Lagoon wouldn't have had to take in so many animals during the recession. Many "sactuaries" they claim to support closed during this time, as well as zoos. Countless animals were euthanized during this time, when other facilities did not have space. Lagoon also hosted "In Transit" animals during this time, where they cared for animals until a permanent home could be found. Lagoon has rescued countless animals from being euthanized, which is really what PETA and the UARC really want. Animals born and bred in captivity would die in the wild. Everyone forgets about the Whale from Free Willy that was "Rescued" and "Returned to the Wild," unsuccessfully.

I think the cost for food and care for the animals is extremely high, can't imagine lagoon wanting to keep paying that forever. I like Gregs idea of just adding animatronics.
