The zoo is not to 21st century standards. Some animals looks stressed as the exhibits were just too small.

Close it immediately. Tiny cages, bored animals. No sunlight. It is a prison. I am not against zoo's, but this one is just awful.

Really looked forward to zoo but was greatly disappointed. No elephants, a lot of other animals not on display. Having to pay an additional amount to go inside aquarium; which was dreadful! Not good. Needs total modernisation.

Appalling cruelty. Ancient cages. The place stinks. The stuff of nightmares. Only visit if you enjoy seeing animal cruelty or you want to feel depressed.

I would also like to know if this hellhole of a nighmare is being shut down. Those animals don't deserve to suffer such a bleak existence. The owner is a low life scum bag and should feel ashamed of themselves.
