These guys have a reputation for getting after the large industries and normally set up under cover so they have evidense when they take them to court. Why don't you take pictures so you could hold the proof and don't have to rely on others. then take the necessary action with the proper authorities. All I can say is do your research if you want them that bad..........


:Actually, I have no personal "beef" with the zoo. I have just observed very questionable husbandry practices in the reptile dept, and I know that they could do alot better. However, like most buisnesses-and the zoo IS a buisness, money is first priority. So if my concern sounds sill, so be it. However this is a very real problem and I just wanted some advice on how to address it. I figured that with the Bengals having appendix 1 status, maybe that right there would be good enough to spur something positive to happen for them. So Frank, maybe you shouldnt be so quick to judge, but more quick to help.
:In case you didnt notice I didnt post the name of the Zoo.
