Flamingos at West Edmonton Mall

I can't remember where WEM got their flamingos, but I have always disagreed with them having them...they never see natural life and people tap on the glass and drop things into their enclosure from above. The mall is SO LOUD, I can barely stand to be in there for longer then a few minutes. The enclosure is also completely artificial and very small. Apparently their old home was outdoors with a real pond. The mall also has sea lions, penguins, sharks, caimen, etc. They are CAZA accredited.

      @Cat-Man: The massive mall used to keep dolphins, but also cougars, tiger cubs and baby black bears in glass tanks all around the mall.;)
