Hey folks, This is my first thread in a while and I just wanted to know if anyone had any information about the old Coventry Zoo? All I know is that it closed in the early 1970's and had an imposing African tribal figure at the entrance, other than that I'm stumped. My interest is basically to help a friend who has vague memories of the place as a child and he wants to remember more! Any help will be greatly appreciated. The only animals I'm aware they kept are bottle-nosed dolphins (ZTL) and hippo's (Google), according to Wikipedia the zoo closed in 1980 but we all know how (un)reliable that can be!
