Sad, sad, sad. San Antonio's Zoo smells. Literally, it smells poor. It is in the red from Africa Live Phase 1 and 2, has been attacked (rightfully, IMO) for their elephant exhibit, and this year have suffered a string of animal deaths. Africa Life 3 is on hold until they can find more cash and this zoo is short on it for now. San Antonio currently has 2 asian elephants in a small rocky quarry. When pressed about the quality of the exhibit, the zoo's official response was that the elephants are cared for because they meet the AZA requirements. I meet the national requirements to run for congress, doesn't mean I should. (Official response is found here: San Antonio Zoo and Aquarium - Animals & Exhibits) Then today I did a Google News story on SA's zoo, first hit was about a black rhino unexpectedly dying. The damning part though was Lots of deaths in one year, many high profile and these are not from age ala Dallas. This zoo still has monkeys in cages made of bars, bears in grottos of cement, and tigers on cement grottos. So, here's my question to you all: How long does San Antonio have left OR how would you work to turn it around?
