In the 2019 case decision, the judge found five animals protected by the Endangered Species Act that had died at the zoo between notice of the suit and the trial. One died of sepsis. It was said the animals died early and that conditions at the park were “fetid and dystopic.”  “With this victory secured, PETA will now go full steam ahead with its efforts to get the rest of the animals out of there,” said Brittany Peet, PETA Foundation deputy general counsel for Captive Animal Law Enforcement.

In the early morning hours of Wednesday, March 29, 2006 the main building of our zoo caught fire and was completely destroyed. The building housed all of our exotic birds, reptiles, monkeys and other small animals. All of the animals inside the building with the exception of 2 alligators, perished in the fire. Due to the confusion we neglected to say that our Guard Dog, Cumber, made it out unscathed and one of the babies Ring-tailed Lemurs Bandit; was off site at the time of the fire and was not in any danger.
