Zoo’s enclosure doesn’t seem big enough


Editor: Recently, I was travelling from Windsor to Hamilton along the Lake Erie shore. I decided to take a break and visit the Greenview Aviary and Zoo.

I came away feeling very sad. I don’t understand how a place like that is allowed to keep lions, tigers, bears and baboons in small, inappropriate enclosures.

I found it appalling that the huge boa constrictor had no chance of ever stretching out or at least hanging from a branch.

Why is this abuse of wild animals allowed to exist? Surely this zoo is inspected and there are standards they must meet.
