There is a petting zoo and a bird feeding area. Horse carriage rides are available too.

This zoo is a joke. If its a zoo then put in zoo animals, like monkeys, elephants, tigers. Took my grandchildren twice on two different occasions and it was awful. No petting zoo, no horse carriage rides. Please! If its a zoo turn it into a zoo, if not put it back as a game preserve with the original animals.

Sadly and typically short-sighted. MCall is always a follower, never a leader. Even the way MCall phrases the question for its 'vote' is unprofessionally biased.

the cost to relocate the animals at the zoo would only be around $300,000 at most not millions. This is because most of the animals are non-threatened species and interstate transport would not be a problem. as for being competitive, zoos like Zoo America, Claws paws and Jaws, or Pocono Animal snake farm, and clyde peelings reptile zoo all are the same size or smaller than the LVZ but have more animals overall, higer attendance, and have been more profitable then the LVZ. poor oversight by the LVZ board continues to hurt the zoo.
