Good lord - the zoo of your youth looks like a nightmare. It's a miracle that your memory of it conjures up magical feelings rather than suicidal despair. Nevermind Klute, it looks like a scene in its very own B-movie.

I'm going to show this to my kids. They've been spoiled by growning up at the renovated zoos. It's been magical for them, as well, except for the rather deranged polar bears.


"Animal prison" is exactly how I have always remembered it. Concrete and steel bars were the main decor elements. There were positively ancient lions barely able to prowl, rousing only at feeding time. The chimpanzees squawked a lot, as if to protest their surroundings.
