Little Rock Zoo is unsafe for animals

Need I say More?!!!!! Animals die there and a few days its all forgotten!!! What about the precious animals lives that YOU PEOPLE were responsible for?


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Another dog attack in the area killed five farm animals at the Little Rock Zoo.
In this latest case, the dogs killed four goats and one sheep and injured several others. Zookeepers spotted the dogs early Thursday morning and found where they got in, but the dogs got away.
Workers with Little Rock Animal Services were called to the Little Rock Zoo Thursday, leaving behind a dog trap after the deadly attack.
"We're going to be very vigilant about this because we've never had an incident like this before," Zoo Director Mike Blakely said.
Blakely said around 7 a.m. Thursday, zoo staff made the rounds to the Children's Farm exhibit where they found two animals that didn't belong there.
"One was a pit-bull apparently light in color, the other one is a brown and white pit-bull terrier mix, not very big dogs," Blakely said.
The dogs got in after squeezing under an area of the zoo's perimeter fence that was being prepared to lay concrete over a drainage pipe.
The zoo is working with Little Rock Animal Services on this case. Blakely said officials there tell him that the dogs are similar to the ones that got in the Dunbar Community Garden last week, killing five animals.
"It certainly isn't out of the realm of possibility that those dogs could have traveled from that part of the city over to the zoo," Blakely said.
While that connection remains under investigation, the zoo will keep those traps on hand. Blakely says this is a tough loss for his staff.
"To have them die like this, to realize how they died, it's a very difficult thing to come to grips with," said Blakely.
The zoo is temporarily closing the Children's Farm Exhibit. Crews have also re-inspected the fence for weak spots.

Another Chimpanzee Ill at the Little Rock ZOO?

For all of the readers that know my history, and for those that don't, I allowed the Little Rock Zoo to have custody of my 2 young chimps  A FEW YEARS AGO. Since then, the youngest one 7 yrs old died there last year so I keep as close of watch on the other one Mikey to make sure nothing happens to him.
The photo below I found on the Internet from someone visiting the Little Rock Zoo. This is a photo of a chimp!!!! This chimp looks like it has been losing its HAIR for awhile. I think this chimps name is chance who was one year older than Mikey when my chimps arrived at The Little Rock zoo. Boy little boy looks like hes so sick. But of course as I have found out they use a reptile vet for Chimpanzees.NOT GOOD. I had 3 special Dr.s that would care for Primates only.

My little chimp that passed away, his name was Louie. I saw a photo of Louie from a visitor about one month before he passed. His whole body was swollen. I thought they were feeding him too much. I believe that he had a thyroid problem and it was never taken care of. Such a sweet little boy to have died because of the lack of knowledge that the "REPTILE" vet wouldn't have. Shame on you Little Rock Zoo!!!! Get a Primate Vet!!!!! Take some of those visitors money and hire one!!!!!!

You better take care of this one!!! I'm watching!

Thank you to the person that took this photo.

Looks at how his lips come up a bit and are still touching. Thats a sad face, a pouty face,  an uhappy face.. Poor Chance I hope we dont read about him in the future or Im going to get the USDA out there AGAIN to see whats going on!!!!! Knowing the Little Rock Zoo this is acceptable because now he looks like a freak which will bring much more money in. PLEASE HELP HIM!!!! Little Rock Zoos history of caring for Great Apes is NOT good!!! I love you Chance and my heart is with you.

Little Rock Zoo, you need to step up and get some REAL professional to take care of these wonderful Individuals!!!!!!!

Here is a photo I found of my ex-chimpanzee Mikey at the Little Rock Zoo that was taken by another visitor in July Look at his hair. Its beautiful!!!!When we left them, both chimps had beautiful long shinny black hair. They were BOTH very healthy. Look at his shoulder, he's losing his hair there!!!!!!! They must all be stressed out or a VERY BAD DIET!!!

 Little Rock step up and take responsibilities for these animals. You promised me the safety of both Louie and Mikey and you have NOT kept your part of the bargain MR. Steve Ross. Steve Ross Haha is in charge of the species survival for Great Apes within the zoos. Looks like he needs to be fired. Oh just a note on his back ground. he was a person that for years did experiments on Chimpanzees!!!! No wonder they are dieing off. That was his choice of career which shows me he has NO respect for these animals. See, that's whats wrong with people in wrong positions. Go back to slicing and dicing Steve Ross!!!!! This time do it on rats.
