Milwaukee County Zoo Report Abuse
32 points - added 5 years ago by Soundend - 1 comment
Comments:
In a book written years ago (titled 'The Best') two Ivy League grad students rated the Milwaukee Zoo #1 and the San Diego Zoo #2. Obviously, other cities have caught up, but remember, Jack Hanna is a TV personality and may have influenced the polls. The ratings are very inconsistent on the search bar tool. I haven't been to the Milwaukee Zoo in a long time but they used to have the largest of any species: Gorillas, snakes, etc. and the first zoo with a moat and open setting. I'll be at the VA in Milwaukee for 9 straight weeks for cancer treatment; I'll have to visit the zoo and see if it's still 'the best' or has been surpassed by San Diego, Bronx, Columbus, etc.
