Inside the Belle Isle Zoo again



We went to the Belle Isle Zoo on Easter Weekend. There were other people there looking around, too. The place is abandoned, is being trashed, is growing up to weeds, but the electricity is still on inside it. (We did not wreck it, we just took pictures--but other people are vandalizing.)

It looks like it was a beautiful place at one time. It's a shame it's now now. Love the building, very unique.

What a wonderful place--it is a shame that it is being vandalized.

It is a wonderful place, but it is beyond salvaging now, I think. :-(

Thanks.

That is just too damn sad!

Hilda said...

So sad. The structures look so interesting too.

It is very sad, but probably beyond saving at this point even if money were available, which it's not.

Thanks.

Leaving things to rot is not an option - either pull it down or renovate. I take it they didn't forget to leave the animals.

They took the animals to another zoo--but the place is dangerous for PEOPLE--the walkways are falling apart, etc.
