The saddest zoo in the world.

See all the notes and read the backstory here:


Pssst! We're on Twitter!

And Facebook!


Writes Sarah in Los Angeles: "While on vacation at the Jersey Shore last year, my dad, my fiance Paul and I decided to check out some local free zoos since the weather was less than ideal for the beach. The Cohanzick Zoo is actually NJ's first zoo and the website touted that they had over 200 birds and mammals from around the world. Sadly, most of those 200 animals were just local geese, as apparently a lot of the animals had died and the zoo hadn't had enough money to acquire any new animals when we went (2009). It was a dreary day to begin with and it was sad enough that the zoo was trying so hard to provide a service to the community, but these posted signs were the frosting on our sadness cake."
