  • It is not enough that just scream that animals should be returned to the natural habitat, or in treatment, to stay out of sight of the public. Those who see everyday that I am degraded public space. And I sincerely hope that he will suffer an intervention of the public prosecutor, forcing the city to relocate the animals, reforming the space for recreational use and education, returning to the Horto Florestal.

  • Some animals have yet to be placed, but in General ... it's a nice place. I intend to always come back with my family.

  • Clearly, the large animals were very thin and culled. For the rest, well maintained, with a large park for children.
