There’s Something Truly Tragic About This Abandoned Zoo In Florida

Coming from YouTube channel “The Proper People”, this footage of an abandoned zoo in Florida will really strike a chord with anyone who loved visiting the zoo as a child.

Today, it’s a tragic landscape of rusting cages, swampy boardwalks and swarming insects.

It’s amazing how such large-scale operations can just fizzle out like this. Did you ever visit this zoo while it was open? Do you know of any abandoned zoos in your area?
