The embattled Natural Bridge Zoo, which was shut down by the State Game Commission back in March, is once again open for business. WMRA’s Jessie Knadler has the story.
It’s been a long three months for Karl and Debbie Mogensen, owners of the Natural Bridge Zoo. In March, the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries suspended the zoo’s license to exhibit wild animals. The state agency used a USDA inspection report from January to conclude that, “many of the animals are confined under unsanitary and inhumane conditions.”
