When the zoo animal goes vegan



SANTA ANA, Calif.

— The animals that inhabit Santa Ana’s largest zoos will no longer be kept in cages.

The Santa Ana Zoo says they’re being retired, and that’s the end of the line for the animals.

Santa Ana Zoos director Dan Rocha said the zoo will shut down all of its facilities in 2019.

The zoo is one of only three in the nation with more than 3,000 animals.

The other two are in the city of Santa Cruz and the University of California Santa Cruz.

The animals are kept in small, well-ventilated cages.

There’s no veterinary care, and no medical care.

The only medical care they get is from a veterinarian who is not allowed to go to the zoos unless the zoo needs it.

Rochas said that since they’re retiring, he’ll be spending more time caring for the zebra and the black and white baboon, which are both on loan to the zoo from other zoos.

The zebra will also have to go.

The baboon will be released into a sanctuary, but it won’t be part of the zoo’s plans to rehabilitate the animals, said Rochabas.

He said they hope to have the animals back by 2021, and then it’s up to the public to decide if the animals should stay or not.

The animal rehabilitation program, which was started by Rochawas family in the 1960s, had a $300,000 budget.

It’s estimated to cost about $1 million to rehabilitates every year.

Rorcheas says that because the zoo is now closing, they’ll be able to save money on veterinary care and will be able keep the animals in their natural habitat.

The last zoos in California to stop keeping animals in cages were Santa Barbara Zoo and the Orange County Zoo in March 2018.

They were both closed due to financial issues.

Santa Cruz Zoo Director Mark Dominguez said the zookeepers there don’t want to keep animals in such a cruel environment, and he’s hoping the zoo can do something similar with the animals they keep in their facilities.

The new Santa Ana facility will be named The Zoo, after the zoo.
