    It sickens me every time I read an article like this that portrays the owners Mr plumstead and sam conner as innocent people that "came back and didnt like what he saw". They were more them aware of the problems in fact were the cause of it all and would not spend the money to fix the place up until it ment the public would find out about everything. I was a former employee of the zoo and worked tirelessly to try and work thru the problems to help the only ones that really mattered and that was the animals!! They were the ones suffering and not because of the care but because the owners were to busy playing house in flordia and spending donations for the animals on fine dining and a new car. They would be told of the problems on a daily basis but would brush it off. Many times I as well as other employees would spend money out of our own pay checks to get even the basic needs such as fruit and medicine so the animals could eat and stay healthy. Never again will I support Mr plumstead or sam conner who both hide behind the little old men image. In reality they are two of the darkest people I have ever known and I hope that one day they will never be able to run a place like the plumpton park zoo again because in the end the only ones that suffer are the animals.
