It doesn't matter where you are in this world and how much food you give this animal, it is cruel to have him in a CAGE!!

Great place to visit animals and they take really great care of them. A very nice place to teach kids how to behave around them and not be cruel like some other people leaving false reviews, right John. You never had a puppy and I feel bad for you. Don't worry we will get your mom to coddle you some more.

This place is a travesty of a zoo! It should be shut down due to rampant neglect and animal cruelty. Only people without any empathy for fellow living creatures would consider going to this making a profit at any expense to the animals!

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) charged Jambbas Ranch Tours in Fayetteville, North Carolina, with nearly a dozen violations of the federal Animal Welfare Act. Despite this, the dismal menagerie is still in business, holding captive deer, elk, bison, alligators and other animals in squalid conditions.

"The repeat violations cited by the USDA include animals suffering from untreated wounds and diseases and animals kept in cramped, filthy cages and enclosures with nothing to drink but putrid water in rusty containers," according to PETA. One USDA inspector even discovered a dead goat, and a recent visitor to Jambbas saw a dead rabbit’s body lying in a rusty cage. James Bass, the menagerie’s operator, has even admitted to multiple violations of North Carolina’s cruelty-to-animals laws."

Jambbas is known to many animal rights activists for holding Ben the bear (pictured) for many years in a dismal concrete pen. Thanks to efforts by PETA and the Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF), Ben was freed. But many confined animals continue to suffer at Jambbas Ranch Tours.

Animals deserve better and happy life. If it was not to animal welfare organisations more animals would be suffering. Animals have no voice but feel like us.
