"The department carefully reviewed the matters referred to us and did not find sufficient evidence to warrant a criminal investigation" DOJ spokesman Peter Carr said in a statement
...Three black bears died in May under unknown circumstance in what management called a bear "riot.” Employees converge on visitors clutching books of photos and ancient cameras offering them the chance to have their picture taken with a baby lion. A camel eating a piece of carrot from an Egyptian boy's head. Zoo staff offer families photo opportunities in the hope of receiving tips. A closed-up ticket booth with a red handprint. Parts of the zoo are closed off or in disrepair. A boy stands in front of horror masks at the zoo's market section. The shops selling souvenir items have few customers and a number of cafes and restaurants are closed. A man sits in a rest area surrounded by rubbish. The zoo is frequented by Egyptians who pay a fraction of the price charged to tourists, many visit to take advantage of one of the few green spaces in town rather than to see the animals. Two monkeys sit motionless in their cages. The zoo does not have a good history of care for its animals and many look sickly."
