In response to a recent letter to the editor (“Even the zoo’s animals look depressed,” May 4), officials of Mill Mountain Zoo (Blue Ridge Zoological Society of Virginia) respectfully accept the opportunity to address the criticism.
The zoo’s regional contribution is noteworthy, not only as a beloved attraction but as a center commended by authorities for excellent animal care, particularly of endangered species. The health and well-being of our collection is veterinarian-monitored.
Correia is the executive director, Blue Ridge Zoological Society of Virginia.
