I was reading this article in the Chicago Reader about Detroit being the "Wild Wild Midwest" and there was a link to a blog, Sweet Juniper! I am SO going back to this blog to read more of the posts as this post led me to the video below of the Belle Isle Children's Zoo from 1968. The zoo was later redone in 1980 to create a more natural environmental habitat for the animals. For those who don't know, the Belle Isle Zoo was closed back in 2002 courtesy of disgraced former mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick.
