UPDATE: As of July, Animals Asia reported that it was in touch with Grandview Aquarium and had visited the premises. Animals Asia said it doesn't expect that the zoo will be shut down anytime soon, but is hoping that ongoing discussions will improve the animals' living conditions.
"This was our second meeting and this time I saw their facilities from top to bottom," Dave Neale, Animals Asia's animal welfare director, wrote in a blog post on July 13. "There was no attempt to hide anything from me. We also spoke to more junior staff who actually look after the animals. And now I know that our concerns are theirs too. The day after our visit, following our basic recommendations, the bear keeper provided piles of snow for the bears and is now starting a programme of enrichment. We're going to input into that for the bears and for the other animals too."
