- Most of the animals had no food or water.
- Security was poor. At the time of the inspection, the zoo was supposed to be closed, yet investigators and tourists were allowed inside. A gate at one end of the zoo was left open and unattended, leaving animals vulnerable to intruders, such as the one who recently killed a bear at this zoo for his gall bladder.
- The hoolock gibbon enclosure was completely unsecured, as the door was not locked.
- A sambar was so hungry and dehydrated that he was foaming at the mouth and repeatedly banged his horns against the wire mesh fence.
- Food was kept within sight but out of the reach of two baby langurs. No water was available.
- The water bowl in one porcupine enclosure was completely dry. The floor in another porcupine enclosure was broken and covered with rotten fruit. Algae grew in the water bowl.
