The Memphis Zoo recently found itself in the mouth of controversy after Memphis City Councilman Lee Harris highlighted in the news he thinks admission prices to get into the zoo are too expensive.
This week, Councilman Harris called for a review of the city's contract with the zoo and the zoo's prices, calling the facility "inaccessible" for people who can't afford admission. I, however, disagree.
Last year, my cousin and his best friend, who's become like one to me, made the trip from Louisiana up to Memphis to check out all the hot spots, especially the restaurants. One day during their visit we decided to go to the zoo, and I was especially excited because it was my first time going as well.
