Abandoned Jungle Habitat

Abandoned Jungle Habitat


West Milford, New Jersey (NJ), US
Jungle Habitat is one of the first big zoos to be established in NJ. It almost could be considered a precursor to Great Adventure's Safari, since it was owned by Warner Brothers, the same folks that own Six Flags.

The park opened in summer 1972, and within a few months was the subject of controversy as a tourist was mauled by lions after opening his car window, and local residents reported animals that had escaped. There were also reports of animal mistreatment and after 4 years, the park closed.
