Following the publication of the report, the authorities concerned have also been considering renovation for the zoo. A visit to the zoo in its current condition gives one an impression of an abandoned establishment as most of the cages are empty. Besides Juboraj, its lone lion, the zoo has a total of eight monkeys, three moorfowls and three deer on public display. Locals have complained that the zoo premises get inundated with a moderate rainfall. Because of poor maintenance, visitor turnout has been decreasing every year.
