Note that Mini S Exotic Zoo in Mineola, Texas also laughingly goes by C.A.R.E.S: Conservation & Advocacy For Rare & Endangered Species.

While there we happened to walk by a building and see a marmoset looking out through the window. We walked in and couldn't believe what we saw. Tiny and filthy cages with no light on at 1:00 PM in the afternoon. No UVA/UVB lighting and completely improper cages. A staff member came running in and when we asked "why," we were told that they were "just breeders." We walked out and over to the next building. Same story. Quite a few tiny cages with no light or enrichment items. All told we probably saw 12-15 pairs of marmosets and even some endangered cotton top tamarins in deplorable conditions. My wife just started crying."

I noticed she has been getting involved in trapping and so has the guy who stole my animals. I have a suspicion that both of them are trapping animals in order to keep as live inventory for breeding and selling offspring to make money."
This photo also surfaced of a poor baby skunk being mishandled at Mini S Exotic Zoo.

Note that PETA has been investigating Mini S Exotic for years.
Mini S Zoo in Mineola, Texas has since closed it's doors to the public stating they are under attack by animal rights activists. If Mini S Zoo had nothing to hide they would allow visitors inside the hell-hole sheds where they keep the "breeders" and other, helpless poor animals that are allegedly being subjected to neglect, abuse and cruelty.
