Lee Richardson Zoo: Open Door Policy May Be Swinging Closed

Lead in text: 
The Lee Richardson Zoo in Garden City, Kansas, may be restricting pedestrian and vehicle traffic due to a USDA directive.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture, which has regulatory and licensing authority over the zoo, including fines and closure if warranted by infractions, has concerns that two gates at the zoo are not attended at all times the zoo is open to the public, according to a memo provided to the Garden City Commission.
