It's sad that animal wellbeing is being compromised- in some cases it's really great e.g. goats can roam free and have so much space to play. In other cases, loads of tiny chicks are accessible for anyone to pick up with no supervision and I watched them being dropped on many occasions. It was sad. Being able to hold chicks is a unique selling point but they need to be supervised or shut down the opportunity at all.
The animals further away from the main area have so much space and seem happy enough, but the closer you get to the entrance it's not great. The rodent shed is appalling, it smells horrendous and nothing is clean- not to mention none of the appropriate housing is provided for any of the animals (and they sell them to the public).
On top of this, I have no idea what Melsop even is- a working farm? Keeping rare breeds alive? Who knows. Signs are limited in the park and most of them are laying face down in the mud.
Melsop is trying- but they've tried too many things too fast and that's resulted in animal care being compromised. Which isn't OK and is never OK. They really need to sort this out (they've had multiple visits from the RSPCA in the past) or shut themselves down.
