I just saw another article about the TVA manager being fired for lying! Maybe someone should take the hint!
Remember there is a city council meeting with the FOZ board on Tues. We all need to go and voice our concerns about this matter!!! LET OUR VOICES BE HEARD!!! Gary Chazen is her boss I think that is what was said in another article in the Chattanoogan, and Darde's lies are also in that article. I agree with obviousman commitment does not equal the truth, and she probably wouldn't of had to give that animal mouth to mouth if she had properly taken care of it in the first place, she lied to taxpayers on the radio and in the paper, she lied to everyone about those animals, why?, maybe to cover something up? I can tell you that I sure as heck will be at that meeting I have some questions that need to be answered, like what is the justification in lying to the public and taxpayers (who pay for the zoo) about the conditions those animals where kept in. And why she is still allowed to be in charge after it being made public that she lied!!!! I loved the Chattanooga zoo as a kid and I used to know people who worked there, they would tell me stories that I never believed about horrible things that happened there. I have changed my opinion about this place now that I know the director is a liar, and those animals died because of human error and lack of proper management. I have to say its pretty bad when the new employees have more education and training than the director herself. Whats the justification in that!
Just to clarify, I got told that I need to make this statement to avoid confusion. This is not Deborah Bond, this is a friend of hers that posted that comment above to help defend her. But Deborah just called and told me that she is just fine and doesn't need my assistance. So that is all I am going to say about this whole situation, you are on your own Debbie, good luck.
Wow OK, this is Deborah Bond I had no idea this craziness was happening (referring to comments)! To set it straight for you people who have no idea what is happening, I was contacted by Times Free Press because another former employee gave them my number because that former employee filed a complaint with USDA and Times Free Press and heard from numerous employees that are presently working at the zoo that something needed to be done soon because all the animals are sick or dying. I did not call them. And also, I was just 1 of the 4 people who sent complaints in to the USDA asking them to check things out I cant speak for the other people who sent their complaints in. I dont want this to be about me, I cant believe people are even concerned with this crap right now and not about the animals!!!! Oh, well I tried...... And again my original complaint to USDA was over a week ago not right before Hank passed away. And the original person who contacted the Times told me they contacted them weeks ago!!! This means that this info was prob sitting on their desks waiting for the time to bring it to peoples attention. Unfortunately they chose to bring it to peoples attention when Hank passed away.
