The appearance Wednesday of a small traveling zoo in Camden provided some residents the chance to see, close up, certain animals they might only ever encounter on television or the Internet. Other residents, however, expressed dismay that such an exhibit was allowed to come to Camden much less exist at all. Jungle Safari, owned and operated by Robert Engesser and his wife, Patricia, of Chiefland, Fla., set up a large tent on the north end of North Towne Shopping Center in Dusty Bend.
