The Bronx Zoo is located in the Bronx, a borough of New York City, within Bronx Park. It is the world's largest metropolitan zoo and spans 265 acres.
After the Bog Hound arrived in New York on St. Patrick's Day, it entered the Bronx Zoo and quickly cleared it up people and most of its animals. Like a typical dog, the Hound chased the zoo's wild cats up a tree. Egon Spengler later arrived but his equipment failed and he made a retreat. Ral freed all the animals and made all of them walk, talk, and do other things that only humans could do. The Ghostbusters went there to investigate, only to be ambushed and put in one of the cages. Ral introduced himself, told them of the time he was imprisoned in a statue by humans, and that what was happening to the animals was his plan for the last 3,000 years. After he left with his "children," Janine and Slimer freed the guys and they went to stop the evil animal demon.
One night, Ghash manifested in the Congo Gorilla Forest exhibit, near one of the gorillas, in the southwest part of the zoo. The Extreme Ghostbusters were called. Garrett Miller sped ahead of everyone and shot at Ghash by himself. Ghash blocked the stream but became scared and quickly flew off. Proteus appeared, in search of an earlier incarnation of the original team. The Extreme Ghostbusters fired on Proteus but did no damage. Proteus pulled Garrett to his face and examined him. Disappointed in another failure to find his quarry, Proteus teleported away. Garrett yelled out for him to come back. Roland Jackson concluded they got off lucky.
