One of the difference between typical zoo and this one is the typical zoo usually has "exotic" animals of other continents whereas here they house animals of that region. You get see up close bobcat, cougar, elk, fox... We happen to be there when they...More

I had to say that on my heading because someone below complained about it not being like a large zoo. Well thank goodness it's not a ZOO. This is a place for injured wildlife that cannot be reintroduced into the wild. From what I could...More
