Back in January we decided to go explore The Wildlife Animal Sanctuary. We had heard so many great things and knew Liam, being the lover of animals he is, would love it. It was a bit chilly but we bundled up and had one of the best days!
The sanctuary has 720 acres for these rescued wild animals to roam freely. Animals include, tigers, bear, lions, mountain lions, foxes, and wolves. We are in this in between stage with the stroller…Liam mostly walks everywhere we go…but it is nice to carry around our stuff! When the animals first arrive, they are put into pens like this to be adapted and rehabilitated. Once stable they are intermingled with animals of their species. Gosh this kid!
At the end of the bridge there is a place where you can get drinks and snacks. On either side are open cages down below to observe Lions. A female Lion was roaring like crazy while we were in there and I love Liam’s expressions while he was imitating her.
This place is so wonderful! Such a neat experience and so refreshing to see these wild animals running and playing instead of miserably trapped in a small enclosure. Don’t get me wrong I love the zoo, but I highly recommend making this place a great day trip! Bring your binoculars and a zoom lens!!
