Wild Animal Sanctuary

On Saturday, we wanted to go to a few stores, but along the way we stopped at the Wild Animal Sanctuary.   They had more big cats and bears then we have ever seen there before, and it was still early enough in the day before it got really hot and so the animals were a little more active than usual....


When you first enter, you go up their wooden walk way that actually takes you up and over the big cat pens, so you can look down on the cats.....




Below you can see the walkway.  The Sanctuary said they are hoping to expand more so eventually they would have 3/4 mile of raised walkway like this.  That way you can go out and see the bears and other animals better. 

Do you see this white tiger sticking its tongue out?  I think it was sticking it out at Kevin....

 Many of the tigers were enjoying their water...



The lions...


How many lions can you count?

Do you see the tail?

 You know I LOVE the mountain lions....

They also have a pack of wolves and if you look out there, can you see a couple of bears?

 Some of the tigers were talking to each other through the fence....

It was a fun stop along the way, so different than a traditional zoo, and it is great to see the animals doing so well.
