In 1994 a timber wolf attacked a child and ripped off his right arm, prompting other Wisconsin zoos to review their own safety. In 2007, two cougars were released from their cages at the zoo by unknown vandals. In 2010, a woman had two fingers bitten off after she ignored barriers to try to feed an Asiatic black bear.

A very nice place to go with very young kids, because it is small but has beautiful landscaping and well taken care of animals.
Was fun watching the Nina's getting feed. Yhe Buffalo were very responsive also.
