  • Iv never been there but i watch their reality show... They give all they have to these animals & it may not be a "state of the art facility" but the animals do have what they need with no frills, but seem happy! im so grateful for Carrie... She always has the smartest ideas while keeping trauma out of it. Bud sometimes is too rough, shoving the baby hippo out of his transport cage w his boots... Thank god she put a stop to that! The baby hippo was scared. Its very young too, it should still be with its mom! Animals need time, and Bud doesnt have the patience it all! So hopefully as a team they can pull it off for the sake of all those animals!!!
  • The owner is one of the kindest, most wonderful people I have met on my job. He let me pet a 1 year old kanagoo and come near a spotted hyena. The zoo isnt open this time of year but he still let me see these amazing animals. Highly recommended.
