Colleen, Cindy, Matt, Ryan and I went to the Wild Animal Sanctuary today to see what was out there. This is a place that takes in endangered and captive predators for rehabilitation, and then provides a permanent home for them for the rest of their lives. It’s a large operation with over 700 acres of land, and quite a bit more donated land waiting in the wings. We got there a little too late to see most of the cats (about 11am, since we missed the turnoff from hiway 76). And a heads up to everybody driving up there: Although their address says Keenesburg, they’re much closer to Hudson..
It’s a pretty neat place, but I’d recommend either very first thing in the AM or at dusk. It was a little too hot out there and the big cats were pretty lethargic. I still got a couple decent pix though.
