Wildlife Sanctuary in Colorado

Lions and tigers and bears, oh yes.  Sunday we all went to the Wildlife Sanctuary in Keenesburg, Colorado.  It was wonderful.  We saw so many wild animals and none of them in small cages.  It was great—and safe.

This wildlife sanctuary provides homes and care for rescued wild animals.  They seem to have mostly lions, tigers,

bears, and wolfs.

But we also saw a camel and several llamas.

After arriving and paying the admission fee, we paid $15 per adult; we walked on the elevated walkway.  The walkway is about a mile long.  We looked down on the animals.  The animals have areas of several acres to roam.  With people above them the animals are not afraid, nor were we.  The animal areas have balls, water areas, structures the animals may climb and tunnels in the ground.

These animals have all been rescued from abusive situations.

The animals have never lived in the wild and they never will.  These formerly caged animals do not have the survival instincts of the wild animals.  This is their final home.

The Wildlife Sanctuary is a great place to visit and learn how the animals live and play.

This lion was one of 25 rescued from Bolivian zoos.  He is inside, but his door is open.  Shortly after this photo he went outside again.  Freedom he never knew before coming to the Wildlife Sanctuary.

This is a wonderful place for people and for animals that had been without hope before being rescued.  Please visit and tell all your friends.
