In Springwater Provincial Park near Barrie, Ontario, there's a modest little wildlife compound (zoo) with a small, ad hoc collection of native wild animals.

That means the animals have to be moved elsewhere.
This was great news as the zoo is outdated and inadequate, and best of all, homes with better conditions Read More

Even in death, it's hard to miss Tatiana. She now graces the front entrance of the zoo.
