jumanji leopard zoo circus

Wildcat Walkabout was a HUGE Success!

I want to purr-sonally thank everyone who participated in this epic event; the patrons, the vendors, the staff, volunteers and all of their family members, who made this such a fun and prosperous event.  I was a little worried at 11 am when I saw the line of people to get in that stretched about 1/8th of a mile down Easy Street, but the good news was the over 300 of them managed to be admitted in under 30 minutes.  People who came a little later didn’t have to wait at all.

If you missed the love – fest at Big Cat Rescue yesterday, be sure to get your Lion Ark tickets now, because we will all be there to have some great food and watch a heart warming movie about how circus lions were freed.  There will be a special viewing of Hoover Tiger’s rescue at the end too!
