When entering the Courtland Center Mall in Burton, the last thing you’d expect to see is wildlife, but that’s exactly what you’ll see this weekend. 

G.W. Exotic Animal Park, of Oklahoma, have brought some of their furry friends to MidMichigan with the hope of spreading awareness and raising funds for their cause as the nation’s largest big cat rescue center. Visitors can help the cause by purchasing a stuffed toy tiger to take home, simply making a donation, or for the small price of $25 two people can spend time up close and personal with a real baby tiger or lion. 

In addition to the once in a lifetime chance to play and pet a tiger or lion, at 6pm each day there is a Vegas style magic show that contains an anti-drug and alcohol message. 

G.W. Exotic Animals will be at Courtland Center in Burton through this Sunday.
