  • I have always felt very conflicted when it comes to going to zoos and seeing these beautiful animals in these enclosed and depressing environments. Killman Zoo does NOT fit that profile. If you come here, to your surprise you will see dozens of wonderful animals that are actively moving/playing and actually look happy. Over the years, I have become a regular at this place and during that period, I have gotten to know the owners. When you hear their story, you will learn that this place started off as an animal rescue to save these animals from some of the horror stories you hear of at some of those bad zoos/unfriendly homes for such creatures. Over the years, it has grown and then grown some more into what is now the Killman Zoo. They have tigers, lions, leopards, monkeys, porcupines, emus, lemurs, wolves, a bear, owls, and soooo much more. All animals have decent sized enclosures and get the attention and space they need to live a happy life. Most importantly, they have loving owners that actually care for these animals like their own family. You can buy peanuts to feed some of the animals you may see at a petting zoo or if you are really adventurous you can witness feedings of the large cats on Sundays at 3pm (I think). I am now a father of 2 toddlers and love bringing the family here. You can generally cover the zoo in 1-2 hours and will certainly get your money's worth in that time. If you have not already done so, please go check it out. Regardless how you may think you feel about zoos, this place may actually change your mind...
  • I have visited the Zoo on a couple occasions. Each time was very enjoyable. The staff is incredibly polite, and extremely friendly. As mentioned by many people they have tried to make the Zoo feel as natural as possible, almost as if you are walking in a forest. Also, if you ever have a chance to bump into the owners they are great and more than willing to educate you and tell you stories about the animals and the zoo itself. I look forward to visiting in the near future.
  • The Killman zoo is a wonderful place. I've been coming here for 3 years now and wish I would have found this place sooner. The staff and volunteers are very friendly and dedicated at what they do. They always take the time to interact with the guests and, are always happy to answer any questions anyone has. between the owners, staff and volunteers the animals are very well cared for all year round, even in the freezing winters. They love the animals very much, and are always going above and beyond to make sure they are happy and well. There is no other way I'd rather spend a day, than at the Killman Zoo
  • I've been to the Killman Zoo a couple times and it saddens me to think there are people who would actually choose to write a bad review knowing how wonderful this place is. The staff is like family and you can tell they genuinely care about the animals. I would highly recommend this zoo for anyone who loves big cats and other types of exotic animals!
  • When you think of a terrible roadside zoo, the kind of awful ones that are unfortunately legal in Ontario the Killman Zoo is a good example. Basically a farm that has acquired exotic animals. Unlicensed, unaccredited, they do as they please facility with little oversight. Large cats stuck in chicken wire boxes along with small enclosures for all the other animals who have had the misfortune of ending up here for the rest of their lives. I can't think of a worse way to spend your money than coming here and giving it to these people to continue their exploitation of animals.
