  • We were now in the wildlife refuge. We knew not what we expected. When we arrived, we had a slight idea what will await us. We were greeted right friendly by the "operator". $12 per adult. It's not much if you look at what was being done. We came in and were first slightly shocked about the animals in their small enclosures. But then we have gone further. Each of these poor animals has his own sad story! The tears came to me sometimes. Two Panther owned by just gave you claws Florida let on the Forefeet. When he had more them don't feel like could they no longer be released reasonably. I wonder what are those people? Monkeys that people have managed to get then lost interest. 2 Tiger, of which there are only 4000 piece around the world live there, simply because either... She wanted for his show, the Tigers did not want them as he wanted to and were annoying and had to leave! Many animals were seized by the State and found a home there. Wolves, highly poisonous snakes, Zebra, camel, brown bear, white tiger, parrots, turtles, crocodiles, iguanas. 400 alligators, partially from alligator farms, people fed etc... all these animals can no longer back into nature. Meanwhile, people put there simply find their cats! I have great respect for the work there is done. Certainly not all of the finest quality and better it's always! But as well as if you primarily donate lives. All very sad! We will donate and come back. The operator has taken time and answered many questions. The most beautiful thing she said: they love what they do, but it is the sad animals need to live a life. To do this, you can only say: there are too many stupid people in this world who get such animals or maltreat them. Who wants to do something good should come aufjedenfall.
