Open up and say “aaahhhh”

Open up and say “aaahhhhh”

I am home again. I do love traveling to new places and seeing great things, photographing them is always a bonus. Returning to Bear Woods and Evelyn and “the girls” is unbeatable though.

Now that I can sit and have a decent internet connection, let me tell you a little more about the Wisconsin Big Cat Rescue and Education Center. It was started a little over 10 years ago by a couple who wanted to do something about the animals that were legally in roadside zoos, backyard breeding programs and were no longer needed by zoos. In some states it is legal to have a big cats in small cages as a roadside zoo. They often breed the cats because people want to see babies. They currently can have 35 cats there and are looking at adding some land and more enclosures for more rescues. They turn down about 50 cats a year now. Each enclosure is about 30×40 or so. They are good people trying to make a difference.
