Sloane, Rowan and I met our friends Tamlyn, Cooper and Colton at Bush Wildlife Sanctuary this morning. None of us had ever been there but we heard good things and since number one it was free and number two we had nothing else to do we went.
If I can use a bit of Internet slang for a minute OMG was it fun. It is a small sanctuary that takes in injured animals. It releases everyone of them it can but the ones that are too domestic or disabled stay there for us to enjoy.
The kids had so much fun watching the deer eat breakfast, hearing the turkeys gobble, seeing "Digger" the tunneling owl and Sloane even got to touch a snake (Rowan wanted no part of it). The kids got to see bobcats, panthers and bears up close and personal. A docent was walking around the park with different animals to educate the kids and told us that their larger animals were actually confiscated from peoples homes were they were kept as domestic pets. Ummm....yeah. I can barely handle a dog.
