I would referto it moe like a zoo but better. You drive thru thru and you and the animals can come right up to the truck.  Most of the animals are big game types....elk, mule deer, whitetails, mountain goat, bighorn sheep, buffalo, wolves, mountain lions and of course bears.  Then they had babyland whwre are the bear cubs were at...it was a pretty need place.

That's pretty cool. Some cute little critters there.

The only problem I have with a place like that is the average public who doesn't know any better will think it's no problem to be right next to some "cute" bear cubs, or a mountain lion, etc.  They might get a rude awakening somewhere down the line.

Nice photos!  Thanks for sharing!

Yeah I bet some people will

Yeah I bet some people will think they can juts drive up to a bear in the wild and it will be ok.  Actually the mountan lions were the only ones that were actaully in a conatained area that you did not drive right thru their area.  The bear cubs are not with the adult bears, thay have what they call Baby Land it contain all the bear cubs and they have free rain over there.  There was one cub in there and he must have been the old timer in there...he was a pretty good bully and had 20 pounds or so an all other cubs...was kinda fun to watch the smalled cubs with little man syndrome try to take him.
