Lions, and Tigers, and Bears

A couple of weeks ago we were visiting my family in Tulsa. We went on a bit of an adventure. Said adventure really needed pictures to describe, which is why this post is so late.

Now armed with the proper images I'd like to tell you about Safari's Sanctuary. Like a lot of things, it starts with stupidity. Apparently there are a number of people who think that a tiger or a bear would be a great pet. They're so cute when they are little. The problem comes when they grow up and start eating the neighborhood kids. Right about then the police get involved and the animal is taken away. Safari's is where those animals end up.

My family enjoys the zoo, so we decided to roll out to BFE and have a look. Safari's isn't exactly a state of the art facility. It's actually a plot of land in the back of a trailer park. It's obvious that they are trying to make some decent homes for these animals, but there are way more animals than there is room.

What they do have is an absurd number of meat eating predators caged by chain link fences. I'm sure you have all climbed chain link fences as children, so you are aware of the effect your little 60 pound ass had on such a fence. Now imagine a full grown tiger and the same fence. A little bit scary.

Now, just for kicks, we'll sell RAW CHICKEN to the visitors. That way they can feed the animals. Needless to say, the cats knew exactly which visitors were carrying the chicken. Here is a picture of a visitor feeding a male lion.



That's a 500 plus pound animal behind a chain link fence working to get some chicken. Try not to tease the man-eater.

This scene was repeated at a number of tiger and lion cages. They also had black leopards, bob cats, a pack of wolves, bears, monkeys, foxes, crocodiles, etc. The crown jewel of their collection was Napoleon's favorite animal, a liger. I'm pretty sure the fence is magic, because how else could it contain such a mythical beast.

Aye, I wonder what kind of a night's sleep you could get with all the animal noises.
