Lions and tigers and bears. Oh my!

Sunday afternoon I rode the motorcycle to the Wild Animal Sanctuary that's north east of Denver International Airport. The sanctuary takes in large carnivores that have been rescued. Some have come from zoo's that were closed down, some were circus animals, and others were rescued from crazy people. The rescued animals are given medical attention and rehabilitated. When they are medically fit and have acclimated they are released into very large open habitats (about 3 acres). They are not kept in pens. Each of the confines has been conditioned to simulate the animals natural habitat. The lions, tigers, bears, and wolves each have their own habitats.

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer.



Bears will be bears.



It's sooo hot !



We've got pride.



I'm too sexy for my stripes.



It's a wool-if! It's a wool-if!
