Trip Report Bear cubs at Wild Animal Sanctuary

Jump to last reply

Baby animals are rarely seen at the Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg, CO outside of Denver. The indiscriminate breeding of captive animals is one reason there is a problem. The Sanctuary neuters its animals. But a few months ago it rescued 18 bears from a Georgia 'zoo'. Two were pregnant and gave birth recently.

We saw 3 of the cubs today. Darn, but they are cute! It will be interesting seeing them grow in the next couple of years.

The sanctuary also has lions, tigers, wolves and other animals. There are so many of them that if one group is just lying around (as the lions and tigers were when I arrived), another group probably will be active.

Today all the bears were very active as we're the wolves. Half of the tiger and lion groups were active.

This is one of our favorite places to visit, well worth the short drive from Denver.
