You know this sounds an awful lot like a re-packaging of the horrible Charlotte Metro Zoo. You can do a google search on it but they were notorious for how badly they treated their animals. I could be wrong but it would be worth knowing.

Article on it.

Edit: Ahh I was right: See this.

Im still going to go check it out a warm December weekend white Bengals are my favrite species; they are so beautiful ImO.

The same could be said about Lazy 5 Ranch (I love its concept) The constant humans feeding the animals got to effect the animals in some format

The old owner is gone as should be. He was a hack. I am aware of the state being very involved in making sure they follow proper procedure. Who knows it might have turned around.

I know a boy scout troop from Salisbury did an Eagle Scout project at Tiger World recently. That does not say anything about their treatment of animals however...

Yes, my daughter went there on a school trip, she loved it but she is only 7 I believe if you pay $100 you get a certain about of time holding the cubs. If you can swing that then I think it would be a very fun place, without that, I am not sure if I would really bother.....
