HARPURSVILLE, N.Y. (CBS4) – Jordan Patch, the owner of the Animal Adventure Park, gave a live tour of the rain-soaked grounds Friday morning.

He showed the progress of several projects they have in the works ahead of the May 13 opening, including stopping in to check in on some of our favorite animals.

April, Oliver, and baby Tajiri all appear to be doing well in the rain, staying warm inside the giraffe barn.

Other animals were staying indoors, too, trying to keep warm, although some were more adventurous – like Zuri the hyena coming out for a belly rub in the mud, howling and smiling in delight.

Occasionally the signal cuts out, and Patch’s phone battery ran low toward the end, but it’s worth watching the full video. As of this writing, more than 200,000 people have viewed the live tour, with thousands commenting, sharing, and liking the post.

  1. Thanks for the tour, soggy as it was. I enjoyed it immensely. Hope to see another tour such as this in the future. I’m 72 and in a wheelchair so I won’t be able to come see your new park but this was great.

  2. I wish I could come with my family to your park. Your park look great . I will try to visit via computer tours. I am very appreciative of all the work you have done. Do you think LA ZOO would ever go into a partnership with you. I live in Los Angeles California

    Thanks so much for the tour. I can’t wait to see it in person this summer. I had no idea that you have such a variety of animals. They all look so sweet and healthy. Thanks for all you and your crew do for the animals. God loves those who love and care for His creations.
