Bears are just one of the carnivores that can be found roaming the Colorado plains at the Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg.
The sanctuary has a new raised walkway to help visitors get a better look at the animals. It’s almost 5,000 feet long and gives visitors a view of the large predators which have been rescued from illegal or abusive situations.
“You’re not going to see any other place in the country that utilizes large acreage habitats like this,” Katie Vandegrift with the Wild Animal Sanctuary said. “When you come and visit you get to see prides of lions roaming freely together; you get to see a pack of wolves; you get to see bears playing.”
More than 100,000 people visited the sanctuary last year. Donations covered the cost of the new walkway.
