As Wild As They Can Be
Out on the high plains of Eastern Colorado, something truly wild and wonderful is happening. There, on 720 acres, 450 exotic animals have found a place that they can call home. Rescued from abandoned zoos, failed circuses, private homes and deplorable roadside attractions, they have survived against incredible odds.
In this series, host Stephanie Arne takes us inside The Wild Animal Sanctuary to see the remarkable story of this amazing refuge. Watch as Stephanie goes behind the scenes with the Sanctuary’s extraordinary staff to learn what it takes to keep hundreds of bears and big cats healthy, happy, and safe.
In 1985, The Wild Animal Sanctuary’s visionary founder and director Pat Craig worked on one of the original Wild Kingdom episodes. Stephanie sat down with Pat to talk about his experience.
