Review for PrideRock Wildlife Refuge, Terrell, TX, USA
PrideRock is an amazing place where lions, tigers, mountain lions, bears and a hyena now call their forever home. I was fortunate to get to see this wonderful place up close when I attended an animal related workshop being held there. Many of these animals were used by humans to make a profit or kept as an exotic pet by people who didn't know how to care for them properly. Many of them have very sad, tragic stories. These animals should never have been taken out of the wild to begin with. Since they can not be released, having no knowledge of how to hunt for food, sanctuaries like this are a must. The love that I felt the day I was there from both the animals and the caregivers was amazing. These animals are well cared for and lead enriching lives. There wasn't the pacing etc you often see in zoos. The atmosphere was different. I heard noises coming from the cats and saw behaviors one never sees when they are held in captivity on display for humans. It is a beautiful place and deserves as much support as they can get, so they can build better bigger enclosures and feed all these wonderful critters who have been fortunate enough to come and live here.
