Don't miss parts 1 & 2 (previous posts).

On Sunday we celebrated my Step-Dad’s birthday by going to The Maine Wildlife Animal Park in Gray, ME. The last time I was there my boys were very young and it was called The Gray Game Farm. We had a great time. Well, everyone except for Cody (my parent’s new Cocker-Golden), who had to wait in the car.

The Wildlife Park was awesome! We got a web-coupon for $1 off so it only cost us $5 each for entrance. There were a ton of friendly little chipmunks running about and they were so tame. We saw the following creatures: Deer, Moose, Linx, Albino Porcupine, Black Bear, Coyote, Fischer, Fox, Racoon, Owls, Turkey Vultures, Mt. Lions, Bob Cats, and more!

A few interesting things happened while I was taking photos. I climbed over the fences (my bad!) to take closer pics and I was no more than 4 feet from the gigantic bullmoose. Good thing there was a fence between us! The fawn decided to try to mate. Wild Turkeys came in from behind the fence and I proceeded to chase them down for a photo shoot. The Bald Eagle was molting so it wasn’t ready for a glamour shot. And the pungant odor from the small wildlife cages sent me running! I also managed to get a lot more fence in the pics than the animals on quite a few of them so it ruined the photos. 😦
