Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg
Jenny Harding, For TSM

The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg, CO is not a zoo. It is so much more. It is the world’s largest carnivore sanctuary - with more than 450 rescued lions, tigers, bears, wolves and other large carnivores living and roaming freely on 720 acres.

My wife and I had the privilege of visiting the Sanctuary over the weekend. It's open to the public year-round. You can take a walk on the longest footbridge in the world. It is 1.5 miles long. It is also high above the Animal Sanctuary's residents so they are not stressed by any of the visitors.
