Animal Adventures in North Carolina, by Jennifer Bean Bower:
Weekend and day trips are always fun. Combine them with attractions that allow the viewing, touching, and feeding of animals and such excursions suddenly become adventures. If you have ever dreamed of feeding reindeer, listening to the howls of a New Guinea singing dog, trekking through the mountains beside a llama, or seeing your first Siberian chipmunk, then Animal Adventures in North Carolina is the guidebook for you—and you won’t even need a passport.
Throughout North Carolina, facilities dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and conservation of various animal species abound. Some of the fun to be found in Animal Adventures in North Carolina:
• Visit a wolf sanctuary in Bakersville where you can pet Cherokee White Rose, an Arctic wolf
• Get an up-close view of Radar and Lil Wayne, two ligers (a hybrid cross between a tiger and a lion) at Tiger World in Rockwell
• Meet Igor, a Brahma bull that travels the Eastern Seaboard attending fairs and agricultural events, at Sunny Slopes Farm in Asheboro
