Call of the Wild

On Sunday, I visited the Global Wildlife


Center near Robert, Louisiana. Here are


some of the many animals awaiting us!


We rode on an open wagon train, and were


able to feed the animals along the way.


These are fallow deer, which they nickname


"follow deer" because they tend to follow the


wagon all the way through the park!





One of the large African antelopes...beautiful





The black one is a "beefalo" and the longhorn
is a breed from Africa as well.






This is a black buck antelope, the dominant

male in the group...very arrogant!









Hannah feeding the bison...

















Pete feeding him, too!!












Unfortunately, this is as close as we got to


the giraffes! maybe next time...


They do offer private tours in a smaller vehicle,


and they said you will see all of the animals


during those tours because they can go


everywhere.




The park is open 7 days a week, and the wagon


tours are every hour or so. You can check them


out on the web, and find more info. It would be a


fun trip for children; the ones there really loved


getting to feed the animals. fun, fun...
