  Dehydrated Racoon
by adeleog

Planned to spend the day at the BC Wildlife Park just north of Kamloops to celebrate my daughters 3rd birthday.

It was SO BAD we left within twenty minutes - there were few animals - most of which were in very bad shape and none of the wonderful interactive experience as advertised in their flyer or on their site.

It appeared to us that the funding this park gets is all going into buildings for PEOPLE and not into animal welfare or compounds.

We actually felt ill leaving there and did not want our kids to see animals who were obviously dehyrated and not living in good conditions. Cannot believe somewhere like this was receiving funding from the city when something as wonderful and the heritage railway was not. A scandal!!
