After seeing a photo of a set of tiger triplets, I was compelled to visit the DEW Animal Kingdom in Mt. Vernon, Maine. I enjoyed the journey, and was not disappointed. Right now there are many baby animals on display besides the tiger trio. There are baby goats, alpacas, ducklings and even porcupines.
DEW is a rustic, 30-year old, family run working farm/zoo. Bob Miner started with traditional farm animals and started rescuing exotic cats. DEW has grown to cover 42 acres and houses over 200 animals. Some come from zoos, others from individuals who got in over their heads with exotic pets.
I was able to see the owner, Bob Miner, interact with the wolves and lioness. He and his wife Julie have caring relationships with each of the animals at DEW. Each animal has a name, and personality! It would make for a memorable family-friendly activity if you’re in the area. Visit: www.dewanimalkingdom.com for more information.
