If you’ve been putting off making a trip to Zoo Idaho, June 11 is your best chance. That Saturday, the zoo is inviting the public to experience the more than 100 animals and 30 exhibits free of charge. “We’re extremely proud of the animals and our efforts at Zoo Idaho,” said Peter Pruett, Zoo Superintendent. “We want everyone to stop in and see what we’ve been telling everyone who will listen about. How often can you get within inches of a grizzly bear or within feet of a mountain lion?” The zoo features large animals such as bears, bison, mountain lion, deer, and elk as well as smaller animals like raccoons, fox, and badgers. It also houses birds like eagles, falcons, and turkeys. Zoo Idaho is an indigenous species zoo, housing numerous orphaned or injured animals from the region who would have likely not survived in the wild.
