No one is safe from these tough economic times, and that includes central Kentucky's wildlife refuge, Wolf Run, which is in desperate need of funds to keep taking care of their animals.
Wolf Run, which is located in Jessamine County, is dedicated to helping rescue and take care of all types of wildlife, most notably large cats like cougars, wolves and coyotes. They give these animals homes and a new life, but all that could now be in danger because the operator says their funds are running low.
Wolf Run is a non-profit organization that relies on volunteers, members and other donations to take care of the animals and educate. They say if they don't get more funds they may be forced to relocate their big cats. They say this will not only be tough for the animals, but all those who come to see them at the refuge.
"My biggest concern is of course for the well being of our animals," said operator Mary Kindred. "But I really hate to lose the gift that we are able to give some of the people that cannot afford to go to (the) Louisville or (Cincinnati) zoos."
