Name : The Hearst Garden of Comparative Zoology

Current habitat : Californian wild coast

“William Randolph Hearst created the largest private zoo in the world on his ranch at San Simeon. Traveling the winding ranch road to Hearst Castle guests passed through fenced fields populated with many species of exotic wild animals freely roaming over the hillsides as though they were native to this land. It was an amazing sight. The ever-changing collection of animals was established in 1923 when American bison, Rocky Mountain elk, and European white fallow deer were acquired.”

Diet : All it can get

“Experts are calling it the largest animal rescue operation in history. When Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, Louisiana, the city’s human residents weren’t the only ones trying to cope with flooded and devastated homes. More than 250,000 pets — from cats and dogs to parrots and fish — were left stranded by the storm’s destruction. Owners, expecting to return a few days later, left food and water for their pets. But days turned into weeks, and pets had to struggle to survive without supplies or the love and care of their owners.”

“There are over 2,000 chimpanzees found in a variety of facilities across the United States. In fact, in addition to their housing in accredited zoological parks, chimpanzees are one of the only exotic animals found in biomedical laboratories, sanctuaries and unaccredited animal parks in addition to being owned as pets and performers for television, movies and advertisements.”
