A Colorado Springs woman is being chastised by Colorado Parks and Wildlife for placing an injured bobcat in her vehicle with her child.

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo- Animals, Giving Back, and Exercise

May 27th, 2017

All that training I did paid off last weekend. I completed my race in Colorado Springs at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. It was a great experience.

The course was on a nice road that usually does not allow foot traffic. This is the only race that the zoo allows foot traffic to the shrine. Even though you will not be able to walk to the shrine this year you can still visit the zoo and take the gondola up to the... Read More

As wolves are not native to Colombia, the zoo suspects he was the victim of the tragic illegal wildlife trade (a billion dollar industry that spans the entire world). Due to the zoo’s lack of resources and experience... Read More
