There is a great place in Charlestown, IN (just outside of Louisville) called Wildlife in Need. The owner takes in wild animals and has a deep love for these animals. Periodically he hosts sessions for people to get up close and personal with the animals. These are wild animals that you would need have thought you could play with, like tigers, lions and sloths. During these interactive sessions you get to learn about the animals, ask questions and play with them. They encourage you to interact with them and have handlers there to make sure everyone is safe. Afterwards, you are able to get individual pictures with the animals. Not only are you able to interact with them in these sessions, but they have some tigers and lions to view, similar to a zoo, but they are more available. We have been there 3 times and every session has been different. We love going up there to visit with them and see these beautiful animals.
