Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary has been providing a nurturing space to non-releasable wildlife for 30 years.
Lucky for animals that have either been abandoned or are disabled, they have a safe and nurturing space to live out the rest of their lives in Red Lodge. Equally as fortunate are the visitors who get to view animals they might not see otherwise.
Through October, guests can visit wildlife like bears, bison, wolves and raccoons from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, except Tuesday. Starting in November, days open are exclusively Saturday and Sunday with the same hours. Walk-ins are welcome.
Admission is just $9 for adults, $4 for kids 12 and under, and $6 for seniors and military. At an additional charge, private tours and animal encounters are available. Call ahead for an appointment.
“All of (the animals) are just definitely worth the trip to see,” said Sue Glock, administrative finance coordinator.
Visit the sanctuary at 615 2nd St. E. or call (406) 446-1133 for more information.
