Bearizona is still relatively new, originating in August 2009, when the Casey’s purchased 160 acres right outside of Williams and began constructing the wildlife park. The park greeted its first visitors in May 2010 and it has been growing ever since.
While there, we enjoyed the Raptor show. During these shows, you come face to face with hawks, owls, falcons and other raptors.
In fact, they fly right about 3 inches above your head. (Not a show for those afraid of birds).
We do recommend the show as it was incredibly informative and it was amazing to get so close to these beautiful birds.
This wolf and I were about 10 feet apart. He said hi.
Well, at least I think that is what he was saying…
Half of the animals at Bearizona are rescues, and half were obtained from other parks. The animals seem happy and well cared for, and many live a much longer life than they would in the wild.
We plan on revisiting Bearizona again very soon. Possibly with our girls who will be coming up to visit at the end of the month. It was an amazing experience!
