In 1983 Tippi Hendren established the Shambala Preserve in California’s Mojave Desert, a wildlife sanctuary for lions and tigers. This lions name is Togar. He was brought to the sanctuary but had never been around any other lions. He had to live with humans or be put down. This family took him in and loved him and he never hurt anyone.
Ducks are very very hardy. Much easier to raise and tend than chickens. Very disease resistant and very self sufficient. Once old enough to scavenger buggies, shoots, water plants and algae they require minimal pellet supplements.
