Strafford, Missouri - Exotic Animal Paradise

Exotic Animal Paradise closed on October 1st and all the animals were auctioned off on October 13th. No cameras or video were allowed, so news reports consisted of stock footage of animals and one lone Missouri official stating that he was there to make sure purchasers were legally entitled to possess exotic animals. The property had already been sold off before the auction to a land developer and will become a golf course and housing tract. Once again something interesting has been removed and replaced by something tedious.

[Rudy Mack, 10/15/2006]

April 2007: Contrary to this glum assessment, Exotic Animal Paradise has been reopened under new management as Animal Paradise Family Fun Park. The only golf course is miniature.
