Gas Station Petting Zoo

Please do not advertise this like a fun family attraction. Camels, zebras, and peacocks belong in the wild, not in a small cage in the middle of Utah to be looked at. This isn't fun and it's not cute; it's disgusting, blatant animal abuse and should be reported and not on any websites like this.

Our four kids ages 7-16 thought this was fun. The caretaker gave us pellets and we were able to feed alpacas, sheep, and even a camel!
