Santa’s Land in Putney, Vermont has gained a bad reputation over the years. According to the Brattleboro Reformer, a new animal loving expert is interested in purchasing the park that has notoriously treated its animals poorly in past years. But she says she isn’t focused on keeping the Santa theme alive.
C.S Wurzberger of Marlboro plans on turning the park into a “Rare Breeds Zoological Park”. Her vision is to construct a facility that hosts endangered animals native to the U.S. She hopes to expose kids and adults to all different types of native rare animals that you might not see at a traditional zoo.
At Thursday night’s select board meeting at the Putney town hall she will give a Powerpoint presentation to show the community her vision of a new Santa’s Land.
Previously, Wurzberger had run petting zoos, worked closely with the USDA, and is a trained animal rehabilitator. She also has a masters certificate in sustainable innovation from the University of Vermont. She is hoping to raise just over $500,000 in order to purchase land permits and start a major cleanup process.
If you would like to donate you can visit her crowd funding website at http://www.IndieGogo.com and search “Join Us In Building a Rare Breeds Zoological Park”. She hopes to open the new park in the Spring of 2017.
