Front entry and gift shop to this roadside zoo smells of cat urine. The two bears that they have are kept in horrible enclosure; too small, cement floor, rusted iron bars and water tubs too small for animals to get into and cool off. Cruel confinement. Bears pace continuously out of complete boredom. Enclosure in full sun. Tiger in too... More

Visited on July 15, 2014. I echo many of the other reviews. Cats everywhere along with an extremely strong cat pee smell-especially in the 'gift shop'. The owner was nice but the place is poorly kept. The animals and facility need help. I thought several of the cages were too cramped (bears, tiger, fox, kangaroo to name a few). It... More

I was born in Wellsboro. Was raised 30 miles north of Wellsboro. I visited Animal Land many times as a child. I have not lived in Tioga county for some 26 years now. I visited Animal Land in 2000 and it was as I remembered it. I now live in Florida and visited Animal Land on July 9, 2014, while... More

We've been visiting the Wellsboro area and the Grand Canyon since 1971. Animalland was our favorite place to take the kids. We've been back a few times recently with the grand children and it''s not as enjoyable as years ago. Might be us, maybe we're too familiar with it! Ity's definitely worth a visit.

The minute we stepped on the porch the gift shop smelled "animal"! The paths are definitely not handicap but easy to trip or slip on. Path out in the woods made you keep an eye out for rattlers. I was shocked at the condition of the animal quarters. The place was filthy dirty! Disgusting! The poor Bears did not have... More

I took my sons there many times as they were growing up(15 years ago)and it was fun, however today the smell of urine in the gift shop was over powering! Many animals missing and I was embarrassed that I subjected my friend to the smell.

I felt so bad for all the animals here. They look sad, hungry, dry and unhealthy. Their enclosures did not have enough natural habitat to keep them happy. The poor bears have such small cages, and nothing to do. My boyfriend asked the guy about the horse's hair that was missing. He said they lose their hair this time of... More

This place is totally disgusting in the way these poor animals are kept. The animal welfare people should shut this place down. The whole thing is filthy dirty, with the bears in tiny cages, tiger in a tiny cage. Depressing & heartbreaking to see. This is animal cruelty completely, so these people can make dollars. The other reviews are correct,... More
