On a recent trip through Wellsboro, I took guests to visit Harrison Point and stopped at Animal Land on the way back. I had not visited Animal Land in perhaps 6 plus years. Time has not been kind to this zoo. Appears that owners have no sense of care for animals or environment; which ultimately impacts their business. Based on... More

I am shocked at the horrible conditions these animals are forced to live. The bears and the tiger especially they had very little room. We went out with feed and the animals seemed starved. The gift shop may be able to sell merch if it weren't for the smell of cat urine permeating the entire shop. I wouldn't let my... More

Upon entering the gift shop, all you can smell is cat urune. GROSS! I love cats but there were cats all over the gift shop. On the tables, in the clothes display. I picked up a T-shirt I was interested in but immediately threw it back because it smelt like cat piss. Again, GROSS. Everything smelt of it. Even the... More

On our way to the "grand canyon" we a family of 16, decided to stop and see the Zoo.. The animals were tromping around in watery feces, a bear is in a yard fence only and just laying there. The bear in the actual rusty falling apart cage was pacing and clawing our corn we threw into the cage to... More

Very sad, conditions of some of the animals were very poor, especially the monkeys. The Bear enclosure was the last straw and had me walking right to the exit. So sorry that I gave these people my money!

The first thing you notice to walking into the gift shop/store is the overwhelming scent of cat urine. The animals all were in too-small exhibits, and did not seem happy. The wallaby had no shade, the bears had no room to play or even take a bath, the alpacas had matted down fur and looked as if they needed baths,... More

Keeo driving by. The canyon is the best attraction. I feel bad for the animals, they deserve better. Smelly,dirty, rude staff, and the feeling of needing a shower if you visit this place!

If those three things are something you're interested, then feel free to stop. Otherwise: KEEP DRIVING. We were on our way to the PA Grand Canyon and saw these "rustic" signs. As a biologist, I am always excited for any zoo: large or small. Before we crossed the road, we could smell urine. At first, my husband said "Oh, it's... More

Was not impressed with this zoo. Was not maintained very well, areas in the zoo were run down and in bad shape and some animals looked unkept and not healthy to say the least. Reminded me of something out of a Stephen King novel.

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
