The Unique Park Everyone In Illinois Should Visit At Least Once

Illinois is famous for two of its large zoos, the Lincoln Park Zoo and the Brookfield Zoo. There are loads of great animals at those places. But there is an animal sanctuary that is at neither of these places. In Lockport, Illinois, there is a sanctuary for North American animals, mainly wolves. Many people don’t know that Big Run Wolf Ranch exists, even though it has been in existence for 30 years. The animals here were brought when the only other option was euthanasia. Now, this place is dedicated to not only letting people see these animals, but also educating visitors. Here’s a glimpse of what you will see.
