Camp ESCAPE took a journey to T&D’s Cats of the World in Penns Creek on Tuesday, getting a rare look at wild animals. “It was so neat to see their reactions when the monkey and bears climbed the fences for their attention,” said intramural assistant Jeremy R. Bottorf, who also provided the photos. “The campers were lucky to have such nice weather, as the animals were out and about enjoying the beautiful summer day.  The students saw turkeys, monkeys, lions, tigers, and bears… Oh, my!” The campers were even fortunate enough to feed some deer and a few emus, he added.
