The Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Park Responds to Doctored PeTA Video from 2006

USDA Clears The Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Park

There have been a lot of questions and accusation since 2006 regarding a doctored PeTA video claiming that our park and staff abuse our animals. This video has recently been blasted throughout the internet by a facility in Tampa, Florida that is also claiming we abuse our animals. Not only does this anger us, but it saddens us to think that anyone would think we would commit such atrocities.

The Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Park was founded to protect and care for exotic animals that were found in abusive and dire situations, or were just no longer wanted by their owners. Some we have taken in from other facilities that could no longer afford to care for them.


The former owner of an exotic animal park in Wynnewood says his park has been cleared of wrongdoing, despite the claims of PeTA. The USDA conducted a surprise visit at The Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Park this week.

Hear PeTA's very own Bruce Friedrich support blowing things up. Just as they asked Timothy McVeigh in the OKC bombing to be a vegan for his last meal. (What if your loved ones was in one of these buildings?)
