I’m not a great photographer of anything, what to say of animals, who would typically move and try to hide…
So I sort of need friendly animals that will ‘pose’ to me.
The travel that I did that provided me with friendly animals the best was in 2003, when we went to the Olympic Peninsula, WA, and visited the Olympic Game Farm, in Sequim.
In this Game Farm, the animals are either at loose or on very small fences, and you drive by with your car.
You can also buy bread at the entrance and offer to the animals.
And THAT’S what make the animals so friendly. They always come for bread!
Here are the pictures and some of the stories from that trip.
Hey there, do you have some bread?
Zebras prefer grass. At least she was quiet…
The Yak came inside for some bread. After his nice visit my car had Yak drool all over
Grizzly. This was the funniest. There were fenced, so could not get too close. Then, he would ask for bread doing a beak with his mouth and then…
… politelly thank you with a wave of his paw!
Bambi was not interested on us 😦
Buffalos made my father-in-law freack out. He was screaming like crazy for us to close the windows. But the buffalo couldn’t care less about us…
The white deert was scary. If they saw us stopping for a peakc at the distance, they’d start running like crazy and get inside (or bump his nose at the window, if we managed to close it in time) asking for bread. Almost attacking us. Crazy ones!
Elks were fenced too. This one looked at us, but he was also not interested on bread.
