A visit to Black Pine Animal Sanctuary

There's a bear behind you! No, seriously!





I haven't been to Black Pine Animal Sanctuary since they moved to their present location, just a few miles outside of Albion in the Noble County 4H Park. They used to be by the cemetery on the west edge of town, and when the lion there roared, it sounded like he was right outside my back window. (That particular beast passed away, and can now be seen at the Noble County Public Library's main branch.) No alarm clock could beat that.

It was humid and around 87 degrees when Emily and I arrived, but at least we weren't covered in fur.
