Posted October 08, 2018 09:31:51 A father-of-two has been left heartbroken after spending more than four years as a wildlife visitor at a ‘Wild Animal Sanctuary’ in Queensland.
Jack Kavanagh was one of six people who visited the sanctuary at Cairns in December last year and says the experience was not as fun as he had hoped.
“It was a bit strange, but I don’t think I was disappointed, because it was really good and I thought it was a good place to be,” he said.
Mr Kavanaghs son, Daniel, said he had been planning to go to the sanctuary for a year.
“We were looking for a place to get away for the summer and we wanted to do it at the end of the year so we had a couple of months,” he told ABC Radio Brisbane.
“I think the people at the centre are very nice people and they’re very open and they have a lot of really good wildlife.”
Mr Kavans son was among the people who went on a three-month safari in the wilderness on December 6 last year.
Mr Dannen is also an avid animal lover and was inspired to take the journey by the wildlife he had seen and heard about in the community.
“The wild animals were really interesting,” he explained.
“There were some wild dogs, they were not as big as the ones I was seeing, but they were big, they weren’t that big, and they were wild and that’s what I really liked about it.”
Mr Dancen said he was very excited to be back in Cairn after spending so much time away from home.
“You just kind of want to come back and have a few days and just go on the bush and have fun,” he added.
He said he loved the environment and the people there, and would continue to travel to other locations in the future. “
If you’re not doing something, then it’s not worth it.”

“This place was really nice and I wanted to come here,” he joked.
The Queensland Department of Environment and Heritage has confirmed that the sanctuary was shut down.
Mr Zephyr, a native of the state’s south-west, was among those who returned to Cairntes, and is now in a care home.
Mr Cairnton said the closure was a “difficult decision”.
“We would like to thank everyone for their patience and support during this difficult time,” he wrote on Facebook.
“Visitors from the surrounding area will be able to visit from Monday 15 October at 10:00am.” “
Cairnnies Department of Tourism and Cultural Resources said it was “shocked” by the decision and said it would provide assistance to visitors. “
