SANTA’S VILLAGE CALIFORNIA

Hungry little kids find some true friends among the visitors.

— This kind of animal feeding was not common, but still practiced in some of the small amusement parks around the country. With time, the costs of maintaining a live animal exhibit which was accessible to the visitors like this became too high, both in the requirements of the animals and the cost of potential liability.
