A zoo is the first place most people would go to see a leopard, whereas the second place would be the chainlink enclosure in Donald Sutherland's backyard. Steer clear of Donald Sutherland with this Groupon.

Caged enclosures house endangered species such as lions and white Bengal tigers, and primates such as lemurs and spider monkeys cling to trees for visitors to see.
DEW Animal Kingdom & Sanctuary
The 4-year-old lion Mufasa roams his cage, purring between bites of raw meat, as his sister, Tawana, roars behind him. Mufasa, dubbed “Maine’s Little Lion King” by DEW Animal Kingdom and Sanctuary’s caretakers Bob and Julie Miner, may be the nonprofit sanctuary’s most visible inhabitant, but he’s far from its only attraction. Across 42 acres of land, the roars and deep purrs of big cats mix with the quacks of ducks and the snorts of pigs. Owners tend to gibbons, spider monkeys, and lemurs as they swing from trees inside a primate enclosure. Meanwhile, orphaned and injured native-Maine animals such as owls are sequestered for rehabilitation before being released back into the wild or signed for exclusive Tootsie Pops endorsements.
Definitely worth the money, travel, and experience!mumsince2007, TripAdvisor, 5/24/12
As you walk through the trail you feel like you have entered into another world entirely. The animals are so close and very well cared for.Brandi, Yahoo! Local, 9/29/11
