Honey...Have You Seen My Right Arm?

This was today's front page story in The Buffalo News. The Wisniewski's from the town of Charlotte (16 miles South of Fredonia) have an animal sanctuary in their backyard. Kenneth Wisniewski works as a carnie and they live in what is described as a "run down house trailer". Get a good look at the Wisniewski's limbs as I have a feeling they will be missing some soon. They like to pet their lions, tigers, wolves, and bears through their makeshift dog cages and like to let the tigers lick their faces. Great idea.
Donna Fernandes of the Buffalo Zoo commented on this practice for the story,"We would not encourage our members to do that. Aside from the inherent danger, there are a number of diseases which can be transmitted from cats to humans." To say nothing about the possible diseases transmitted from hillbillies to cats.

Neighbors in this rural town are not concerned. They're just happy reporters aren't asking questions about what might be going on in their backyards.
