"This is her first day out," Winkler said of the 9-month-old serval, a large spotted cat normally found in Africa and Asia. Patagonian cavies, emus, muntjacs, wallabies and peacocks lounged in nearby fields and pens, enjoying the view from the Mountainview Mini Animal Zoo. It started with a calf and a pair of goats that people passing by would see and stop to pet. The menagerie of John and Myla Winkler has since grown to 40 species from the domestic to the exotic.

email@example.com WAYNESBORO, PA. - Someday, people will walk with dry feet through Happel's Meadow to see the flora and fauna that live in the wetland. Maybe, they'll even spot a bobcat. Washington Township officials, at a real estate closing Thursday, paid $160,000 for a run-down house and five acres of dry land abutting Happel's Meadow. Pa. 16 dissects the wetland. About 47 acres lie on the north side and 23 on the south. The property closed on Thursday gives access to the south side, said Jerry Zeigler, township code enforcement officer.
