A sanctuary where many animals died in a recent fire has no USDA license

Published 02/27/08

An animal sanctuary where nearly 100 animals died in a fire last month remains open despite not being licensed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, records show. A consent order filed Aug. 14, 2006, states that Safari Joe's Wildlife Ranch, also known as Safari Joe's Exotic Wildlife Rescue, owned by Joe Estes, has a history of violations, according to the USDA. An administrative law judge ruled that Estes had committed at least 39 violations of the federal Animal Welfare Act.
