Flora and Fauna
The Birds of Prey exhibit is where I got to hold the owl. The gentleman who runs it saves birds that have been injured in the wild and cannot return. He supports this activity by exhibiting the birds and instructing the public at a shopping center in Argyle.
This is Hamish. He is a bull like none you have ever met. He comes when called, loves the shoppers who visit the center near where he lives and will eat out of your hand. There is only one warning sign on the fence he could easily walk through but never does. "Do not touch my horns. I don't like it."
Hamish will allow you to pet his nose and stroke his side, but if you touch his horn, he will toss his head. He's not mean, but with a rack like this, having him toss it in your direction could be hazardous to your health.
