When you head over to the Great Plains Zoo at 805 South Kiwanis Avenue, for the 2nd Annual "Hug-A-Bunny" celebration, you and your kids will see and experience a lot more than bunnies! In fact, there will even be two egg hunts!

Tomorrow, (Saturday, April 16, 2022), beginning at 10 AM and going until 4:30 the Hug-A-Bunny event will have you "hip-hopping" from one activity to another. This event is open to everyone, whether you're a member or not.

The schedule of events will keep you and your "littles" so busy, that it might even be a little "hare-raising"!

South Dakota's Weird Exotic Animal Laws Are Amazing

Have an interesting pet or looking to get one? Check this out from South Dakota Exotic Animal Laws before you go trying to adopt one.

You will need a zoo permit to harbor a raccoon dog. That's a real species. It's a small wild dog with a black facial mask and long fur, native to the forests of Asia.
