DEADWOOD, S.D. (AP) - A Minnesota woman who in recent months opened a wildlife education center that houses wolf cubs and fox kits in Deadwood is selling its business property in the town.

Owner Terri Petter tells the Black Hills Pioneer ( ) that Fur-Ever Wild has decided to sell its Deadwood location because of changes in rules and regulations from the city and the state.

The South Dakota Animal Industry Board has blocked Petter from allowing the public to pet the animals. An ordinance recently passed in Deadwood has stopped Fur-Ever Wild from increasing the number of housed animals.

Petter says the ordinance would block growth for the business. Some opponents of the facility have worked against it at the state and local level.
