KEENESBURG, Colo. (AP) - The Wild Animal Sanctuary northeast of Denver has increased fees for daily visitors from $15 to $50.

The 1-square-mile refuge in Keenesburg is home to 350 animals, including lions, tigers, bears and wolves. Many were rescued from abusive situations.

The sanctuary tells The Denver Post (https://dpo.st/1LSI18u) that the visitor fee increase is meant to encourage potential patrons to become long-term “supporters” of the facility. People who pay $200 over a 12-month period will be considered supporters, with no daily admission fee for them or their guests.

The carnivore rescue facility is about 40 miles northeast of Denver.
