For sale: Baby tigers, wolves and pygmy goats
BASTROP (API \ Texas wildlife park has found plenty of takers uttei offering to sell baby animals
Ibis is a roadside zoo, and we ye just got alt the tug animals yye eau bandit* right now We've bt rn selling our babies for the past couple of mouths.'' said owner Ted Wenk of the Wild World Mutual Park on Texas Highway VI near Bastrop
According to an advertisement iii state newspapers, the park which breeds and sells wild animals, “will take anything ot
•We've got four tigers all J weeks old. three leopards. I weeks old four monkeys wtio range in age from 8 months to to years; two ternate hybrid wolves. ♦» weeks old; and a few baby pygmy goats Kverythmg else we had for sale has already been sold We’ve sold all our baby lions ”
'The talking parrots and pythons also are gone
Nothing on the lot sells for more than $2,(MMI
You can buy a tiger for $2 (MMI or less You can Dux a leopard (or $F8(M» or less Lions are the cheapest because they breed like housecats It seems like there s a glut on lions now I’ve sold lions for as cheap as $:«m>, and I think the most I ve ever gotten is atiout $F2uo,” Wenk said.
Wolf cutis go for $500. monkeys for $500, the talking parrots for
$ DO. and Hic pythons for as cheap as $150
“A lot of our good customers wait.” Wenk said “We have a Ira boon that s pregnant now. and we’ve got three people who want .istiatiy ”
Ile tries to place the animals tie sells with other trainers and other breeders. Wenk said Other zoos seldom buy his animals, since most try to breed their own, he said
And. some are tiought by wealthy individuals who just want them for their own pleasure,” he added
For someone to buy a baby lion or tiger tor a pet is a bit foolish and dangerous, because someday it s going to grow up into a for (Hidable animal But people still buy them.” Wenk said
Anyone can buy the animals, but most municipalities won t allow exotic pets within city limits, and they require special and expensive care, added Stanley Davidoff of Wild World Animal Hark
Buyers are told how to care for animals they purchase hut atiout 90 percent of the tug cuts sold to individuals are brought hack within the first two or three years, Davidoff said
“A lady comes in with her bus band and buys a little 5-pound tiger When it grows up and becomes a 500-pound cat that can kill them, they call us hack,” Davidoff said

Ground cover reduces runoff
By CARL ENGLERTH District Conservationist
Recent mins arc like a hole in the roof, no one thinks about it until the tiole beglic- to leak Comal (’minty may not have had as much ram is the surrounding areas hut the amount of rainfall runoff vyas minimized due to management ot grasslands in the -watershed
The Comal Fiver Waterbed Hood control structures received very lit tie runoff from the rains which total ed more than to inches iii some areas in the past week Very little rainfall runoff was noted iii the yvatershed because of soils and ground cove? conditions
The soils in the county are gener al ly very slow to absorb water from rainfall Most of out soil takes in water at an optimum rate of non to
0 20 inch per hour therefore it you can slow the surface water move merit with vegetative mot her consei vat ion techniques, you not only ieduce erosion, but you also can catch and hold moi e water in the soil The vegetative cover is the Fest single (actor that helps improve the watei movement into oui soils Vegetative condition in the county during the fast two weeks ha been very good since this is the time when most grass plants are at then ties! tm growing conditions I snails by July most native grass plants have pro dined To percent ot their total yearly production Du the other side ot (tie picture, plants yvill also use more seater (lur mg the hot summer months During the peak consumptive use period of June through September, plants can us« up to (i 25 inch of water per day
'Therefore, water supply tm plants that have a one foot root system could begin to exhaust their seater supply iii foul days Flants having a deep root sy stem of to 8 feet and an excellent ground covet oi top growth are able to go for a long period ss it Dont rain
The hest was to help plants use seater more effectively is to keep a good dense grass cover on the soil at least 50 percent of its total year s grass growth 'This may vary from plant to plant because all plants have different size of root and top growth
