Work underway on new bobcat exhibit at Kewaunee’s Bruemmer Park Zoo
KEWAUNEE – Baxter and Isabella are getting ready to move into a new home that’s nearly double the size of their current space.
Baxter and Isabella are the bobcats at Bruemmer Park Zoo, and they’re upgrading because Kewaunee Couty has begun installation of a new bobcat exhibit at the zoo.
The new space for the bobcats will be 48-by-24 feet. Construction is expected to take about two weeks.
The approximate $35,000 cost of the new exhibit is being paid for with donations made directly to the Zoological Society of Kewaunee County and from fundraising events that include Zoobilee and ZoupArt.
“The support that the Zoological Society of Kewaunee County receives is tremendous, and it’s nice to see not only Kewaunee County residents but visitors from outside of our community invested in our parks as well,” said Dave Myers, Kewaunee County Promotion and Recreation director.
For safety reasons, the lower portion of the zoo is temporarily closed to the public until construction is completed.
