When Wildfires Closed In On 1,000 Animals, This Man Grabbed A Hose And Put His Life On The Line

Safari West Wildlife Preserve is situated in Santa Rosa, California, and is home to almost 1,000 exotic animals. And the collection of creatures is the culmination of Peter Lang’s life work. When wildfires threatened the animals’ future, then, Peter put his life on the line in an attempt to save them.

In October 2017 wildfires raged through Northern California. In particular, the devastating blazes hit Butte, Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Solano and Sonoma counties; they scorched some 210,000 acres and left 90,000 people with no choice but to leave their homes.
