The woman had heard about the Olympic Game Farm, but visiting the drive-through wildlife attraction in person was another experience entirely. What’s more, it only got more exciting when she saw one of the exhibit’s famous bears up close and personal. She was so close, in fact, that she even gave the animal a wave. And what happened next left her astonished.
The wildlife exhibit in question is more properly known as the Olympic Game Farm (OGF), and it’s to be found in Sequim in the State of Washington. Notwithstanding its name, though, the attraction actually has a lot in common with wildlife parks. For one thing, the farm appeals to animal lovers, as it offers them the opportunity to get close to its furry and feathered residents.
Back in the 1950s, the farm was dubbed Disney’s Wild Animal Ranch, and it was in the employ of Walt Disney Studios. It was also nowhere near as well known to the public during that era. And the grounds were used both as a film set and as a place in which to keep the animal actors between filming.
