A lot of little girls go to bed and dream of ponies. But not Patricia Engesser. Her childhood dreams were filled with snarling tigers. And she didn’t wake up screaming.
“I always wanted a tiger,” Engesser said. “So, I married a guy with one.”
Engesser and her husband, Robert, have been married about 26 years and own The Zoo AKA Jungle Safari between Chiefland and Trenton.
It is one of six licensed wild animal facilities in Levy County.
