Malcolm Fleming with Gengis

Louisville Gets Wild Animal Preserve License

Louisville was one of three American cities awarded a coveted Wild Animal Preserve designation. "This is one more reason that Louisville is such a cool place to live," says City Manager Malcolm Fleming, pictured above at the new off-leash cat park with recently acquired Bengal Tiger, Gengis. Gengis will make his public debut at a "meet and greet" at the April City Council meeting. "We're thrilled to have Gengis in town" said Council member Frost Yarnell, who added with a sly smile, "I just might sneak a steak into Councilman Keany's back pocket at the meet and greet."

According to Ms. Yarnell, the city hopes to add three animals a year, including a pair of Grizzlies in time for the first Street Faire.
