The Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park is a park displaying animals in Wynnewood, Oklahoma. It was purchased and re-opened by Jeff Lowe, a South Carolina businessman, in February 2016. He holds a USDA license which allows him to exhibit these creatures.

Establishment and history[edit]

The Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park is situated on 16 acres (6.5 ha) and began as a shelter for endangered and exotic species of animals. It currently houses and cares for over 50 species of animals and over 200 big cats, such as tigers, lions, puma, ligers and tigons. In total, the park has approximately 700 animals under its care and shelter during the year.

The park itself offers tours and educational programs for visitors everyday at 11:30 am and 2:30 pm. The park is open everyday from 9 am to 5 pm. The park has been visited by people from all fifty states, along with international visitors from over two hundred countries.[citation needed]

It was announced on September 26, 2018 that the new owner of the zoo, Jeff Lowe, would be closing the zoo in Wynnewood, Oklahoma and moving the animals to a new location near Thackerville, OK. There are no definitive dates stated for the closure.
