About Killman Zoo

1969, Murray Killman bought his first cat. Maggie the Cougar was Murray’s first feline love as he studied her to be able to paint her. As an artist this became one of Murray’s biggest passions and he collected more cougars through the 70’s. Then through the 80’s he expanded to acquire Candy the Jaguar along with Ocelot’s, Bobcats and the Canadian Lynx. Enclosures for the animals were built as needed and thus started the Killman’s Wildlife Sanctuary.

 As the sanctuary grew a lot of work was done to the property that the current zoo continues to sit on. The whole top section of the zoo was a farmer’s field that Murray lovingly planted trees throughout that to this day continue to provide staff and visitors with lovely shade during the summer months.  Read more…
