The Saga Of Stanley: Malibu Giraffe Left Behind In California Wildfire

(ANIMAL RESCUE) As the Woolsey Fire raged throughout Southern California on Friday, concern grew over the welfare of the menagerie of animals at Malibu Wines, a popular vineyard in the fire's path. As information began to emerge regarding the animals left on the winery's ground--including horses, pigs, cows, zebras, camels, alpacas, and most famously, Stanley the Giraffe, which all serve as attractions along the winery's Safari Tour--it was unclear if and how the animals were being kept safe. Activists were quick to condemn the winery, claiming the animals shouldn't have been left behind, while experts say evacuating poses extreme risk to some of the exotic animals. Thankfully all but two animals--a llama with foot pad issues and a horse with wounds from a wire fence--were completely unharmed. But some say the dire situation still begs the question: should a winery be caring for exotic animals? Read on to learn more about the saga of Stanley and share your thoughts in the comments below. -- Global Animal
