Drive-Through Wildlife Park

The first load of exotic deer arrived at a wildlife park near La Grange that plans to open next spring.

Chuck and Tara Schomburg recently purchased a 100-acre property at the corner of Plum Church Road and State Highway 71. Chuck, who runs a bulldozer business, is building trails through the high-fenced property. They plan to stock it with animals from around the world
