Animals takeover Boitanio Mall for Rose Lake/Miocene Easter Petting Zoo

Goats, ducks, cats, chickens, pigs, lambs, ponies, puppies and even a bearded dragon invaded Boitanio Mall Saturday for the annual Rose Lake/Miocene Easter Petting Zoo.

The mall was packed with families taking advantage of the Easter activity, which also featured a cake walk by donation to the club.

Rose Lake/Miocene club reporter Isaac Bedford, 13, said it’s been a great morning and afternoon and added the club is thrilled to be able to host the event.

“We just want to thank all the people that came out,” Bedford said. “Quite a few people are here.”
