The DEW (domestic, exotic, wild) Animal Kingdom is An animal refuge located in Mount Vernon, Maine.
The owner began the farm years ago after returning from war. He began taking in mistreated or abandoned domestic animals, soon taking in wildlife from around Maine for rehabilitation and release back into the wild. Later on he began taking in exotic animals from zoos around the country or from private homes where people illegally kept exotic animals as pets. He has a wide variety of exotic animals ranging from African lions, Bengal tigers, white Bengal tigers, hyenas, camels, kangaroos, panthers, alligators, and several other species.
The Alpine ski team volunteered last Saturday to help tear down a large 12 x 12 x 24 pen. This pen was torn down piece by piece so it could be mobilized, and then Colby skiers put their minds to work as they reassembled it. DEW Animal Kingdom operates off donations so they greatly appreciated the help from the brawny Colby athletes.
