Public Response to Recent World Animal Protection Report

Posted by Cango on Fri August 16, 2019 in Cango Wildlife Ranch - Out & About.

ATTENTION: WAP (World Animal Protection)

Cango Wildlife Ranch has been in operation for over 34 years, under the current ownership, with the primary focus of premium animal care and public education. Our driving force remains our conservation efforts, research, rehabilitation and public awareness. However, based on the document released, there seems to be a grave misunderstanding of what we do and in turn, enormous and irresponsible accusations that could impact our facility, and the credible work that we do, both for our animals and in our community. The ‘report’ concerning Cango Wildlife Ranch is reckless, libellous and unfounded and it is completely outrageous that we have been lumped with performance/entertainment centres, with no credibility what-so-ever, and that it has been published as such.

A sad farewell for our Cango Wildlife Ranch Team

Posted by Cango on Thu February 7, 2019 in Cango Wildlife Ranch - Out & About.

6 years ago, Venus a female cheetah from Cango Wildlife Ranch, made headlines as one of few animals in the world to under-go eye surgery for bilateral cataracts. Donations came from the world over to help save her deteriorating eyes from only seeing darkness. Doctor Anthony Goodhead (Cape Town) removed the cataracts and large amount of scar tissue from Venus’ corneas. Venus’ surgery was a massive success and transformed her from a scared and nervous animal to a healthy and confident cat, who thrived in her environment at last.
