The Associated Press Oct. 19, 2002

KINGMAN - A plan was submitted this week to county planning and zoning officials for a 90-acre sanctuary in Wikieup for abused, injured and abandoned exotic animals.

Wilderness Edge Wildlife Reserve would be a sister organization of the Wildlife Waystation, a 160-acre nonprofit licensed facility for exotic wildlife refuge near Los Angeles....

After the first phase of the project is completed, possibly by next summer, 12 chimpanzees and 20 lions will be transferred to the Wikieup facility from Wildlife Waystation.
