Ray Simons has set up a zoo behind his home at Road 94 and Court St. in Pasco. He has coyotes, a grey wolf pup, four deer, two badgers, a bear cub, a bobcat, alligator, skunk, raccoons, woodchuck, ferrets and birds. Those animals not donated to the zoo were purchased from the Washington Zoo in Portland.
