Families get up close with exotic animals

CLINTON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The rainy, cold weather didn't stop people from coming out to Tractor Supply in Clinton to get their hands on some exotic animals for the Mississippi Animal Rescue League's Fall Fest.

The family friendly event is the one time per year people can learn firsthand about these animals in a public setting.

Due to the rain, the event was moved inside Tractor Supply Company . Kids and adults of all ages got the opportunity to pet and play with parrots, lizards, snakes, groundhogs and ferrets. All the animals are from Percy Amazing Animal Presentations. Attendees also got the chance to learn about their habitats.

"This was just a fun event to get out, get the kids out, introduce them to different animals, we did take some donations that were give to us but there was no real stress on adoptions or anything like that, we didn't even bring the dogs to be adopted today," said Rick Wooton from the Mississippi Animal Rescue League.

"I liked the green parrot named Joey, although he kind of pecked my face," said Ariel Hinton of Clinton.

Donations benefited the Mississippi Animal Rescue League.
