The Easter Bunny had a little bit of competition this weekend.
Penn State’s Snider Agricultural Arena featured a menagerie of wildlife Saturday, a collection of creatures ranging from the always classic combo of cats and dogs to the slightly less domesticated stylings of reptiles, hawks and livestock.
All were valued guests at the 16th annual Wild About Animals event sponsored by Centre Wildlife Care and the Small and Exotic Animal Club. Part petting zoo, part carnival, the event featured face painting, pony rides and opportunities to connect with local environmental groups.
All of the proceeds will help to provide care for orphaned and injured wild animals.
