TULSA, Oklahoma -- Things got a little wild at a Tulsa senior center Tuesday.

Broken Arrow's Safari's Sanctuary packed up some of its exotic creatures and headed to Leisure Village.

People there got to hold and pet the animals. African foxes and lemurs were the main attraction.

"You just watch all their faces light up when the animals come in, they can interact with them and just love on them, so that's a good thing for them," PR Director Heather Berryhill said.

While the animals aren't your traditional pets, workers at the center say having these furry creatures around helps fill a little void some of the residents felt when they had to leave their pets behind when they moved.
