Students earn special visit through Owen Co. library’s summer reading program

By John Whitlock

Nearly 300 people turned out Wednesday to a sneak at peek at some of the unique animals of Australia that have found a home at Kentucky Down Under, a privately-owned park in Horse Cave.
The animals that stopped by included Mirrhi, a baby kangaroo; Merlin, a cockatoo; Hunter, a blue-tounged skink; and Forrest, a python from the Australian rain forest.
The show was part of the rewards for taking part in this year’s Owen County Public Library Summer Reading program. Following the program, guests were treated to snow cones and cotton candy.
