Clint Perkins Riverside Zoological Park

Clint Perkins Riverside Zoological Park

Clint Perkins was said to be 17 when he started collecting big cats under the lofty sounding name of Riverside Zoological Park at 1402 CR 5150 Coffeyville, KS 67337.  In 2010 USDA fined Clint Perkins $20,000 and barred him from exhibiting until correcting such major violations as insecure caging, improper handling of animals and lack of program of vet care.

By the time he was in his mid thirties he had managed to rack up all of the charges above and in 2011 gave his last 10 lions and tigers to the Lakewood Zoo.
