Hollywild Animal Park is a non-profit zoo in Inman, South Carolina. The 100acre park has more than 500 animals. A number of the animals have appeared in TV shows and movies. The park includes an outback safari which covers more than. The animals roam freely in this area, giving guests the opportunity to hand feed animals such as fallow deer, sika deer, white tail deer, zebras, bison, Watusi cattle, Scottish Highlanders, donkeys, emus, and more.The park was named for their animals' history with films and commercials. Some of their stars include Tank the White Rhino, Capuchin monkeys, zebras, chimpanzees, African lions, cougars, an Appaloosa horse, macaws, lynx, Siberian tigers, brown bears, leopards, baboons, jaguars, orangutans, camels, and Asian elephants. HollyWild also focuses on learning opportunities for the guests, beginning with hand feeding animals, but they go as far as field trips, programs for scouts, camps, home school Days, and outreach programs.Early daysHollyWild was started by the Meeks family. They started with typical farm animals and animals native to South Carolina in their back yard. In 1970, the M&M Zoo opened with Donna the Elephant (1967-2007) as one of the stars of the park. Because the animals are hand raised, they are often used in movies and the acting world.2015 FireOn January 9, 2015, a zoo worker arrived on site to find smoke in a barn where some of the animals live. A fire had started overnight due to an electrical short in a lighting installation. Twenty-eight animals had died due to smoke inhalation, including eight endangered lemurs, two capuchin monkeys, four chimpanzees, two baboons, two mangabeys (monkeys), one bear cub, one African crowned crane, three tortoises, four wolf hybrid puppies, and one cat. Fourteen other animals in the building survived.
