Neverland Animals Deserted in Desert

3/18/2008 4:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jacko may have saved his beloved playland from being auctioned off, but he couldn't save the animals. Poor Bubbles!
Neverland Animals -- click to launch
All of Jacko's pets, including giraffes, giant pythons, parrots and a menagerie of other species, were purchased by Banjoko Nature Preserve in Arizona. The creatures are intended to be "presented center-stage at a 185 acre planned multi-million dollar wildlife preserve."

Yeah, a zoo in the desert. Ironically, the pets look happier than ever.

Where are the PETA people when you really need them to go after someone who deserves it? That phony oranization chasing old ladies wearing minks around, yet they let this Jacko mistreat his animals these last years since his money problems and not a peep from them.

PETA should be ashamed of giving Jacko a free pass.

Yeah, well we have zoos in Arizona too! I somehow find the prospect of a giraffe in Arizona a bit more reasonable than say, New York in the winter. The World Wildlife Park in Az is a pretty cool place! I'm sure this place will be too. Better than in the hands of some wack job!

The desert is not for the meek hearted. Trust Michael Jackson won't follow them there. His face might just melt off in the Arizona Sun!

Not all of Arizona is a desert! Northern Arizona actually has Pine Forest and gets snow. And a wildlife preserve isn't a zoo. There are wildlife preserves in Arizona w/ elephants on them that have hundreds of acres of land to roam. Besides, I don't think animals from AFRICA would have too much trouble surviving in Arizona.

Wasn't one of Michael's favorite songs "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles"?

Sorry to nit-pick TMZ... but "Deserted in the Desert" just doesn't seem like the right headline. Those animals look anything but deserted. Maybe they were at "Neverland" but to me it seems like those animals have found a "Desert Oasis". Then again ANYWHERE away from Michael Jackson is an oasis.

These animals should not have been in his personal possession.... We have professional zoos in the westen world to introduce people to animals of the wild.

Wny didn't they lock up Jacko in the desert for everyone to see and return the animals to their native habitats?
