Neverland Animals Deserted in Desert

Jacko may have saved his beloved playland from being auctioned off, but he couldn't save the animals. Poor Bubbles!

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.
