SASKATOON – The Wildlife Festival is in town for the second year, bringing over 20 live animals to Prairieland Park to educate people and promote responsible ownership. Stretch the python and Lucy the falcon stopped by the Global Saskatoon studio with their handlers to promote the event.

Wildlife educator Kyle Lawrie says they want to educate people along with having some fun.

“We want them to enjoy seeing the snake, seeing the kangaroo, and face their fears by holding the tarantula, or the snake.”

Kevin Stanfield decided to make anchor Lisa Dutton face her fear by holding the 30 pound snake. Watch the video above to see how it turned out.
