Mishka, the Kinkajou: A Life Remembered at Black Pine Animal Sanctuary

In the quiet corners of Black Pine Animal Sanctuary, where sunlight filters through the leaves of ancient trees, a small, nocturnal creature once captivated visitors. Mishka, the kinkajou, lived a life of curiosity and mystery. Today, we mourn the loss of this remarkable animal—a reminder of the delicate balance between human care and wild instincts.

Subheading 1: A Surrendered Pet Finds Refuge

Mishka’s journey began as a pet, kept by an owner who eventually relocated out of state. Kinkajous, with their large eyes and prehensile tails, are captivating but challenging companions. Their loud calls echo through the night, making them unsuitable for domestic life. Voluntarily surrendered, Mishka found solace at Black Pine, where he could explore the wooded habitats and express his wild nature.

Kinkajous are creatures of the night. Their agile bodies navigate treetops, seeking fruits, nectar, and insects. At Black Pine, Mishka reveled in the freedom to climb, leap, and forage. Visitors attending summer evening events caught glimpses of his playful antics, a testament to the sanctuary’s commitment to providing a forever home for animals like him.

Subheading 3: A Legacy of Advocacy

Mishka’s legacy extends beyond his own life. As we remember him, we continue to advocate for laws protecting exotic animals from the pet trade.
