Original Post from January of 2014:  From the Lost Parks website I learned that Tommy Bartlett’s international Deer Ranch in Silver Springs, Florida, was a petting zoo “in the early 1960’s. The land was only rented from the Springs, and there was at least one lawsuit between Bartlett and Silver Springs over the terms of his lease. Eventually the land was reabsorbed into the Silver Springs attraction and Bartlett left to concentrate on his Wisconsin busineses. He died in September, 1998.”
