KEWAUNEE COUNTY, Wis. (WFRV) - A new home for the bobcats at Bruemmer Park Zoo in Kewaunee County is officially complete, and to celebrate the effort the Zoological Society of Kewaunee County is throwing a party.

The new space for “Baxter” and “Isabella” is nearly twice the size of their former space.

The $35,000 exhibit, which measures at 48’x24’, was paid for with donations made directly to the Zoological Society of Kewaunee County and at fundraising events that include, Zoobilee and ZoupArt.

Dave Myers, Kewaunee County Promotion & Recreation Director,

These bobcats are loving their new exhibit, both are enjoying the extra room to roam.

 This is just the beginning of what we have planned for this little zoo, so stay tuned.

Other improvements to the zoo include a new $7,438 entrance sign paid for with donations and installed last fall.


“Melvin”, a 20-foot tall metal sculpture giraffe, was also constructed for the Zoo. It was welded together by Kewaunee business owner Mike Remme.


The Zoological Society of Kewaunee County is throwing a party and inviting the public to celebrate the new additions on Sunday, June 3 from 10:30AM-2PM.

There will be food and refreshments available for purchase throughout the event with proceeds benefiting Bruemmer Park Zoo and free cake served at 12:30PM.
