Documentary. Last year, the Dartmoor Wildlife Park in Devon was set to close. A few keepers remained, miserably realising that the animals they had loved would all have to be put down. Luckily, 38-year-old writer Ben Mee and his family bought the zoo for a sum of over a million pounds. Ben realises that repairs are needed when a wolf escapes. He needs to raise 500,000 pounds investment, but it's already too late when a jaguar escapes into the tiger enclosure.
