The story began in May 1960 when Mr. Ghis lain Gagnon, a municipal policeman, former forestry worker and great nature lover, conceived the idea of setting up a zoo at St-Félicien. He managed to transmit his immense enthusiasm to six other people: Ghislain Gagnon, Yvon Castonguay, Jean-Marie Gagnon, Marcel Hudon, Marcel Lefebvre, Alexandre Tremblay, Jean-Paul “Pit” Tremblay.
