There used to be 280 exotic birds, fish and mammals at the estate. That included 150 lovebirds, a pair of sloths, wallabies, black neck swans, the penguins, an East African crowned crane and 80 fish.
In 2013, courts gave CSD LLC the right to sell all these animals during a bankruptcy filing. The highest bidder was a conservation center in Rainier, Oregon, who paid $27,300 for the lot.
But we're not sure if this deal ever went through or Newton restocked the cages because there were animals at the estate years later, when it finally opened to the public.
