A lion approaches an enclosure fence during a behind-the-scenes look at the Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg. July 29, 2021. CPR journalists got a close look that most visitors don’t see.

The Wild Animal Sanctuary rescues large carnivores from captivity. Then, how to watch the Perseid Meteor Shower at its peak. And, a first-person account of a mudslide that hit Glenwood Canyon last week. Plus, the search for graves at an Indian School near Grand Junction.
