Welcome Neighbor Tours at Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch

The 1,400 acre Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch, operated by The Fund for Animals, is one of America's largest and most diverse animal sanctuaries. The world-renowned animal sanctuary in Murchison is a permanent haven to more than 800 domestic and exotic animals rescued from research laboratories, circuses, zoos, captive hunting operations, factory farming, and government round-ups.  Residents include tigers, bears, chimpanzees, bison, tortoises, horses, burros and more. Founded in 1979, Black Beauty is also home to the innovative Doris Day Equine Center which focuses on developing programs to elevate public perception of horses rescued from cruelty and neglect, as well as serving as a resource for other equine rescue centers around the country.

Fishing Report from TPWD (May 11)

EXCELLENT. Water normal stain; 72 degrees; 1.11 feet low. Crappie are excellent under docks and on brush piles in 6-18 feet of water using jigs and minnows. Largemouth bass are excellent on rocks, docks, and in the shad spawn. As the fish feed up on the schools of shad in the early mornings you can catch them on chatterbaits and topwaters. White and hybrid bass are excellent schooling in the morning on main lake humps around the birds. Catfish are excellent on fresh shad near retaining walls and rocks. Report by Kyle Miers, Lake Country Outfitters.
