ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Animals at the Parks at Chehaw had a lot to be thankful for Sunday. The park held their first Animal Thanksgiving celebration.

Tiny chefs helped prepare the gourmet treats of mostly fruits and vegetables.That food was placed in boxes or edible containers for the animals throughout the park.

"It's not the food they normally get and they kind of have to work for their food a little bit. Grab it out of the pumpkin or find the hole in the gourd. So it's just to remind ourselves how special these animals are. And they need some treats at Thanksgiving like we do too," said Education Specialist, Anne Grinnan.

The children at the park got just as much out of the treats as the animals did. They enjoyed watching the animals figure out exactly how to get to their treats. Children also made treats to take home for the animals in their back yards.
