IBOUGHT AZOO

- KATE KYR­I­A­COU

THERE’S the minia­ture Shet­land whose spine is crip­pled with sco­l­io­sis. And the race­horse that ran away af­ter be­ing shot in the head. Then there are the “minia­ture pigs” that turned out to be larger than ex­pected.

And they’re all at the home of one of Queens­land’s most high-pro­file lawyers.

Michael Boss­cher (pic­tured) now leaves the zoo of the state’s crim­i­nal courts for the one at his own house af­ter tak­ing over Serendip­ity Farm, a pet­ting zoo and res­cue cen­tre.

The ven­ture was orig­i­nally run from a prop­erty near Gat­ton but the owner had to give it up for health rea­sons. Michael, his wife, Ali­son, and their four chil­dren now care for and re­home an­i­mals from their Brook­field prop­erty.

And while the Boss­ch­ers ar­gue over whose idea it was to bring about 100 an­i­mals home, they agree it was done for their an­i­mallov­ing eldest daugh­ter, Peri, 18.

Serendip­ity Farm will be hold­ing a grand open­ing day on Septem­ber 13. For de­tails, visit their Face­book page.
