Coloma There are new developments in the case of a troubled exotic animal sanctuary in Berrien County.

The operator of Deer Forest faces an active arrest warrant out of Cass County Illinois.

That stems from an animal cruelty case, where Jon Stolarz was supposed to pay $300 in restitution or appear in court, but neither were ever done.

Right now, the USDA is conducting two investigations into alleged improper animal care at Deer Forest.

According to our reporting partners at WSJM, one of the investigations involves the park's owner, while the other targets Stolarz, who runs the park.
