      This could be the last Labor Day for a local animal park that has seen its share of controversy.

      The man running Deer Forest in Coloma recently sold at least half a dozen animals to try and make ends meet.

      He also said in a recent Facebook post that the 65-year-old park may close for good after today.Typically, Deer Forest is open 7 days a week between Memorial Day and Labor Day, then on weekends until Halloween.The United States Department of Agriculture recently cited the park for improper care of the animals. That investigation involves a Chicago man who still owns the land and previously managed the park.

      A separate USDA investigation is ongoing involving the husband and wife who run the park.
