WALWORTH COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- No people or animals were hurt after a barn collapsed at the Valley of the Kings Sanctuary and Retreat in Walworth County Monday, Feb. 22.

The wildlife facility is home to large cats and other animals.

Connie Hacker says the animals' safety was their first priority.

"We all sprinted out here and looked and saw this," she said.

Pigs, goats and one horse were trapped in the barn, but they got out safely.

They believe the barn collapsed under the weight of heavy snow. 

Hacker says the barn was uninsured at the time of the collapse, and donations can be made through the sanctuary's website
