The old Yellow River Game Ranch in Gwinnett County is being transformed in a wildlife sanctuary.

The owners said the ranch will undergo a total renovation.

The first project is to get the animals that are still there in to better habitats.

So far, the owners are digging a bear pool and fencing in a new area for the buffalo.

They are working closely with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, USDA, and a veterinarian to assure the animals are receiving proper care.
