PHOENIX – Friday it was the animals’ turn to enjoy a little Thanksgiving feast.

The Phoenix Zoo held their Feast with the Beasts event, which gives many animals the chance to enjoy a little holiday-inspired food.

The big attractions on Friday were the Mexican wolves and the Sumatran tiger.

"A lot of people like the tiger. It's kind of one of the A-list animals at the zoo," said Jeremy Barlow with the Phoenix Zoo. "People enjoy seeing tigers anyway, but when they're doing something fun and when they're active and not sleeping, it usually draws a crowd."

In order to make items like pumpkins a little more attractive to the animals, the zoo filled them with meat.
