Taking a Walk on the Wild Side

Heart throb Matt Damon is being lined up to play the part of a South Devon wildlife park owner in a story that's touched the Heart's of Hollywood producers.

Matt & Caroline and news mistress Michaela went to visit Dartmoor Zoo to see what all the fuss is about.

They spoke to owner Ben Mee about his tale of when he bought the zoo in a poor state from the previous owner and how he's ploughed his own money into the business.

But unless visitor numbers turn start rising it could all be for nothing with the park being sold and the animals put down.

The film - which is at the early stages - could be the 'life saver' that the owners have been waiting for.
