In case you already didn’t know, Brent Burns is an absolute beast. Everyone knows he has the best beard in the NHL, limited amounts of teeth, and a sick sleeve tattoo. But what some of you didn’t know is that Burns literally owns a zoo at his home in Texas. Here’s the video that the San Jose Sharks posted on Twitter the other day.
This dude is so damn interesting. Not many other sports have players who go above and beyond, while also being some of the coolest people off the field. It is really cool what he’s doing with these animals, since some of them are endangered. Burns is a guy who cares about so much more than hockey and I love how he shows his passion for nature during the offseason. You can fact check me here, but I’m pretty sure he’s the only Norris Trophy winner that has ever bred wild animals. Thankfully, the Sharks are putting out 2 more episodes following Burns’ family and their zoo. Never change, Brent Burns.
