Here is a Disney blog post about it from June of this year, so I assume it's still there.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking of. The show was outside right next to the petting zoo. Seems like a pig painted a picture? or something. Basically a couple of humans showing off animal talent. Just wondering if it was still going to be there.

When I was a CP on safari's I would sometimes pick up extra shifts at the Affection Section. It would be 8 hours of asking guests "would you like a brush to brush the goats?" and chasing the goats back into the pen when they would escape. Good times.
