"These people come from all over the world, working six days a week," said Big Cat founder Carole Baskin. "We just had our biggest summer ever — 16 interns." With the proposed addition of 10 adjoining acres for a 50-bed dormitory, "We'll be able to really ramp our intern program up," she said.
Interns now are housed in two doublewide mobile homes, a small trailer and a two-story structure nicknamed "The Barn," all within the sanctuary. The new acreage is large enough to accommodate other improvements, including a 6-acre tiger enclosure Read More
