Aspen Echo

  ASPEN ECHO Female Cougar DOB 8/30/97   Aspen sports the kinked tail and mid-back cowlick that are common to the Florida Panther. She also has a very reddish hue to her coat.

She has no trouble at all entertaining herself by crashing through the thick palmettos in her enclosure chasing after lizards, squirrels, and anything else that moves. She even likes to stalk Keepers as they clean her enclosure in the mornings. Quite the character, Aspen Read More

Two Days Until Big Cat Rescue Turns 20!   Thank you to all of the wonderful donors and matching donors who made it possible for us to forego our big gala, the Fur Ball, this year and concentrate on changing the laws so that big cats are not born into lives of confinement and deprivation as pets and props.

Thank you !!!  http://youtu.be/OhR4-n2A0j0 Today at Read More
