Mickey Cougar Male Cougar Born 6/25/2003 Rescued 8/18/2014   http://youtu.be/gsh2DQx-krM   http://youtu.be/0bndB9_8wBQ Mickey Cougar's story is so long and heartbreaking that it will be hard to tell in just a few minutes.  (Watch his rescue video to find out the whole story.) Animal House, in Moulton, AL, was a backyard zoo that operated with a USDA license up until 2006 when it was revoked.  At the time Alabama had no laws to regulate the private possession of wild animals, so once USDA washed their Read More

Your Honest Opinion   We are trying something new with our main YouTube channel at YouTube.com/BigCatRescue.  In the past we would launch one video per week and make sure it was the best we could offer, with concise editing, music and scripted dialogues where necessary. Anything else we filmed, such as keeper walk abouts, long form videos, mini clips, etc. would be posted at our secondary channel YouTube.com/DailyBigCat It dilutes our branding to divide our videos across two channels, but we don't want our loyal primary channel viewers Read More

Gilligan

Gilligan Male Canada lynx Appx. 1/1/07 Rescued 5/5/13     Gilligan's age is unknown. He was purchased along with Skipper at an auction. Gilligan had the tiniest cage measuring 5' x 7'. It was also the dirtiest of all of the cages. The mud floor was not mud, but feces covered with a sprinkling of straw. It appeared as though Gilligan had tried to keep much of his waste confined to one area on top of his plastic dog house. He had perched atop the house day after day to defecate. The large pile of feces cascaded out Read More

Now at Big Cat Rescue Oct 3 2014   Genie the Sandcat is rushed to the vet when her keepers note that she is acting weird. Genie Sandcat was sedated in a glass box used for domestic cats.   This was to make sedation easier on her since she is only 3.3 pounds and 14 years old.   Dr. Wynn keeps a close eye on her vitals.   The monitors are just all over the place, so she has to rely on feel, sound and instincts.   For such an old and tiny cat, Genie Sandcat has some fearsome Read More

Jumanji

  JUMANJI Male Leopard DOB 2/23/96   Since he is one of the first black leopards you see at the sanctuary, Jumanji is used to quite a bit of attention. Most days, he can be found in the shadiest part of his cat-a-tat lounging on his fern-covered tree log. It is very easy to see how well black leopards camouflage themselves in the jungle since most people walk right by without noticing him there. People magazine certainly noticed Jumanji though.  His photo was featured in an article written about Big Cat Rescue. Jumanji Read More

Cody

  CODY Male Cougar DOB 1/1/96 Rescued 1/21/00 Cody and Missouri were rescued as a result of a divorce, in which they became the unwanted and abandoned dependents. They arrived here on January 21, 2000 and were filmed for Jack Hanna’s Wild Adventures which aired on May 6, 2000. Cody is very handsome. He and his mate Missouri, who has since passed on, are the only two Cougars at Big Cat Rescue that have solid black noses.   Cody is quite shy around people and will often retire to his cave den when visitors approach, Read More
