Cybil

  CYBIL Female Serval DOB 5/22/96   Cybil had a back leg that was fractured beyond repair and it healed very crooked. It was thought that someday we would have the leg removed, but she hops around just fine and the leg has not atrophied as expected. She is probably one of the meanest Servals that lives at Big Cat Rescue. She always greets with a hiss (as shown in this photo). Because Cybil does not like people very much she is not on the regular tour path. That way she will not be upset by visitors. Cybil is the perfect Read More

Ginger

Ginger Female serval Appx. DOB 1/1/2009 Rescued on  5/5/2013   Ginger is approximately four years old and was bottle raised from a kitten. She did not have a name, so in keeping with the Gilligan's Island theme she was named Ginger. Ginger was kept in a cage about 9' x 12'. On one side of her two cougars were housed and on the other was an empty cage about half the size of hers. That empty cage housed another serval who died a few months before the rescue. Sadly the serval had become wedged in between the door panels and Read More

Zabu

ZABU White Female Siberian/Bengal Hybrid DOB 5/15/00 Rescued 5/3/04     http://youtu.be/QuXO1fjLiUU   Cameron the Lion and Zabu the White Tiger are Big Cat Rescue's odd couple. They were both born at a run down roadside zoo in 2000 and were rescued in 2004. At the New Hampshire zoo, Cameron had been raised with Zabu, the white tigress, with the hopes of cross breeding them and selling the resulting Ligers cubs. People often hybridize lions and tigers because they are either trying to create a novelty Read More

Kali Tiger Female Tiger Born 2000 Arrived 9/6/2014   http://youtu.be/e3p4kf9Fm6o Kali (pronounced Kah-lee') the tiger was born in a travel trailer in the year 2000 the day after her mother and a transport full of tigers, leopards, cougars, bears and wolves were dropped off at the Augusta Conservation Education in GA.  The founder of the organization rescued over 300 animals in the 20 years that he ran the facility, but by 2014 he could no longer afford it and began placing the remaining animals.  The International Fund Read More

Mickey Goes Home Daily Big Cat 9-12-14 http://youtu.be/TbC46H5uIF8 Master keeper Gale discusses Mickey the cougar's release and rehabilitation on this episode of #DailyBigCat.   Toronto Jays and Wall Street Journal At least the Jays had the good sense to take down the photos, once they found out that people who love animals think this is nothing more than animal abuse. Big cat cubs belong with their mothers. They aren't ego props. Shame on the WSJ for not doing a simple Internet search on the subject of pay to play cubs before condoning Read More

Keisha

Keisha   http://youtu.be/_qkXhZkZyKY Keisha the tiger was born in 2000 at a pseudo sanctuary in Sinclairville, NY called JnK's Call of the Wild.  She was the second generation of tigers born at that facility and some reports state than 5 generations were born there over the years.  While the website proclaimed to be a sanctuary, in fact, all but one of the 11 tigers had been bred for use as pay to play props.  According to volunteers, Zeus was the son of the original female, Kimba, and then was bred back to his mother to create Read More
