I was talking to a reporter about the new arrivals and noticed that a baby Cardinal had fallen out of the tree and onto Mary Ann the bobcat's jungle gym perch. The mother and father Cardinals were working desperately to lure Mary Ann away from the baby, so it could hop down to the ground outside her cage, but the baby was confused.

Tigers For Tigers Coalition
Tigers For Tigers Coalition (T4TCoalition.org) was founded in 1997 as a way of harnessing the team spirit of colleges with tiger mascots to protect tigers.
