It was their intention to cross breed Zabu, a white tiger, with their resident male lion, Cameron, in order to create baby white Ligers These freakish hybrids have become popular, though this is not an animal that would even exist in the wild. It is important that people understand that, by refusing to visit venues with these animals on display, this type of animal abuse can be stopped.

Bella is very quite and reserved. She spent her first few days in her new enclosure in her den. She had never had a den before, so the dark secluded area was quite appealing.

Bella has turned around since her arrival and is quickly becoming a favorite among volunteers and guests alike.

Female Siberian/Bengal Tiger
When China Doll's owners discovered that they were going to have a baby and be dealing with terminal illness in their family, they asked Big Cat Rescue to take their tiger and 8 cougars and we did. Even people who could afford to give proper care to these cats in large cages, good food and vitamins and love, were not prepared to commit to a lifetime of care when their personal situation changed.
