 Cypress the Rehab Bobcat Update Cypress the bobcat was rescued on January 4, 2014 and has been recovering in the West - Boensch Cat Hospital for these past 7 weeks.  She had been resisting eating whole prey items, such as rats and chicks, so we were getting worried that she would never switch off the ground diet we have been giving her to the real prey items that she would have to eat in the wild. We couldn't let her lose her ability to recognize prey and insisted that she eat what wild bobcats eat, but maybe Cypress knew best because Read More

News from Tiger Nation   With the Illegal Wildlife Trade conference in London, hosted by the UK Government, the brainchild of both Prince Charles and Prince William, and alongside senior officials from across the globe, let us all hope that they can get some concrete action on stopping the catastrophic toll on our planet’s flora and fauna.

Flavio

FLAVIO  Male Siberian/Bengal Tiger DOB 1989 DOD 1/5/2014 Arrived at Big Cat Rescue 1/1/2002   Flavio arrived at Big Cat Rescue in 2002 after retiring from the circus.  He was hailed as the smartest circus tiger ever known.  He performed a light and music number flawlessly for years until he decided one day that he didn't like the other tigers and all he wanted to do was fight.   Perhaps he really was the smartest circus tiger because that bought him a ticket to retirement with us.   He was known here Read More

Amanda the Tiger

  AMANDA Female Tiger Born 1/1/96 Rescued 9/28/11   Arthur, Andre and Amanda were born in 1996 in New Jersey to be used as pay-to-play photo props.  It never makes sense to breed more cubs to raise money to feed last year's cats, and the New Jersey facility fell into disrepair and then was shut down after USDA revoked their license following a tiger escape. In 2003, Wild Animal Orphanage took in the 24 tigers but big cats have big appetites and by 2010 the Wild Animal Orphanage was in bankruptcy. It took Read More
