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
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

Simba Leopard Goes on Vacation
White Female Siberian/Bengal Hybrid
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

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
