TURKEYS VS TIGERS 2007
Welcome to the 2007 edition of Turkeys vs Tigers.
Here at Big Cat Rescue we try to give our cats the best life possible in captivity. We have a great enrichment program, and during the holidays we try to spice it up and one of the things we do is give out turkeys to the big cats. Watch as some of our biggest residents dine on their raw turkey dinner.
*Thanks to CBS Tampa's Channel 10 for coming out once again to promote this. And we are also thankful for having the greatest volunteers Read More
2007 Updates on Some of our Big Cat Surgeries
Come with us as we update you on the big cats that appeared in three of our more popular pod casts this year.
At Big Cat Rescue we pride ourselves that we are doing the best we can in this animal industry to have strong ethics. We have grown into a world-class non-breeding sanctuary and we don’t give in to the theory that babies bring in money, or that you have to rotate animals or get rid of surplus.
We have no roller coasters, no petting zoos or photo booths Read More
The Amur leopard is in a very tough spot right now, and those that are trying to save this species need your help! At BCR we are trying to make every cats life mean something, so we are using our captive animals as spokespeople for their wild cousins.
Snow Leopard Study Program Participation 2007
Big Cat Rescue loves to help out and support wild feline conservation. We were recently asked to participate in a project that collected fecals from captive snow leopards, in order to be used to train dogs to identify the smell. These dogs will then be used out in snow leopard habitat to better help the researchers. Helping out the snow leopard is important as lets face it, the leopard doesn’t have the fact that people can ride up to it sleeping on the plains on a jeep Read More
Will We Save the Florida Panther 2007
At Big Cat Rescue we often try to help others understand why the cat populations are going down in places like Asia and Africa. We sometime forget that this is happening in our own backyard. Take a look at the current situation of the Florida Panther. Even though their numbers are slightly higher than reported in the 1980's after decades of over hunting there are more killed on the roads than ever before.
In 2006 we had 11 endangered Read More
Cougar Cubs All Grown Up
Online Videos by Veoh.com
The current situations with cougars (mountain lions etc…) are interesting. You could be a Florida Panther, which are protected and slowly heading towards extinction (as many are hit by vehicles each year due to a huge population growth in Florida), or you could be a western puma and legally hunted in states like Oregon for a $10.00 fee.
The cougars we mostly hear about are those that are people’s former pets. We get calls all the time where people went out and bought Read More
The Tampa, Florida summers are getting hotter and hotter… so, to help our water loving felines “Beat the Heat” we build ponds in their enclosures. Watch as our tigers cool off and have some fun in their personal pools.
Thanks to having some of the best supporters in the world, Big Cat Rescue is able to give excellent care to its 140+ residents.
*Special mention to author Caleb Carr for his generous donation toward the pond reconstruction project.
4 Tigers Rescued from Robert Baudy's Savage Kingdom
When a long time feline breeding compound was closed down, the resident cats there needed a place to call home. Even though there are so many unwanted adult captive tigers in the U.S. some of the facilities that took the animals would use them for breeders (Even though none of them have the genes needed in the Tiger Species Survival Program) or put them right back up for sale onto the exotic animal market.
Big Cat Rescue got the call Read More
TOO MANY TIGERS? (female tiger spayed)
So many times we get asked why we get our endangered animals spayed or neutered?...well, in this video we address that subject. In short- believe it or not, there are more captive tigers than wild tigers and that is something we do not like. The cats we have serve no purpose for the future of their species (not a part of the SSP) other than educating the public. We do tours of our facility and educate the public about captive and wild tigers and we send funds to tiger conservation Read More
