UPDATE: NY Tigers Keisha, Kimba & Zeus are all settling in well at the sanctuary... Keisha is still very shy and her only den is right on the tour path (currently roped off so no large tour groups go down there) so we'll be moving her to a neighboring enclosure that's further away from future people traffic and closer to the lake....

We sent her photos and video of Zeus's eye and she thinks that this may be an old injury and he is most likely Read More

Male Siberian/Bengal Tiger
Arrived at Big Cat Rescue 12/5/2000
Bengali used to ride on a horse drawn chariot in the circus. When he was retired here, we were told that he would surely kill someone because he was so confrontational. It is amazing what a change of living conditions can do for a tiger!
Since his days are no longer spent on the road living in a transport carrier, but rather playing with his giant red Planet Ball, jumping in his pool, napping high on top of his den, or chuffing at his Read More
