Kimba Tiger Update
On June 8, 2014 both of our vets came out to re evaluate Kimba the tigress, as she just isn't eating as well as Zeus and Keisha. They were deliberating over what would be the best and safest course of action for Kimba because she is 20 years old and extremely frail. We didn't think she would even make it through the rescue and transport to FL as she was so starved and depleted. Kimba would only eat a few morsels of food and then stop, so they decided to try and feed her several times a day to try and build her strength Read More

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.... Hopefully this will make her feel more secure. A eye specialist will be coming out to see Zeus soon... 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 Canada lynx
Skipper's age is unknown. He had been purchased along with Gilligan at an auction.
Skipper had the largest cage measuring about 5' x 30'. He had a small plastic dog house and a plastic shelf precariously attached to the side of his cage. A large rabbit carcass lay rotting in the corner of his cage and the entire cage was just as dirty as the others, feces lying everywhere and urine soaked straw.
Big Cat Rescuers entered Skipper's cage with nets in hand and a large transport Read More
