23 Baby Tigers Die at G.W. Exotics

Animal Park Claims Tainted Kitten Formula Killing Tiger Cubs

Tainted formula could be to blame for the deaths of 23 baby tigers in
Wynnewood. The director of G.W. Exotic Animal Park said Sunday that he
and veterinarians struggled since November to figure out why they were
dying. A necropsy performed at OSU last week concluded that formula
caused a one-week-old male tiger to die, records provided by the
director show. PetAg, the formula's manufacturer, could not be reached
for comment, but states on its website that its products are safe when
stored and used as directed. The park told Fox 25 the FDA would arrive
on Tuesday to pick up samples of the formula in question.

What the reporter should be investigating is why a "sanctuary" has 23
baby tigers.
