OLYMPIA, Wash. – A Siberian tiger who faced possible euthenasia earlier this month, has been saved, thanks in part to KING 5 viewers.

A Sedro-Woolley couple who got divorced, was no longer able to care for their two pet tigers, and could not afford to relocate them to licensed sanctuaries out of state.

Their owner feared the animals might have to be put down.

After KING 5 aired the story, viewers donated thousands of dollars to the charity trying to relocate the tigers.

The tiger named Choi Hu was relocated to Safe Haven Zoo Rescue in Nevada. The one named Timber will be relocated to a different sanctuary soon, said a spokesperson for the Wild Felid Advocacy Center.
