Big Cat Updates

Pharaoh and Kewlona

Pharaoh Serval was sedated for an exam today. He has been limping. There was nothing abnormal on his X-rays. His blood work was average for a cat his age (17). He had one bad canine and one molar removed. He will be on a soft food diet for 2 weeks. Please check his med chart for medications.

Kewlona Bobcat was spayed today. She will spend 7-10 days recovering in the cat hospital.

Smalls Bobcat has been moved back out to her enclosure. She has refused to eat in the cat hospital so we are putting her outside early.

More Snow Leopards Are Dying Due To Poaching And Retaliation

The Guardian reports that between 259 and 450 snow leopards are annihilated every year since 2008. NGO said that the number could be higher as the killings in some isolated areas are not identified.

“This young tiger is about 265 lbs., aged approximately one to one-and-a-half years,” said Sergei Aramilev, director of the Far Eastern branch of the Amur Tiger Center.



Predators Unlimited Update

Jeremy Possman and his wife founded Predators Unlimited, possibly because they decided that the real money is in tigers and lions instead of alligators. The “sanctuary”/ business is run from the Possman’s backyard, where a menagerie of exotics, including tigers, lions, leopards, bobcats, wolves, primates, and even a Florida Panther live in ramshackle cages.
