Real Tiger Joins Moss Hill Family

Real Tiger Joins Moss Hill Family

Some students welcomed a tiger into their school family today. Moss Hill Elementary in Kinston adopted “Ares” a Bengal tiger cub from Tiger World. That’s a nonprofit tiger rescue in Rockwell. Today Tiger World brought the 9-week-old cub to school so the students could see the animal they’ve committed to take care of. Each classroom will raise $5.00 a month for the year to take care of Ares.

Guidance Counselor Laura Grosso says, “One of our character education words is involved, so we thought that it would be a really great way for the kids to become involved with saving endangered species and learning more about what we can do as a whole to conserve our world.“

Moss Hill Elementary’s mascot is the tiger, so adopting a real tiger was fitting.
