Big Cat Updates

Many of you have asked about Armani.  Armani is doing very well.  She is getting extra enrichment and the keepers are watching her for signs of boredom or stress but so far she is doing quite well.


ACTION ALERT! We need YOUR emails and calls today to the Georgia Mountain Fall Festival asking them to CANCEL the Nerger’s Tigers circus show at their upcoming event.

Big Cat Rescue reached out to the fairgrounds manager about cancelling the exploitative circus show but received no reply. So we NEED YOUR HELP to politely email and call the festival.

Wording you can use/tweak: I believe it is cruel to exploit majestic big cats in a circus act at your upcoming Georgia Mountain Festival; tigers should not be used as entertainment. Please cancel the Nerger’s Tigers show at your fall festival!



Call: 706-896-4191

Learn more about Nerger’s Tigers and their numerous USDA violations of the Animal Welfare Act:

THANK YOU for speaking up for these tigers!
