Stripes! Tiger returns to Louisiana Purchase Gardens & Zoo

Staff report • news@thenewsstar.com • October 29, 2009

The Louisiana Purchase Gardens & Zoo is adding a 2-year-old tiger, Timmy, to The Catwalk.

Zoo Director Joe Clawson accepted the donation from owners Brian Frazen, an animal trainer and performer, and associate John Rougeou.

Timmy will debut Saturday at Boo at the Zoo, which will also celebrate the opening of “The Hall of Small” interactive insect exhibit.

Boo at the Zoo, which runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., will feature candy and prizes, and costume contests and is presented as a fund raising event by the Louisiana Purchase Zoological Society.

The Catwalk also features a black jaguar and a pair of lions. Other cats around the park include African caracals and servals and North American bobcats.

Louisiana Purchase Gardens & Zoo is open daily from 10- 5:00, closed only New Year’s Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
