The big cat show, or the Tale of the Tiger, is one of the star events at every King Richard’s Faire and this year celebrates its 25 year touring to Carver.

Cats of various species and ages command the stage before the 400 pound gorilla of the cat world, the liger, takes the stage.

Trained or not, the 900 pound liger (the mating of a male and a female) is simply awe inspiring. It’s difficult to imagine a carnivore that large, then to see it drink from a baby’s bottle with the delicacy of a tamed Siamese cat.

The show is put on by T.I.G.E.R.S. (The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species) and the R.S.F. (Rare Species Fund), based out of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. They train and raise big cats as well as working with international agencies to preserve big cats from extinction.

In addition to seeking support they also take on interns at their camp teaching others how to care for these beautiful animals.
