ST. LOUIS, Mo. — A tiger seized during the raid of a puppy mill near Seneca has died. The National Tiger Sanctuary near St. Louis says Sheena showed signs of illness on Valentine’s Day. She died this week.

Authorities removed Sheena and 200 dogs from JB’s Precious Puppies in February 2009 after reports of neglect. Sheena was originally sent to Springfield’s Dickerson Park Zoo.

She lived at the sanctuary for nearly a year. In that year, Sheena gained weight, topping the scales at 400 pounds. She also loved to sun herself and play with her bowling ball.
