You may be wondering: How will Big Cat Rescue's cats be able to go on vacation? Well, we have recently received zoning approval to build a huge 2.5 acre enclosure on the Southwest end of our 55-acre property. It's been our dream for years to be able to construct a special enclosure that can be used to rotate cats in and out of their permanent enclosures. Once construction is complete, the cats will enjoy two-week vacations in the new surroundings of our Vacation Rotation enclosure!
It will cost approximately $200,000 to build this 111,600 square-foot dream enclosure for our cats. We have already begun to erect the poles for the perimeter and assemble the materials we will require. To wrap our heads around how HUGE 111,000 square feet actually is, we've listed suggested donation amounts as they relate to rooms in a typical home. Your donations now will allow us to continue to move forward with this project, which we estimate will take six months to complete.

Alexander Crispin Killed by Tiger During Circus Act
Police say that Alexander Crispin, 35, died after being attacked by his tiger inside the Suarez circus tent. Crispin, who was originally from the United States and worked as a tiger tamer, was bitten on the neck by the enraged animal in the middle of the show. Crispin was taken by ambulance to the Red Cross hospital Huatabampo, Sonora where he died while receiving medical care, as a result of hypovolemic shock. Hysterical spectators ran out of the scene during the attack. It is believed that the tiger was killed during the struggle when beating him did not cause him to release Crispin.
