Tiger Watching TV

 

 

We decided to see if tigers like to watch television? We do everything we can to make our residents comfortable and stimulated while living in captivity, as part of our enrichment program we’re always trying new things to see how the cats respond.

    Bengali says " Thank you for the tv and I am glad they did not play that chickcycle commercial… it really makes my cravings for them worse. Now where did I leave that remote so I can turn to TTV (tiger tv)?"

    The first time I went to BCR wayyy back in 2004 the Enrichment Program amazed me. The details records kept on daily enrichment so that no cat was ever left without enrichment. The way the staff and volunteers observed what the cats' reactions were to various enrichments. Funny how some cats like one thing and others don't. I was impressed with the staff and volunteers for knowing which cats liked what and making sure each cat got something that peaked their interest. I had been in SEVERAL places in several states and BCR was the first place I saw that was so dedicated to enrichment. Guess that was ONE of the reasons BCR became my favorite place on earth. BUT… a TV for a tiger… LOL you guys have topped it..
