•KING 5 viewers step up to save 2 siberian tigers

OLYMPIA, Wash. – The divorce of a Sedro-Woolley couple has exotic pet
enthusiasts scrambling to find two Siberian tigers a new home.

"I don't want to have to euthanize them," said Jennifer Jones, the
owner of the tigers who can no longer afford to care for the tigers.

The food bill for the two 500-pound animals costs Jones about $400 a
month.

Jones' two other large cats, a lynx and a serval, have been relocated
to a sanctuary in Olympia.

The director of the Wild Felid Advocacy Center said the tigers may be
moved to sanctuaries in California or Wisconsin, but the non-profit
organization does not have the money to move them.

"That could cost $5,000", said director Sheleen Mathews.
