Does Your Neighbor Have a Tiger? - Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge, Part 1
You are used to hearing a neighbor’s dog bark or cats in a cat fight. If you are farther out in the country, you are even used to the sounds of cows and horses and an occasional coyote howl. But how would you feel if you heard a tiger growl or a lion roar? How would you feel if you discovered that a tiger is living next door in your suburban neighborhood? Or that a lion is roaming a nearby farm? The idea isn't so far-fetched. It's happening right across America. Tigers and lions are surprisingly easy and inexpensive to purchase as pets.
Tubby, Ralph and Katy - Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge, Final Part
I hope that you enjoyed the blogs leading up to the visit of Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge. More importantly, I hope you enjoyed their visit. My path with TCWR began in March 1994. They had 4 baby tigers that were 4 weeks old. I had never dreamed of touching one, let alone being given a bottle to feed one, but that is exactly what happened. From that point on, I have volunteered in any capacity that I could living 5 hours away from them.
