The Tigers Will Not Sign Autographs
June 07, 2010
Next Monday morning at 9:30, the Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge is coming to the South Independence Branch and they are bringing a couple of their massive predators. I missed their visit last year, but I heard they brought both a tiger and a panther. Beat that Anime Club!
Anyway, Turpentine Creek has been doing great work for years. Over the last few decades, their refuge in Eureka Springs has given a second chance for dozens and dozens of exotic animals. Many of these animals’ previous owners were surprised to find that "cute" tigers have a habit of turning into adult tigers on a fairly consistent basis. As they say on their website, “Big Cats Do Not Make Pets”.
This is going to be a cool event. A couple years ago I had the opportunity to drive through their refuge in Eureka Springs and was impressed by both the size of their refuge (lions can be real divas when it comes to personal space) and their awesome collection of creatures. Like I said this is going to be a cool event. Everyone should come.Tags: animals, events
