This is Hank, a tiger at the animal refuge I volunteer at. He is very beautiful! He is pretty docile, but you can't let your guard down around any of the the big cats there. Just thought I would share :wink:

There are 11 tigers and 3 lions at the refuge (and a bunch of other animals). All have pretty sad stories. I believe Hank was used as a cub for television commercials/shows. A lot of the big cats there have never been in the wild :cry: .

oooh hank, i love you!

carol, that must be so magical getting that close to such wonderful animals. i would never get any work done tho lol. last time i went to the zoo, i spent hours sitting by the perspex glass of the tiger enclosure having a "blinky eyes session" with the female who was also named ren. (renee to be precise). i felt so honoured that she chose to communicate with me in this way & allow me into her world a little. i could really see the resemblance in the way they communicate & the mannerisms, to our household cats, & this was before i had bengals...

i really am due a visit to a zoo, i need a tiger fix hehe :lol:

aww rhiannon, that even made the news over here too :cry: he was only doing what came naturally. if they had protected him better this never would have happened. i feel for the people, but they can't blame a tiger for acting on his instincts :evil:
