“saving tigers one by one”
Tiger Creek has seen a lot of changes over the years as we continue to grow and build top rated enclosures for the cats. We have opened up our new area in the back part of the refuge where the new habitats for the big cats are being constructed. Visitors can view the cats in a natural setting with trees, grass, room to run, tubs to cool off in and platforms to climb on. Our old parking lot has turned into the cougar area. We have new, tall enclosures for the cats. Cougars like to climb and lounge up high looking down on everyone, and they are able to do just that in these new habitats. The leopards sit just past the cougars in the same type of enclosures, giving them room to run and climb. Each new habitat has indoor enclosures so we can lock the cats up inside when needed. This allows the staff to feed the cats inside or keep them isolated for medical procedures. Furnished in a natural stone, these houses also remain cool in the summer time and warm in the winter. We have added automatic waterers so they have access to fresh water 24 hours a day and each house has a lounging platform inside.
A delightful stop just seven miles off I-20. My son and I went on the guided tour. The cats were beautiful, though not terribly active. The tour guide was engaging and friendly. It only took about an hour, and there's a good BBQ place on the way if you need to grab lunch before or after.
