Moving Big Cats

January 20th, 2009 by Doll Stanley


By far one of the most interesting things I have ever witnessed took place during this last trip to Project Hope. Two tigers (Cookie and Alex) and a liger (Freckles) at a sanctuary that was closing in Gore Springs, MS needed to be relocated. Cougar Haven’s owner had fallen on hard times and was unable to care for the trio any longer. A group from Tampa called Big Cat Rescue stepped in to help and we were there to witness their big move.

Doll had helped place Freckles at Cougar Haven years before when she fought and won the freedom for dozens of big cats from a hoarder in Mississippi. It was nice to see Freckles, Alex and Cookie moved to such a wonderful place as Big Cat Rescue.
