The animal rescue has opened new habitat areas for 12 big cats.
Big Cat Habitat, an nonprofit safe haven for big cats, bears and other animals, has opened new enclosures and habitat areas for 12 big cats. The new areas will allow visitors safe, up-close viewing of the animals, including Brutus, a 4-year-old liger who outgrew existing enclosures.
The new $90,000 enclosures have splash pools for the tigers, as the old ones did.
Funding for the expansion came from a $10,000 bequest from the estate of local cowboy Hub Hubbell, $6,000 raised by Sunset Subaru’s Share the Love event, individual donations and admission fees.
