TAMPA — Three tigers named Keisha, Kimba and Zeus arrived at Big Cat Rescue on Wednesday evening after a 22-hour trip from New York to Tampa.
The tigers — 14, 19 and 17 years old, respectively — were rescued from JNK's Call of the Wild Sanctuary in Sinclairville, N.Y. A fourth died before it could be rescued.
The trip was arranged by Florida-based Loving Friends Transport. Big Cat Rescue is the world's largest accredited sanctuary dedicated entirely to abused and abandoned exotic cats.

I'd like to congratulate Big Cat Rescue for actually legitimately rescuing 3 needy tigers. I'm left wondering why they didn't take the others also, as they certainly have the room as well as the money. They should have about 40 openings after their most recent deaths and in addition to the gate admissions and millions of dollars in donations, they raised around $90,000 this month in a Tampa Bay fund raiser. So I would assume money isn't an issue.
