The American true crime documentary Netflix 2020 is hardly a slip up on most TV screens, but some of the animals are still around. In particular, a male tiger rescued from Tiger King Park in Thackerville, Oklahoma, was rescued by the Crown Ridge Sanctuary in St. Genevieve, Missouri.
You may have been one who got swallowed up on the Netflix series ‘Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness’. “Most couldn’t wait to see what was going on behind the scenes between Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin until the next episode.
In real life, the St. Genevieve Tiger Sanctuary worked with others and the US Department of Justice to save 69 big cats. In one story from fox2now.com there were a variety of cats that were meant to be found including:
“Lions, tigers, lion-tiger hybrids, and a jaguar.”
According to the article, the removal of the cats was due to “ongoing violations of the Endangered Species Act” at Jeff and Lauren Lowe’s facility.
The Crown Ridge Sanctuary staff and veterinary team are treating the tiger. It is in quarantine and is currently being monitored.
Crown Ridge Tiger Sanctuary Operations Manager John Madigan said in the article:
“… these big cats have been safely removed and moved to prestigious sanctuaries like ours, where they will receive adequate veterinary care, nutrition, shelter, enrichment and living space while the court decides what comes next.”
On the Crown Ridge Sanctuary website, the mission statement includes:
As a true sanctuary, we do not buy, sell, breed or trade any of our animals. We believe they deserve to live the rest of their lives in a healthy and caring environment.
