Rare tiger cub duo thrives at Tiger Creek | News
From Tiger Creek Wildlife Refuge:
The baby tigers that just arrived at Tiger Creek Wildlife Refuge are turning heads everywhere. Not just because they are adorable but also due to their unique stripes. Rather than the traditional black stripes, the golden tabby tigers display light brown striping and the snow whites have almost NO stripes at all.
The golden tabby cub is a male named Bon and the snowy white cub is a female named Mustang (Moo-stang). The 10-month old duo came to Tiger Creek from another sanctuary located in South Carolina.
“We’re very excited to have these rare cubs join our family,” says Terri Werner, Director of Operations for Tiger Creek. “They are adjusting well and we know that our organization is going to be the perfect forever home for these two!”
Tiger Creek is a rescue facility that is home to over 37 tigers and other big cats. Located just a few miles north of Tyler the sanctuary works to provide rescue, rehabilitation and a permanent home to big cats that have been abused, neglected or displaced.
They are open to the public so you can check these beautiful babies out for yourself. For driving directions and more information you can visit them on the web at www.tigercreek.org!
