What a great way to spend a
Sunday. My friend, Peter Klose is the program director for Jungle
Cat World in Orono, Ontario and a small group of us were invited
over to get a behind the scenes look at the zoo where they have
just about every species of big cat you can imagine. They are
also quite involved in breeding programs for these animals, many
of which are endangered in the wild. The big star of the day
was the 3 month old tiger cub. She might be small, but her teeth
and claws were plenty sharp!
There were plenty of other
wild animals to experience as well and we even got to feed the
adult lions, leopards, jaguars and tigers.
