• New iPhone App Aims To Prevent Big Cat Abuse


    Bengali, a male Bengal tiger, walks towards the gate of his enclosure as he waits to be transported to another location in the sanctuary. When he originally arrived at Big Cat Rescue shortly after retiring from being used as a circus act, they were told he could kill someone because he was so confrontational. He is said to be much happier now because of his improved surroundings.

    A new app called Tiger Selfie hopes to educate people about the abuse big cats endure and discourage people from paying breeders who sell tiger photographs. Fifty percent of proceeds from the app will go to wildlife sanctuaries like Big Cat Rescue.
