Collins Zoo Rescue

In January 2012, following an undercover investigation that revealed inadequate care for the animals and safety concerns for the public, The Humane Society of the United States helped rescue 11 exotic animals—including three tigers—from a roadside zoo in Mississippi. In this image, a sedated Natalia is carried to a transport cage during the rescue.
The tigers were taken to the Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch, operated by HSUS affiliate The Fund for Animals, in Murchison, Texas. Their personalities began to emerge with daily enrichment, such as playing with oversize Boomer balls and rubbing nontoxic childrenís paint across a canvas with their face and paws. And this August, Natalia and her sister Anastasia were the first to step into the facilityís new 5-acre big cat habitat.
To see the tigers enjoying their new digs, check out a special live TigerCam event on Oct. 2nd at
