High Of The Tiger: Big Cats Get Five Acres Of Freedom (GALLERY)

(TIGERS/ANIMAL PICTURES/WILDLIFE CONSERVATION) Lions, tigers, and other big cats have grown increasingly more popular in the exotic pet trade. According to the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), there are anywhere between 5,000 and 7,000 tigers living in the U.S., but less than 400 of them are accounted for by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. Instead, tigers and other big cats are continuously found living in peoples' backyards, basements, and roadside zoos. The Fund for Animals and HSUS are working hard to solve this problem. Just recently, the HSUS saved four tigers and sent them to America's largest animal sanctuary in Texas, Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch. Three of the tigers, Anastasia, Natalia, and Gustavo, were rescued from an illegal roadside zoo in Mississippi, where they were forced to live in cruel conditions for many years without veterinary care. Alexander, the fourth tiger, was rescued from a private residence in Kansas after his owner abandoned him, leaving him and several other wild animals caged and without access to food or clean water. For the first time in their lives, the tigers will be living in a large, 5-acre home with natural vegetation and uninterrupted skies. Check out these four tigers embracing their new forever home in the heartwarming photos below. -- Global Animal
