Tigers at Black Beauty Ranch

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.
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, sisters Natalia and Anastasia were the first to step into the facilityís new 5-acre big cat habitat.
In this image, in the new habitat, Natalia (left) rubs against Anastasia in their typical headbutt greeting. The two are fiercely independent at times and very bonded at others.
