MY STORY

Species: Tiger (Panthera tigris)
DOB: March 16, 2007
Sex: Female
Arrival Date: March 16, 2010


Rescue Story: On December 7, 2009 Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge received an email from a man representing a facility formerly open to the public. The email explained how the facility had to part with 7 big cats, a black bear, and a coatimundi in order to be eligible to reopen to the public. Accessing the three tigers (Chuff, Abigail, and Athena) would be challenging, so the decision to anesthetize them and physically carry them to the rescue trailer was determined to be the safest for all involved. When they first came to the Refuge, Abigail and her siblings were very aggressive and difficult to manage. With a lot of time and incredible effort from our team, they were able to settle down a bit.  They are still some of the more aggressive animals we have on the Refuge, but they are much more tolerant (probably because they now live a life of sanctuary rather than exploitation). 

More about Abigail: As her siblings settled down, Abigail remained more on the aggressive side and so she was separated from them. Despite that, she is a very playful cat that loves enrichment and playing with all of her toys - often putting on a show for small crowds.
