MY STORY

Species: Tiger (Panthera tigris)
DOB: May 31, 2008
Sex: Male
Arrival Date: May 31, 2008

Rescue Story: In April of 2008, Turpentine Creek rescued two privately owned tigers Tigger G and Ziggy (now deceased). Upon their rescue, Ziggy was neutered because we are a non breeding facility.  A month later, we were very surprised when Tigger G gave birth to two tiger cubs BB King and Mack. Turpentine Creek raised the cubs, keeping BB King and Mack together until they were large enough to be released into their very own habitat. 

More about BB King: BB King was christened by Charles and Lori Ragsdell, who have been long-time supporters of the Refuge. Recently, BB King was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. Luckily, we caught it early and were able to treat it with Chemotherapy. B.B. King likes to lounge in the grass and nap as he is a very laid back tiger who enjoys observing everything around him. He occasionally will keep eyes on his neighbors and keepers in particular, watching with interest.
