Thursday, May 27, 2021
ALBION, IN - A northeast Indiana non-profit animal sanctuary is now home to some big cats rescued from the "Tiger King" (Jeff Lowe).
Black Pine Animal Sanctuary, a nonprofit that houses more than 100 displaced and captive-raised exotic animals, has taken in four of the 68 tigers seized from the owners known for the popular Netflix show, “Tiger King” (Jeff and Lauren Lowe).
The Justice Department recently ordered the “Tiger King” owners to hand over the animals amid alleged violations of the Endangered Species Act and the Animal Welfare Act.
Leaders at Black Pine said they've been working closely with the U.S. Department of Justice to make a new home for the big cats this week.
The sanctuary is offers staff-guided tours by reservation Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday through the summer.
