New baby at EFRC
The newest arrival at EFRC is this 6 week old tiger.

You can visit him.

The new baby doesn't yet have a name.  He's just been rescued from a facility in Flat Rock, IN, which is being closed down by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.  As of this afternoon, EFRC is still looking for someone to make a $500 donation to earn the right to name the little guy.  For the next few weeks (while he's still small enough to be safe), visitors to EFRC can meet him for an additional $10 per person.  (The regular tour of EFRC is $10 for adults and $5 for kids.)  Everyone is free to go visit EFRC on their own.  If people in the C-U area are interested, I may be able to help arrange a ride and/or be your tour guide.  If you have questions, please ask!

Here's another shot of the little guy, before he went to sleep:

And here he is, demonstrating that he's almost but not quite small enough to fit through the 4" squares in the cage:

For your viewing pleasure, here's a picture of India, our white tiger.

Finally, here's a picture of Jagger eating a turkey in his new cage.  This isn't a very good picture, but it's important to me because Jagger has been waiting a long time for a better cage, and now he's in a better home.

Ain't that just great news? Do you have many tigers born there? I didn't think EFRC had an official captive breeding program.

Well, this wasn't THEIR OWN baby tiger; he is a rescued kid.

As msminlr said, this baby was rescued. We don't intentionally breed any animals; there have been accidents and we sometimes rescue babies or pregnant females. This is the first baby tiger we've had in a couple of years.
