Zeus, a Bengal tiger born in 1998, came to The Wildcat Sanctuary in 2010 with a number of other big cats after a facility in Texas that housed over 400 animals went bankrupt. The collapse of this large operation sent lions, tigers, bears and primates to sanctuaries all over the country. The owner of TWS was instrumental in finding true sanctuary placement for many of these animals as well as rescuing as many of them as TWS could support.
Zeus is a very special tiger, his goofy personality can make anyone smile. He was born in captivity, hand raised and has only ever known people. While he has lived next to other tigers, he really isn’t too sure about them. He is very chatty with people though and often moans and chuffs to anyone in hearing range.
