“Selena was a very special tiger. By the time I met her, she was already of an advanced age, and she had been declawed much earlier in her life. Instead of living her life in pain and discomfort, she thrived due to the love and care she received at The Center for Animal Research and Education, as well as Antinol supplements. This photo was taken just days after she turned 21 years old, which was something I had to verify after being stalked by a very active and playful tiger that day.”
