The Czech Ministry of Environment confiscated a one-year-old white tiger cub from the family home of a Czech MMA fighter, Karlos Vémola. He appealed against the confiscation but was denied on 2 November and after long negotiations, he handed over his cub on 5 December. Her life in the trade was over.
Her name is Ramba. She was transferred to Tierart, a Four Paws sanctuary in Germany, and lives under the loving care of Barbara van Genne, Director of the Wild Animal department of Four Paws.
“Tigers are not pets and any closer relationship between breeder and animal is not desirable and is detrimental to the animal,” says Petr Bejček, Director of the Czech Environmental Inspectorate.
Ramba will live near her sister Charlota, who was rescued earlier this July.
TIGERS in AMERICA helped fund their transportation to Tierart and medical care.
