The Rescued Tigers Swim For The First Time

Planet Earth is a wonderful place, and great glory goes to all the majestic animals that live on it. Unfortunately, many of them have become extinct. And for the most part, people have to be held accountable. Tigers are also on the endangered species list. It is estimated that about 3.900 of these majestic animals remain in the world. But there are still many people who want to save these beauties. One of them is the owner of Carli and Lily.

These poor tigers are one of 19 exotic animals confiscated by a bankrupt institution in New York. They were rescued from neglected and extremely dirty conditions. Fortunately, they now have a new home at the Safe Haven Rescue Zoo, a GFAS-approved wildlife sanctuary located in a very remote area of ​​Nevada. However, it is very hot here, so the pool is desperately needed. And it was a great opportunity for Carli and Lily to see what swimming in the pool is like.

“For the first time, they will be able to experience what swimming is like,” said Kelly Donithan, IFAW Wildlife Rescue Operator. “We live in a controversial world where there is too little wildlife roaming the desert and too much wildlife suffering behind bars. It is not conservation. Keeping big cats or other wild animals thousands of miles away from their home territory for entertainment, photography, or personal possession will not increase populations in the wild, nor will the public truly educate themselves about what a tiger (or any other wild animal) really is. ”

The moment these majestic creatures first entered the pool was captured on camera, and the moment was nothing more than a melting heart. Their reaction speaks for itself!

“The rescued tigers Carli and Lily now have a new home at the Safe Haven Rescue Zoo,” the video captions reads. “Located in a high desert valley protected by high mountain peaks on all sides, Safe Haven is an oasis.”
