Jellybean Tiger ~ 1997 - 2015 ~

On Friday, June 19th, Carolina Tiger suffered the loss of our beloved and most reknown resident Jellybean Tiger due to heart failure.

Jelly, you were the favorite of many children, an treasured experience for tour guests, an adored personality to volunteers, the darling of your adoptive parents; and, as the last big cat remaining from when they first came to Carolina Tiger, an end of an era for many long-term staff and volunteers- you were part of our first sense of awe when we were granted the privilege of working on behalf of big cats.

More details coming soon as we continue to work to end private ownership of dangerous wild animals.!

For the details, Read the Bill. If you have concerns, visit our Facebook page to review the ongoing discussion.
