Get your buttered popcorn. It's slide show time.
The Center for Animal Research and Education in Bridgeport, Texas is home to some amazing large cats and the dedicated people who love them. Some are the product of misguided humans who purchased these felines through illegal channels and realized, as they grew, they were ill-equipped to raise a wild cat. Really? Ya think? Some came from bankrupt zoos across the nation. Some were left behind due to injury or blindness or other in-bred deformities by traveling circuses. These highly-trained veterinarians and caregivers ask for nothing more than donations to walk you around their sanctuary and get you closer than you've ever been to these majestic animals. What an amazing way to spend a morning.
Now that you've had a chance to enjoy the kitties and the popcorn, I feel compelled to tell you that tiger piss smells like buttered popcorn. Only worse.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
