Halloween came a few days early for some of the lions, tigers, and leopards at Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, Florida.
Just like the little ‘panthers’ that live with us, big cats are curious and require mental stimulation, too. So, treating them to holiday surprises is part of an ongoing enrichment program by the staff at Tampa’s Big Cat Rescue. In the video, you can see the rescue’s lack leopard, Jinx, tigers Andre and Arthur, lioness Nikita, and tigress Kali enjoying their pumpkins filled with chicken and cardboard haunted houses (proving that every cat – big or small – loves a cardboard box!)
Big Cat Rescue is home to about 70 big cats, including lions, tigers, leopards, cougars, bobcats and more.
