  1. I’m glad these tigers are getting the life they deserve

  2. This does my heart good this morning TY ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Carols tigers need to go there as well one day!!!

    • BCR is one of less than 20 sanctuaries in the United States acceddited by the global federation of animal sanctuaries. say what you want about Carole, but BCR is an internationally recognized big cat sanctuary.

    • @AnnieAdelia did you saw the documentary? Their cages are 1/4 of Joe’s tigers in comparisson! She is just banking on the poor cats!

      Why? They’re already at a sanctuary, why would they go to another one?

      Luthien BCR charges $32 for a tour that they offer once a year as a fundraising event for the sanctuary. If you watch their videos you would see that their cages are massive, and each tiger gets their several hundred sq ft to themselves, including foliage and places to hide if they want to be alone. The small cages they showed in tiger king are actually just the lockouts, which are small corners within the larger cage where the animals can be closed off with a sliding door where they’re fed or given medical care. The point is so that the staff and volunteers are able to clean their water bowls and leave their food out for them safety while the door is closed, and also where they can provide medical attention for the cats.

      Yeah, their newest video shows just how massive the cages are! How are they smaller than Joe’s? His cages are the size of a shed while BCR cages are bigger than a school!

    Splendid news. And love that they have water, tigers love to swim!

  4. 2:21 thats a CHONKY boi!

  5. I’m so happy to see these animals receiving the treatment they deserve. It makes me cry.

  6. What about Carole Baskin’s tigers?

      DeVantier they can’t be in a zoo because they’re extremely inbred. BCR is a sanctuary, they have big cages and places to hide if they’re overstimulated, and are well fed, and receive medical care. If you watch the BCR channel on youtube, their cages are massive, they have several acres full of foliage. Zoos can’t really take in these tigers because giving extremely inbred animals a place to live for the duration of their lives is not something they do.

      What about her husband lol

    • jerrome ching | May 3, 2020 at 7:15 PM | Reply

      I think everyone in your comment section has kind of gotten the wrong idea of what we or I am thinking. Carol could be suspected of killing her husband by feeding the tigers. Evidence suppose suspect tigers.

      @Raul Ruiz de Velasco can we trust the news?

    • jerrome ching | May 3, 2020 at 7:17 PM | Reply

      until tigers suspect zero % of human DNA carol will be found guilty until then but not for me to say but the authorities

  7. Well, that’s 39. He had over 200.

    • Did they spay/neuter the tigers?

    • @Jody Wagner When Joe had them, hell no. His whole business plan was breeding them. Afterwards I have no idea or if its even legal to spay and neuter them if they are endangered? That would be interesting to know actually. I do see in the related videos list next to this as I type that Jeff Lowe and his wife have a video on youtube titled “we live with 220 lions and tigers” So it looks like they still have most of them or have bred more.

  8. .. so wonderful that these tigers are finally given a true paradise outside like they deserve! 😊💜🐅

    Tigers are one of the most beautiful animals ever created!

  10. Omg that goodness for good people like this to save an endangered species!

    The tigers are free now and the “”tiger king” is incarcerated. How befitting…👍🏽

    Good to see that the innocents in “Tiger Kings” clusterfuck of a story got their happy ending!

    • Its not that happy, the zoo is still there and operating. It is just being ran by that scuz ball Jeff Lowe instead. Who from the looks of it really doesn’t give a crap about the animals except how he can use them to make money or get laid. These are just the tigers Joe got rid of or took with him when Jeff took over.

    I bet those babies are so happy.

  14. This made me feel a little better. At least some of those poor tortured tigers are living a better life

    This is a beautiful sanctuary unlike Carol’s

    I’m here after joe exotic. Glad to know this many got in jail. I seen he was heartless pulling those cubs out with a metal rod like a punk.

  17. What relief, they are safe and enriched at least as much a true professionals can provide.

    Its incredible that this was allowed to happen at all, and totally against any principles of zoos. Thank God that this lunatic is behind bars and the tigers are well cared for. Thanks to the wildlife animal sanctuary. Well done from a supporter in Australia.

    Altleast there is a happy ending for these tigers. Sadly there’s 1000’s still roaming in the states who are unable to enjoy those pleasures.
