Walking with Tigers

While on vacation in New Zealand, my husband and I visited a wildlife sanctuary dedicated to the preservation of endangered species of big cats called Zion Wildlife Gardens. We were walked by a beautiful tiger throughout the preserve, which is now closed to the public. We were fortunate enough to spend time with a wise and skilled tiger handler named Dalu before his death from a tiger attack. It’s unlikely I will ever walk this close to a big cat again, and am grateful for the memorable experience with such an amazing creature. Our love of big cats is now fulfilled by our three Savannahs, who provide plenty of entertainment and wild cat antics in the safety and comfort of our home.
