Titan was rescued from a traveling circus. Richard Gilbreth, Executive Director, received a call from the USDA saying they needed to find a home for a male tiger because the Circus no longer wanted him. At the time, we just didn't know how fast we needed to act. The Circus was set up just 15 miles from the Sanctuary. Since it is a traveling Circus, they were leaving that night, so Richard and Roy, Maintenance Supervisor, headed that day to rescue this tiger. Titan was being kept in a 6.5x7'3" cage where all he could do was stand up and barely turn around. Needless to say, this tiger was ready to get out of those conditions. He loaded right up into his transfer cage and made the short trip to his new home. He now enjoys his spacious habitat consisting of trees, grass, perches, a pool and plenty of enrichment items to play with. This tiger will never in his life have to perform for anyone. He will be able to enjoy his stress-free life here at IEAS where he will receive the best quality care.
Titan is a very laid back tiger. He doesn't have a care in the world and just enjoys exploring his new home. He is very affectionate and greets visitors with a friendly chuff. He has benefited from our Emotional Enrichment Program.
