MASQUERADE BALL
We are proud to announce an exciting new event. On November 14, our first Paws and Claws Masquerade Ball will take place in Bloomington IN at the Indiana University Auditorium. Stay tuned for further details on our website, our FACEBOOK page and our monthly ENEWS.

BUTCHERING
People often ask questions about feeding our cats. Tour guides explain that we feed mostly cow and horse, along with deer, chickens, turkeys and rabbits. A skilled butcher can butcher a cow or horse in about fifteen minutes. The process begins by hanging the animal by its front leg. The head is removed first. The butcher then removes the three legs and concludes by making a cut down the chest and stomach. Although there are exceptions, the organs and the intestines are not typically fed out. These parts will go to the compost pile. After a few more cuts, the meat is then sent out to our BIG CATS for their enjoyment.

DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know lions snore? Did you know it is imperative that one be able to distinguish a snore from a growl when rescuing a lion? A snore occurs with a breath so the rescue crew has to determine if the sound comes on a breath or intermittently. The importance of this distinction could be life-saving. If the lion is snoring, he is asleep. If he is growling, he is awake. No one wants to rescue a lion that is awake.

CAMP ROAR 2015
Camp Roar 2015 was a roaring success this summer. Marie, Cadance, Emily, Samantha, Cloe, Breanna, Paige, Piper, Faith, Alex, Simon, Dom, Kody, Silas, Chelsea, Brooklyn, Nick, Maddy, Madeline, Landen and Moana enjoyed a fun-filled day of BIG CAT activities. They especially liked creating an enrichment activity for the tigers. This included using multiple cardboard boxes and lots of tape to create an animal that was then destroyed by our two-year –old tiger cubs.
