Two White Tigers And Two Bears Rescued Thursday In Texas From Owners Housing Them Illegally

A white tiger and a snow-white tiger, along with two bears were seized late last week according to In-Sync Exotics, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to the rescue of neglected, abused and unwanted exotic felines.

On the organization’s Facebook page, it explained the situation and shared the good news that the tigers, named Assad and Zahra were relocated to their new home at the In-Sync Exotics’ sanctuary located in Wylie, TX. The bears were transported to Frank Buck Zoo in Gainesville, TX.

A joint operation between In-Sync Exotics, Texas Parks and Wildlife, and the local county Sheriff’s office, who reportedly seized the animals from owners who did not have the proper permits and were housing them illegally.

 

“Both tigers will be in mandatory quarantine for 30 days. Their quarantine area is located in the sanctuary’s on-site veterinary clinic where staff veterinarian, a veterinary technician and keepers will provide the highest quality of medical care to diagnose and treat any issues they have currently,” noted the post, “as well as maintain their health throughout the rest of their lives.”

Formed in 2000, In-Sync Exotics maintains an extensive Community Outreach Program through which it educates the public on the unique attributes and characteristics of its residents; the realities of irresponsible and or illegal exotic wild animal ownership and captive breeding; and the need for stronger and enforceable legislation against those who abuse exotic wild animals.

“Our goal is to rescue mistreated and or displaced cats and provide them with a lifetime of excellent care is an expensive labor of love.” “It costs $168,000.00 a year to feed our animals and it can be upwards of another $150,000.00 for veterinarian care.” Plus, we have the added expenses for utilities, enrichment, equipment and supplies.
