Big Cats Transported

Employees of Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge near Eureka Springs moved six tigers from the Riverglen Tiger Shelter near Mountainburg to Turpentine Creek after the Crawford County sheriff contacted the refuge to say Riverglen's owner could no longer properly care for the large cats. Turpentine Creek continues to search for homes for the remaining 28 large cats, which include 24 tigers, two leopards and two cougars. Sheriff Ron Brown said the large cats still at Riverglen pose no threat to the public. Riverglen owner Betty Young said she's unable to keep up with care of the large cats because of her failing health.
