Lions and Tigers – Assiniboine Park Zoo

Even though I really dislike the enclosures that the Lions and Tigers are kept in at the Assiniboine Park Zoo, I always have to visit with these beautiful big cats each time I go there.  I didn’t get any Tiger pictures, but I did get some of one of the Asian Lions.  The other Lion was pacing too much to get a picture and the Tigers were in hiding.

Last night I had the tv news on to catch some information on another subject when I saw that a large donation had been made to the zoo for the purpose of building new and larger enclosures for both the Lions and the Tigers.  I am thrilled and by the sounds of it these will be built immediately with at least one of them being ready late this fall.

You can read the news release here.  There is no mention of the Leopards and Cougars, but I hope they will also have new and much larger enclosures soon.

It is almost time for Chester and I to take our walk along the Red River.  I am surprised I haven’t seen any ducklings or goslings on our walks yet.  Maybe today.  🙂

After that it is time for Africam and then work.  Have a great day.
