Tiger World opens cougar exhibit

Tiger World, a non-profit animal conservation center, announces the grand opening of Cougar Mountain this weekend. This new habitat was developed by Facility Director Nick Rich to include expansive natural features, a waterfall and specialized glass to give visitors a unique viewing experience.
Tiger World moved quickly in order to provide new cougars Jake and Katrina a home when their private owner developed health issues and was no longer able to care for them. Working directly with N.C. Wildlife, Tiger World was able to obtain the first issued Endangered Species Permit for Cougars in North Carolina in over a decade.
These magnificent cats were once native to the Carolinas and are known by several names including cougar, puma, mountain lion and wildcat. Unfortunately the protected cougar no longer exists in the wild of North Carolina, except in zoos.
Tiger World is dedicated to rescue, rehabilitation and preservation of exotic animals. It is open to the public for educational guided tours and walkabout self-guided tours in Rockwell.
Tiger World provides a natural setting to see animals running, playing, swimming, eating, sleeping and interacting with their handlers.
