Crown Ridge’s most recent rescue, Suvarna, belonged to a private owner in Georgia. When the owner decided to relinquish owner ship of his wild animals, Crown Ridge, IFAW, and Tiger Creek Wildlife Refuge stepped in to help find homes for these animals. Tiger Creek transported Suvarna to his forever home at Crown Ridge and transported a cougar to their sanctuary.
Although a little hesitant at first, Suvarna has adjusted well to his new home, sometimes with the help of some chicken treats.
Suvarna enjoys playing with barrels, relaxing in his pool, or gazing out over the sanctuary on the highest platform. At only 8 years old he is full of energy and always on the move. He is always eager to check out his enrichment items and plays with them often throughout the day. His favorite items seem to be anything he can bat around with his giant paws.
Suvarna was lucky enough to be rescued from a private owner. But what about all of the other pet tigers? Help ban the private possession of tigers by supporting The Big Cat and Public Safety Act.
