Tyger, tyger burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?
from The Tyger by William Blake
These animals are rescued and now live a life as close to normal as possible in the fantastic grounds of this sanctuary in Florida. Many have been bought as pets when they were cubs, others have been taken in from circuses. Here, one has to be quiet and treat them with dignity by giving them space.
They are awesome and I was privileged to be able to photograph this tiger.
