Neglected tigers arrive at Tampa's Big Cat Rescue (w/video)

TAMPA — Three tigers named Keisha, Kimba and Zeus arrived at Big Cat Rescue on Wednesday evening after a 22-hour trip from New York to Tampa.

The tigers — 14, 19 and 17 years old, respectively — were rescued from JNK's Call of the Wild Sanctuary in Sinclairville, N.Y. A fourth died before it could be rescued.

The trip was arranged by Florida-based Loving Friends Transport. Big Cat Rescue is the world's largest accredited sanctuary dedicated entirely to abused and abandoned exotic cats.
