Big cats get big treats at Big Cat Rescue in Tampa

After removing it from a tree, Reno the golden leopard gets a closer look at a papier-mache Easter egg treat Thursday morning at Big Cat Rescue in Tampa. Volunteers created the treats filled with scents like cinnamon for each of the more than 100 cats. The treats filled with spices or meat provide important enrichment and mental stimulation. Big Cat Rescue is the largest accredited sanctuary in the world dedicated entirely to abused and abandoned big cats.
