Tigers from Missouri Sanctuary Arrive in Colorado

CALHAN, Colo. (AP) Ten tigers from an animal sanctuary in Missouri that closed after a volunteer was mauled are at their new home in Colorado.

The cats arrived yesterday at the Serenity Springs Wildlife Center in Calhan. The center will receive a total of 15 tigers from Wesa-A-Geh-Ya in Warrenton in Missouri.

That center closed after a volunteer lost part of his leg in a tiger attack last month. The tiger was killed.

Serenity Springs Wildlife Center staff plan to return to Missouri next weekend for more tigers. Other sanctuaries also accepted animals from Wesa-A-Geh-Ya.
