January 20, 2018 (Alpine) – Lions, Tigers in Bears in Alpine is having a contest to name its newest resident:  a recently rescued white tiger cub. 

Here are the choices:

NOLA: Short for New Orleans, Louisiana, where she was rescued from.

MISSY: By chance, two of the women in Louisiana who were key in helping to rescue the cub are named Missy. We propose this name in their honor.

ZOE: In honor of a longtime, dedicated supporter of LTB who works tirelessly on behalf of captive big cats and exotic animals. 

CHARLIE: Suggested by LTB supporter Sundi, who won last year's auction package at Wild in the Country to join Bobbi on this life-saving rescue.

SASSY: LTB volunteers use this word quite a bit to describe her playful, spunky nature!
