Mizzou Night at the Wild Animal Sanctuary

In this Year of the Tiger, the Rocky Mountain Tigers are celebrating by learning more about Mizzou’s exotic and enhangered mascot. Join us at 5:00 PM MT Saturday, June 4, for an educational, family-friendly evening at the Wild Animal Sanctuary near Keenesburg.

Tigers have been exploited and abused both in the wild and captivity. Wild tigers have been brought to the brink of extinction, with fewer than 4000 remaining worldwide. In fact, more tigers live in captivity in the US than exist in the wild globally. Tigers can be found everywhere from shopping malls and roadside zoos to people’s backyards, basements and garages.

Right here in Colorado, the Wild Animal Sanctuary specializes in rescuing, rehabilitating, and providing tigers and other captive wildlife with a forever home within large acreage natural habitats so they can roam freely with others of their own kind.

About Our Event

The Rocky Mountain Tigers are subsidizing a limited number of tickets to the Sanctuary, which houses more than 100 tigers rescued from illegal and abusive situations – among them animals rescued from various characters from the Tiger King television series.

The walkways are accessible, so wheelchairs, scooters, strollers and wagons are welcome. And don’t forget your binoculars for the best view of the animals. Be sure to arrive between 4:30 and 5:00 PM to pick up your tickets. The event will go on, rain or shine, so plan accordingly.
