An exotic animal sanctuary and educational facility in Alpine, CA

Situated on 93 acres outside of Alpine, California, on the edge of the Cleveland National Forest, Lions Tigers & Bears is an animal sanctuary for rescued big cats, bears and other exotic animals in beautiful San Diego County. Nestled in a scenic landscape of majestic oak trees, meadows, and rolling hills, our sanctuary offers an idyllic, natural habitat for more than 60 animals who have been neglected and abused in captivity across the country.
 
The ranch provides a peaceful refuge for the animals to live with dignity in a safe, nurturing environment, where they can run, play, swim and enjoy fresh air. Your membership, sponsorship, and support mean the world to us and ensure the animals get a second chance at a better tomorrow.
 

Celebrate in the Natural Beauty of the Ranch

Gather with family, friends and colleagues at Lions Tigers & Bears. Our animal sanctuary and ranch offer beautiful outdoor spaces, grassy lawns and meadows, and a covered pavilion surrounded by the animals who call Lions Tigers & Bears home.
 
The pristine landscape offers a natural canvas for designing the perfect wedding ceremony, reception, birthday party, corporate event, or team-building retreat. Celebrate and come together in a serene country setting with picturesque views that inspire romance, adventure and the spirit of awareness.

Donor Spotlight

"When I was invited by friends to go visit Lions Tigers & Bears three years ago, I was very skeptical. I am NOT a fan of zoos. I am not a fan of animals in captivity of any kind. And even after I was assured that this was not a zoo I still had my doubts."

LTB's youngest bobcat ? sure has come a long way since he was first rescued after being dropped off at a local pet hospital as an emaciated and dehydrated baby? ⠀ What word would you use to describe Diego?
Don’t you just love Maddie’s happy face?? ⠀ Purchased as a pet and nearly sold to a canned hunt, this 18 year old black bear was rescued six years ago. ⠀ Thank you for supporting lifetime care for rescued animals like Maddie? Knowing she is safe and cared for gives us all a great reason to smile ?
Feisty + fearless, Nola ? Moka, the happy youngster? stalking queen, Crystal ? Maverick, the charmer ? beloved old man, Hank ? and Tabu the “OG” beauty of LTB. ⠀ Each of these tigers has their own rescue story - but they all share a common background as victims of the exotic animal trade. ⠀ Today is International Tiger Day, a day devoted to raising awareness for tiger conservation. And while a mere 3,900 tigers are left in the wild – where tigers belong❣️ – an estimated 5,000 to 7,000 tigers are kept captive in backyards and roadside zoos in the U.S. alone. ⚠️Actual numbers may be higher, since there is no federal tracking program for privately owned big cats. ⠀ One of the greatest misconceptions about these tigers is that breeding them helps conserve tigers in the wild? This couldn't be further from the truth. ⠀ The majority of tigers in the U.S. are kept by private owners and roadside zoos - many participate in rampant breeding, further exploiting the big cats through cub petting encounters. ⠀ These tigers are “generic” tigers (bred across 2 or more subspecies) and have NO conservation value because they’re not bred according to the Species Survival Plan. ⠀ In fact, only 250 of the 5,000 to 7,000 captive U.S. tigers are pure-bred subspecies (kept in AZA accredited zoos). ⠀ Fortunately, there are real sanctuaries like LTB to provide a glimmer of hope. Currently providing lifelong refuge to six rescued tigers, LTB has rescued hundreds of tigers across the U.S. ⠀ With your help – together we can do even more to protect tigers. ⠀ ❌Please don’t pay to hold or play with tigers. It’s always cruel for the animals and doesn't support real conservation efforts. ⠀ ❌Please don’t pay to watch tigers in circuses or performances. Tigers are wild animals not entertainers. ⠀ ✅Call your representatives and urge them to support the Big Cat Public Safety Act - which will limit private ownership of big cats and end cub petting (link in profile). ⠀ ✅Sign up for LTB’s newsletter and visit our website to stay informed. ⠀ ✅Donate, visit, volunteer + share information to raise awareness. ⠀ ❤️Thank you for taking a stand to support tigers this International Tiger Day.
Are you hanging with your pride?this Sunday Funday? ⠀ Rescued lions Louie?,Arusha & Zulu ? Keeper Brian
Happy birthday beautiful boy!? ⠀ We’re celebrating not just a birthday today - but Moka’s rescue - and a life free from abusive exploitation. ⠀ Moka was lucky - finding lifetime refuge at an accredited sanctuary - but many more tigers bred for the exotic animal trade are not. Thank you for following Moka’s journey + for continuing to support LTB’s critical rescue and education work. ⠀ Your donations, membership, visits, volunteer efforts and support truly make a difference and ensure that animals like Moka live with dignity and respect. ⠀ Will you consider a donation of $27 today to support Moka’s lifetime care at LTB?❤️ it costs over $10K/year - or $27/day - for basic food and care for a tiger like Moka. Your donation at any level keeps Moka and tigers like him safe. Swipe ? for adorable baby Moka video taken by @sdzsafaripark. Do you want to send Moka a birthday message?

Happy Caturday?from rescued tiger Moka! Moka’s 1st birthday at LTB is just one week away - 7/27 during the 10 am visit. Are you coming to watch him open his presents?? ⠀ Slide?to see a baby pic of Moka after he was first rescued from animal traffickers - ?@drmonicaharms. Do you remember when Moka was that small?!
Who’s the real Lion King of LTB??? Bakari, Louie or too close to call?
?Your donations in action!✨ Thank you bear-y much for donating to Liberty's birthday fundraiser and making her bday wish come true? The new bear ? culvert has been installed and the bears are loving it!!! ❤️ LTB is also working on adding a new den in Liberty’s safety bedroom. Your donation at any level will help us finish this much needed work for the black bears?? Thank you!
Can you feel the love? for rescued animals like Louie? ⠀ The new Lion King movie? launches this week and LTB – home to real life Lion King and retired performance lion, Louie? – is thrilled to see the film industry move away from using live animals in movies. ⠀ Performance animals lead difficult, unnatural lives. Used for as long as they’re profitable, many of these animals disappear once they’re no longer useful because there is no federal tracking program for privately-owned big cats like lions. ⠀ Only the lucky ones – like Louie? – find placement at an accredited sanctuary like Lions Tigers & Bears. ⠀ @peta announced today that they are sponsoring Louie in honor of Lion King director @jonfavreau who made this film without using a single real animal? and we hope this will inspire others to donate to support lifesaving care for animals like Louie. ⠀ Lions, tigers, bears and other wild exotic animals don’t belong on stage and now thanks to CGI technology there is no reason at all to use live animals for performances ever again. ⠀ Thank you to everyone involved in producing this film for embracing technology and preserving animal welfare. And thank you for donating to provide life-saving care for Louie and other rescued animals in need! ⠀ If you’re interested in sponsoring a specific rescued animal at LTB please see the link in profile. Your donation at any level makes a lifesaving difference for animals like Louie??? ⠀ ? @drmonicaharms
It's hard to look beautiful with your tongue out? but rescued lioness Arusha pulls it off - don't you think? ? ? @kathleenreeder
Are you excited for the new Lion King movie? ? ? If there was a CGI version of rescued lion Bakari, who would you cast to play him???
Rescued bobcat RJ says a nap and a hammock are the purr-fect Sunday combination? Do you agree?
On a scale from 1 to 10 how awesome is this throwback video of rescued white tiger Nola playing in the water?? This girl always has SO much fun with H2O? ⠀ Just a reminder: Please don’t pay to see white tigers in performances or pay to hold or play with tiger cubs. There are no legitimate accredited breeding programs for white tigers. White tigers have no conservation value — they are bred solely in captivity for exploitation. ⠀ White tigers are not a separate species - they’re Bengal tigers and mixed-breed tigers that have been inbred to carry a very rare recessive gene for white fur. This inbreeding causes white tigers to suffer from extremely high rates of many congenital health problems including facial deformities and vision problems. ⠀ If you want to see a white tiger and learn more about them, visit a true sanctuary like LTB where proceeds from your visit support lifelong care for rescued animals like Nola? ⠀ ?Volunteer Alyssa
How would you describe Albert’s Friday vibe? ? ??
Can you imagine living each day in fear, kept captive in a tiny cage, while people yell at you and shake you? ⠀ That was Clarence’s reality for over a decade at an Ohio fur farm, where this bobcat was used for his urine which was then sold to hunters. ⠀ To harvest his urine, the fur farm owners would scare it out of him each day – shaking Clarence's cage, shouting at him and intimidating him until he would urinate. These daily sessions traumatized Clarence, exposing him to ongoing stress. ⠀ When he was rescued by LTB in 2015, Clarence was understandably cautious. It took him a while to adjust to his new surroundings and trust that no-one was going to hurt him anymore. ⠀ Over the past four year, Clarence has transformed? Now he spends his days watching the birds and napping. He enjoys catnip as well as a good treat. He’s also forged a strong bond with fellow rescued bobcat Mia. The two can often be found hanging out together. ⠀ Clarence no longer lives a life dominated by fear. He is safe thanks to you❤️ ⠀ LTB couldn’t save animals like Clarence without your help. Your donation at any level truly makes a difference for Clarence and all the rescued animals.
Happy whisker Wednesday from a very focused Conga ? What do you think she is stalking?... ⠀ ? @kathleenreeder
Can you touch your tongue to your nose?!? Happy #TOT from rescued white lion Louie?? ⠀ ?Volunteer Alyssa
Can Tabu? scare Monday away?? ✅ yes ✅ no ✅ or hope so!
Surprise – Moka's taking a turn in the big pool! He + Nola? were just rotated into a different habitat as part of their ongoing enrichment. ⠀ Exploring new spaces like this provides a physical and mental challenge ? for captive animals. ⠀ Moka is a more cautious tiger? He needed a day to adjust, but now he’s jumping and swimming like a champ? ⠀ Confiscated at the US/MX border from animal traffickers when he was just weeks old, LTB’s youngest rescue “cub” is growing fast!? ⠀ Moka will be celebrating his FIRST full year at LTB on Saturday, July 27— will you come join the fun?? ⠀
Happy Caturday!? Are you ready to paw-ty??
Paws up? if you want to spend the holiday #weekend poolside ?‍♀️ like rescued grizzlies Albert?+ Cherry ??
Happy 4th of July?? + HBD Liberty! ⠀ Can you believe it’s been 10 years today since this wild-born ? cub was saved + became the very first rescued bear at LTB? ⠀ Come celebrate Liberty during the 10 a.m. visit tomorrow → Friday, July 5. Book online and watch Liberty enjoy some special birthday enrichment? ⠀ There's still time to make a donation in honor of Liberty's birthday to fund the new culvert in the black bear habitat. Your donation at any level - $5, $10, $20 or more – will help make Liberty's bday✨ wish✨ come true!❤️♡? ⠀ What goodies do you think we should we put in Liberty’s cake this year??
Are you looking for a way to put your time + talent to good use?!??? Join our amazing team of volunteers. Volunteers are the heart and soul of our work here at the sanctuary, providing essential help in so many areas — from checking-in visitors, to food prep, and even leading visits. ⠀ Do you know someone who might be interested in volunteering??Please tag them in the comments. (Volunteer link in profile for more info) ⠀ And please help us thank? all of the incredible volunteers - like Michele here - for everything they do to support the rescued animals❤️ ⠀ If you’d like to watch this entire video - it’s on the Volunteer page of the LTB website at lionstigersandbears.org
What do you think Maddie is smiling about today??? ⠀ Bears smile much like humans do, for their own bear reasons based on what makes them feel happy. ⠀ Originally purchased as a pet for a child, Maddie was nearly sold to a canned hunt and spent years confined to a small cage with no space to play or roam and never setting foot on green grass?or dirt. ⠀ Now she spends her days exploring the multi-acre black bear habitat, playing with her bestie Liberty ?rolling in the grass, munching her favorite snack - romaine lettuce? - and cooling off in the pool. ⠀ Maddie has many reasons to smile now thanks to you. Thank you for continuing to support LTB and putting this big bear grin on Maddie’s sweet face.❤️??? ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
Does Bakari look ready to take on Monday?? #thatface ?
Just add water ? and rescued white tiger Nola is a happy girl? what’s the #1 ingredient in your purr-fect #Caturday?
Will you help make Liberty’s birthday? wish come true? ⠀ She might be full-grown, but she’ll always be our baby? This wild-born bear nearly lost her life as a young cub. Now she’s celebrating a milestone birthday and she needs your help. ⠀ Like many yearlings who leave their mothers in search of food + territory, Liberty learned to find food entering campgrounds as a young cub? When wild animals are no longer afraid to enter populated areas, they’re considered habituated. Sadly this conflict often costs wild animals their lives. ⠀ Fortunately, officials reached out to LTB for lifetime placement and with your support, this wild-born baby became the very first rescued bear at the sanctuary on July 4, 2009?? Liberty literally put the “bear” in Lions Tigers and Bears❤️ ⠀ Thanks to you, Liberty has grown these past 10 years into the happy, healthy bear she is today. The black bear habitat is now home to five other rescued black bears. As the baby of the group, Liberty stirs up some trouble – sneaking into all the other bears bedrooms to snoop for goodies or look for a better napping spot? It’s not uncommon to find her sleeping in Delilah’s bedroom. Liberty has also forged a strong friendship with Maddie and the two can often be found playing and rolling in the grass together, sitting at the picnic table? or taking an afternoon dip in the pool. ⠀ Liberty and all the black bears desperately need an additional culvert in their habitat. These giant cement culverts provide essential shade during the summer, cozy dens ? during the winter and an overall fun spot to nap, lounge and play. Your donation at any level will make Liberty’s birthday wish come true!❤️ ⠀ Every day is a gift for Liberty. She’s able to roam the green grass under blue skies in open space thanks to you? Please come celebrate her double-digit birthday at LTB on Friday, July 5 during the morning visit and please consider a donation at any level to support her lifetime care and new culvert!
Landmark moments take on even greater meaning when they support the lifelong care of majestic rescued sanctuary animals✨ ⠀ Thank you ? Cy and Kim for celebrating your wedding with the animals. We wish you a lifetime of happiness.?? and thanks to @equinoxphoto for sharing these beautiful images? ⠀ Do you know someone searching for a very special venue? Tag them in the comments. We can't wait to get started planning for your special day??? ⠀
Wild-born mountain lion Conrad prefers to keep a low profile? Mountain lions generally avoid humans, but Conrad was found roaming near an elementary school and picked up by officials as a public safety threat. LTB rescued him to save him from euthanasia. ⠀ #DYK that mountain lions have excellent vision?? They can't see in complete darkness, but these cats see detail in much lower light than humans. Their vision combined with razor sharp reflexes makes mountain lions skilled hunters. ⠀ Can you name any other animals with great night vision?? ⠀
Isn’t this behind-the-scenes peek at a very content Tabu ? purr-fection? ⠀ Tabu is our most sensitive rescued tigress. She doesn’t love a lot of new people or noise. We respect her needs and keep her in quieter habitats where she can enjoy her personal space - which makes moments like these even more special to share. ⠀ She’s fierce, beautiful and loves her privacy — is Tabu your spirit animal?? ⠀ ?Volunteer Alyssa ⠀
Louie is practicing his inner ☮️ - - - As a former circus ? lion, Louie’s no stranger to stress, but since his rescue he spends his days like this — soaking up the SoCal ☀️ and enjoying life w/out being forced to perform.

Hank needs your help. Of all the white tigers at LTB, Hank is the one with the most issues. You can see some just by looking at him. ⠀ Tigers are supposed to be long and lean? — but his blocky head and big shoulders don’t match his short legs and stout body. He's clearly cross-eyed - as are all white tigers. These vision and body shape issues cause white tigers to suffer from poor mobility along with many other serious health conditions. ⠀ When the keepers set out enrichment for Hank - it takes him much longer to find the goodies. He startles easily, often scared of his own tail. Due to the extensive inbreeding used to create white tigers — many suffer from severe and even fatal health impairments. ⠀ There are no legitimate accredited breeding programs for white tigers. White tigers are not a separate subspecies - they are inbred Bengal tigers and cross-bred tigers who’ve been bred to carry a rare recessive gene for white fur. White tigers have no conservation value - they’re bred solely in captivity for exploitation. ⠀ You can help protect tigers by never paying? to see white tigers at a facility that breeds, buys or exploits them. ⠀ After a lifetime trapped in the prison-like conditions of a tiger breeding mill, Hank shows us he is enjoying life at LTB, happily chuffing to his keepers each day and always ready to chow down on some yummy treats — even if it takes him a while to find them❤️ ⠀ When you donate to LTB - you support life-saving care for formerly exploited animals like Hank. ⠀ It costs $10,000/year for basic food and care for one of our big cats, and $15/day for Hank’s daily arthritis medication. Your donation today at any level provides critical care for Hank and all the rescued animals at LTB.

Lean in – Tabu has something to share...? ⠀ Did you know Tabu is the only animal living at LTB who was born? here? ⠀ We’re often asked: How can I tell if a sanctuary is legit? ⠀ If you want to ensure you are supporting an organization that prioritizes animal welfare and meets or exceeds standards of care, we always recommend you do your own research and ask questions → here are some things to look? for: ⠀ True sanctuaries: ✅Do not breed animals. A consistent and regular presence of cubs is a red flag?? ✅Do not buy, sell or trade animals. ✅Do not allow hands-on✋ encounters with lions, tigers, leopards, bears or other apex predators. No organization committed to animal welfare and/or conservation would ever allow this. ✅Provide a lifetime home for animals + meets each animal’s physical and mental needs. ⠀ Do you have any other tips to share?
LTB's smallest rescue cat is living in a big cat world? Do you have a Monday caption for Sadie?
Cougars, pumas, mountain lions - whatever name you use for these powerful cats – they sure are gorgeous? Agree or disagree? ✨✨✨
With legs?+ ears? for days + gorgeous markings, it's easy to see why people fall in ❤️ w/servals. They're also believed to be the most successful hunters in the cat world? ⠀ Sadly, these wild cats have gained popularity as "pets" - but servals are wild animals with wild ?instincts and behaviors to match their exotic looks. ⠀ Purchased as a pet, Denali was placed at a sanctuary when his family realized he was not the cat they had imagined. LTB rescued him, his bestie Sadie + many other animals when his previous sanctuary closed. ⠀ Super active, fast and ready for fun, Denali is wishing you a happy Caturday!? Are servals your favorite wild cat?
Is it too early for catnip??Keeper Rebekah set up some Friday fun for the rescued bobcats...
Show of hands?‍♀️who remembers when Moka was this tiny? ⠀ Confiscated at the US/MX border from animal traffickers who tried to pass him off as a domestic kitten? Moka was initially cared for by the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. ⠀ He was genetically tested and determined to be a hybrid/generic tiger, who does not meet conservation guidelines, so officials at CA Fish and Wildlife reached out to LTB for a lifetime home and Moka moved to his permanent home here last year. ⠀ Moka's had quite a journey in such a short time, and his story is important to protecting tigers everywhere. Bred for the exotic animal trade, these animals are often exploited, abused and even killed for parts. The lucky ones☘️ find placement at a qualified sanctuary like LTB. ⠀ Your visit, donations and support of LTB directly impact Moka and all the rescued animals who have nowhere else to turn. With your support, Moka will live out his life with dignity, respect and lifesaving care. ⠀ We're looking forward to celebrating Moka's one year anniversary this summer. Let us know in the comments if you have any ideas of how to celebrate Moka's first year at LTB.❤️??? ⠀ ?US Fish & Wildlife, US Customs & Border Protection, LTB ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
Who needs a nuzzle and a nap?
Maverick would like to remind everyone → he's a tiger?
Sugar Bear is greeting Monday with a smile? are you? ⠀ Bred specifically for a canned hunt, Sugar was saved by an employee who fell in love❤️ with his sweet personality + placed him at an unaccredited sanctuary. He spent years confined in small corn crib w/only access to concrete floors until the sanctuary lost funding and he was rescued by LTB in 2012. ⠀ When he first arrived, Sugar had to be coaxed out of his bedroom because he wasn't used to grass, dirt or open space☀️ – but it didn't take long and now you can see him out and about exploring the expansive black bear habitat each day. ⠀ What's putting a smile on your face this magnificent Monday??? ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
The Tetens Family surprised dad, Steve with an early Father’s Day present ? – a visit to LTB and an opportunity to feed one of the animals yesterday. Swipe ?to see which animal he chose ??? ⠀ LTB’s Feed a Wild One and Behind the Scenes encounters are a gift? for everyone involved. Strict safety measures keep everyone protected – while providing an opportunity to encounter amazing rescued animals in a way that genuinely supports critical lifesaving care❤️ ⠀ Participation is always optional for the animals who are fed a portion of their carefully measured daily diet. ⠀ Big tiger chuffs of thanks? to the Tetens for celebrating their dad while supporting all the rescued animals. And Happy early Father’s Day to Steve + dads everywhere! ⠀ Do you know a father who would enjoy a visit to LTB???? ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
This is pretty much Louie’s whole day?? Do you know anyone who sleeps as much as a lion?
Have you fallen in ? with Nola yet?
On a scale from 1? to→ 10? how awesome are happy munching bear noises? ⠀ Awesome Blossom is one of the oldest bears at LTB. She and Delilah were the last remaining residents of a failed roadside zoo in Oklahoma. ⠀ The owner could no longer afford to feed them and had resorted to feeding the bears candy from a nearby factory while making arrangements to sell them to a big game hunt ranch. ⠀ Fortunately with your support LTB was able to rescue both black bears in 2011 and it’s been all blue skies for them ever since.❤️ ⠀
Rescued lioness Zulu? had a small oral mass removed yesterday and received some additional dental work from Dr. Allison Woody, DVM, DAVDC and Dr. Ryan Sadler DVM, Diplomate ACZM. ⠀ A former circus lion, Zulu has been plagued with dental and health issues since her rescue in 2017. Like many performance animals, Zulu's canine teeth were previously filed down - which you can see in the close-up photo. ⠀ De-fanging and filing canine teeth is common in circus and performance animals – exposing animals to lifelong pain and recurring dental infections.? At 17, Zulu also suffers from liver + inflammatory bowel disease. Her weight fluctuates, but our veterinary team and keepers evaluate Zulu’s needs each day to ensure this beautiful lioness has the best life possible. ⠀ Zulu is doing great today☀️ and we are so thankful for your support. ⠀ Zulu’s life-saving care? wouldn’t be possible without you. The base cost for one veterinary procedure under anesthesia for one big cat is $1,200, one blood panel costs an average of $250 and pain medication for one animal for one day is $15. ⠀ Your donation at any level is essential. Thank you for ensuring Zulu and all the rescued animals receive the lifesaving care they need.❤️ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

Do you like to spend your Saturdays on the move?‍♂️ or in one favorite spot?? Active and agile, rescued leopard Conga can often be found climbing logs, branches + rocks or playing in her aerial skyway. Thankfully, she slowed down long enough to wish you a happy Caturday?

What word would you use to describe rescued black leopard Shadow? ? ⠀ Cats like Shadow warrant dignity and respect – unfortunately, this elderly leopard experienced neither for the majority of his life. ⠀ Badly declawed at his previous facility, he lived in constant pain, unable to walk normally on his mangled paws.  He was often sedated, so that he could be handled by people and used for photo ops. This took a toll on his overall health. ⠀ Since Shadow's 2016 rescue, LTB has worked to provide Shadow w/the best life possible.  He nearly died two years ago when his heart stopped during a  veterinary procedure + his health is a constant concern – but each day he greets his keepers happily with content leopard noises ? demonstrating his love for life and his incredible spirit. ✨ ⠀ Shadow's history of suffering can't be undone, but with your help, LTB will provide him with the care he needs to live the rest of his life with dignity and respect. ⠀ This lifesaving care is only possible because of you. Thank you for donating, supporting LTB and making a difference for Shadow + all of the animals in need.❤️ ⠀ ? @kathleenreeder

Crystal runs right over when visitors arrive. She loves people watching as much as people love to see her. ? Tiger fact Tuesday: white tigers aren't a separate subspecies of tiger. They're bengal tigers (and mixed breed tigers) who've been inbred for a rare recessive gene associated with white fur. Sadly this in-breeding causes white tigers to suffer high rates of serious health problems including vision impairment and facial malformations. ? There are no legitimate breeding programs for white tigers. All the white tigers you see today have been inbred in captivity and have no conservation value. ? If you want to see a white tiger or learn more about them, come visit Crystal, Hank & Nola at LTB - all three are white tigers rescued from exploitation. They'll be excited to see you + your visit will support lifesaving care for them and other big cats in need. ?Keeper Darby
Happy Meatball Monday!? Do you remember when this face made national news? ⠀ A wild-born California black bear, Meatball – aka "the Glendale Bear"– gained notoriety while scavenging for food ? + swimming in backyard pools ?‍♂️ in a neighborhood northeast of LA. ⠀ Fish & Wildlife captured and relocated Meatball 2x? – but there's a 3-strike rule for habituated bears (bears who aren't afraid to enter areas populated by humans). When Meatball returned a 3rd time?, the notorious wild bear faced euthanasia. ⠀ Fortunately, LTB was able to provide a lifetime home + the compassionate decision was made to save Meatball's life.❤️ ⠀ Whether you live near wild bears? or hike, camp⛺️, or visit bear country, we can all help protect wild bears! ⠀ Food is the number one reason bears venture into populated areas, so eliminating sources of food - including garbage? outside of your home + campsite is one way to help. ⠀ Do you have a favorite bear-proofing tip to share? ⠀ ⠀ ?Keeper Darby

Life was never easy for Zulu.? As a circus lion, she spent her days “on the road,” confined to small spaces, exposed to loud noises, forceful “training” + with no access to the peace, quiet and space lions naturally crave. Like many performance lions, Zulu’s canine teeth were filed down, exposing her roots to painful ongoing dental infections. ⠀ Fortunately Zulu’s life changed dramatically in 2017 when her trainer reached out to Lions Tigers & Bears seeking lifetime sanctuary for this aging lioness. ✨ ⠀ Zulu’s teeth required immediate attention. Thanks to your support, she's now received extensive dental work on all of her canines. Like all of our rescued animals, she requires ongoing dental treatment. Zulu also has an oral mass that we continue to monitor.? ⠀ At 17, Zulu suffers from liver disease + inflammatory bowel disease. Her weight fluctuates, but she is stable now, and our veterinary team and keepers evaluate Zulu’s needs each day to ensure this beautiful lioness has the best life possible. She is thriving in her multi-acre habitat alongside her sister, Arusha and companion, Louie.☀️ ⠀ Your ticket to Wild in the Country this Saturday, May 18 provides lifesaving care for Zulu and all the rescued animals.??? The base cost for one veterinary procedure under anesthesia for one big cat is $1,200, one blood panel costs an average of $250 and pain medication for one animal for one day is $15. ⠀ Costs like these add up, but so does your support.❤️ ⠀ Please buy your Wild in the Country ticket? today and make a difference for Zulu + other exotic animals in need, ☎️(619) 659-8078 x4, link in profile. ⠀ Can't make the event Saturday? Text WIC to 71760 and bid in the silent auction, which goes live Friday.

We also have some amazing auction items lined up - including Super Bowl tickets ? if you won tickets to the Big Game, who would you take with you?
The rescued animals have many cute and silly moments - which we love to share!❤️ but it’s important to remember how powerful and dangerous captive wild animals truly are. ⠀ Safety is at the core of everything we do at ??? and it’s one of the reasons we advocate against private ownership of apex predators like big cats and bears. ⠀ This week is Be Kind to Animals Week & it’s a great time to reach out to your representatives and urge them to support HR 1380, the Big Cat Public Safety Act, link in profile. ⠀ One way to show kindness for animals is by respecting and protecting them. No one needs a lion, tiger or bear as a backyard pet. ⠀ Do you think Bakari helps prove that point? ⠀ And please share in the comments if you have other suggestions about how to be kind to animals.

For Earth Day? and every day → Tiger populations in the wild are endangered and the captive breeding of generic tigers for the exotic animal trade is part of the problem. If you want to protect tigers around the world, please don’t ever pay ?to pet, hold, play, swim or pose with tiger cubs? – or any other apex predators (lions, leopards, bears, etc.). The animals used for these opportunities are exposed to devastating cruelty. There are no legitimate accredited sanctuaries or zoos that allow hands-on encounters with tigers or other apex predators. Brought to you by LTB’s rescued tigers Crystal, Tabu, Nola, Moka, Hank and Maverick. Please share this information to help raise needed awareness!!!

🚫🐅Debunk Series🐅 Did you know there are more tigers living in captivity (~5,000) in the United States than there are left in the wild (3,900)? How is this possible when tigers aren’t native to North America? Captive breeding and private ownership are the driving forces. Of these ~5,000 captive tigers, 95% are privately owned and have no conservation or genetic value due to poor breeding practices and dilution of the genetic pool. They could never be released to the wild. Less than 300 of these captive tigers reside at an AZA accredited facility, while the rest are kept by private owners, roadside zoos, and menageries. Tigers being kept by many of these private owners and facilities are over bred and exploited for the pure sake of profit. The lure of breeding tigers for traits not naturally found in the wild such as cross-breeds (tigons and ligers) and specific coat variations (white tigers, tabby tigers) cause debilitating health issues from inbreeding. However, to the private owners, it simply means more profits. Activities like cub petting, hands-on animal encounters and private ownership further perpetuate the ongoing cycle of abuse because they require a constant supply of cubs for the public to handle. To keep up with the demand, female tigers are typically subjected to speed breeding, where the cub is torn from the mother at just a few days old, and the female is able to get pregnant again not long after. However, once these cubs grow too large and unruly for handling, they are either disposed of or subjected to the same cycle of abuse as their tiger parents. The abuse of tigers in captivity can be stopped - and YOU can help! 👉Share this information with everyone you know. 👉Make a commitment to never participate in cub petting, tiger selfies or paid animal encounters. 👉Only support true, accredited sanctuaries, such as those accredited by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries or American Sanctuary Association. 👉Visit www.lionstigersandbears.org to Donate, Visit, Volunteer and Learn More!

Is this Nola or Crystal? Hint: you can see some of her best friend behind her🐯👀 Fact: Did you know that all white tigers are cross-eyed? Contrary to common belief, white tigers are not a separate species (or sub-species). All white tigers in captivity are a result of extensive inbreeding that is perpetuated by the exotic animal trade. This practice results in pervasive congenital health issues - like being cross-eyed. ⁠⠀⁣⁠⠀ ⁠⠀⁣⁠⠀ 😔 Reminder: please do not pay to pet, hold, or play with white tigers (or any tigers for that matter) in shows or displays! You can learn more about white tigers and the exploitation they face, by visiting an accredited sanctuary like Lions Tigers & Bears.🐾

🐻🎶"Look for the 'bear' necessities, the simple 'bear' necessities"🎶 Meatball has a forever home at Lions Tigers & Bears, but not every bear is that lucky. 💔⁠⠀ Meatball is a wild born California black bear, who was captured by California Department of Fish and Wildlife on August 29, 2012 after his third-strike meddling in the La Cañada Flintridge neighborhood northeast of Los Angeles. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ The Department has a three strike rule for habituated bears - bears not afraid to enter areas of human habitation. They can be captured and relocated twice, and on the third strike, they must be euthanized, or in very rare cases, re-homed to a sanctuary.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ We're so happy California Department of Fish & Wildlife made the compassionate decision to relocate Meatball rather than to euthanize him and that he can have a forever home at LTB! Want to make Meatball a part of your family? While it's never a good idea to have a wild animal as a pet, you can sponsor Meatball or one of his rescued friends at Lions Tigers & Bears! Your support provides for their daily needs, including food, shelter, and veterinary care in a safe and secure environment for the rest of their lives.

🐯💦Crystal is debating whether she wants to go for a dip or not! Did you know that, just like unique human fingerprints, no two tigers have the same stripes? Their stripe patterns are unique to each individual tiger and are not symmetrical on both sides!
Your favorite picnic bear is back! Can you guess what his favorite treat is? Hint: we had a special day dedicated to it this year!🐻🥜👀 Teddy is a Himalayan Black Bear and they are omnivores - meaning they will eat just about anything! In the wild, their diet consists of acorns, nuts, fruit, honey, roots, and various insects such as termites and beetle larvae. Here at the sanctuary, we provide Teddy, and his brother Baloo, with a well-rounded diet of proteins, fruits, veggies and the occasional special treat!🍉🍎🥬🥕
Conga showing you what a crazy Caturday looks like!🤪 Conga was a captive-bred pet who was abandoned by her previous owner at the age of five weeks. Fortunately, thanks to the support of our members, Lions Tigers & Bears was able to adopt her! We are happy to be able to provide a happy and safe life at Lions Tigers & Bears!🧡 We want to remind you that it is NEVER a good idea to try and have a wild animal as a pet, they belong in the wild. Their wild instincts eventually emerge, they become hard to handle and pose an extreme risk to the community, leaving the animal to face an uncertain future. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ You can however sponsor an animal at Lions Tigers & Bears!

It's #WomanCrushWednesday and Moka's WCW is his BFF, Nola!🐯🧡 Nola was rescued from an unpermitted location near New Orleans, Louisiana and received around the clock care to treat her medical issues, which she responded to well and made a quick recovery. She quickly settled into life at Lions Tigers & Bears and within six months, Moka arrived. Moka was rescued from smugglers attempting to transport it across the border from Mexico to the United States. He was first sent to San Diego Zoo Safari Park and since he is a bengal tiger hybrid, he was not conducive for the zoo's species survival breeding program and transferred to LTB, where he adjusted to his new home. We are grateful to be able to provide a forever safe home for Moka, Nola, and all of the animals at Lions Tigers & Bears!🦁🐯🐻⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ They absolutely love playing, wrestling, swimming and romping together in their spacious habitats. Tag your Woman Crush Wednesday in the comments below!✨

If you guessed Bakari, Jillian, and Suri for our #throwbackthursday pop quiz - you’re right!🦁✨ These three were rescued from a Louisiana big cat sanctuary in 2007 when they were only four weeks old! Due to overcrowding at the facility, they were unable to keep the cubs, so Lions Tigers & Bears stepped in and accepted all three lions. We've been happy to provide them with their forever home ever since!🧡🦁
#ThrowbackThursday to these cute cubs! Can you guess who this trio is?🦁✨⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Is it Bakari, Jillian, and Suri OR is it Louie, Arusha, and Zulu?⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ We'll be sharing the answer tonight at 6pm!🤭 Stay tuned!🤩

Up close and personal with Punkin!😼 Before Punkin was lucky enough to join our sanctuary family, he was kept at a private facility in Ohio that bred tiger (and mountain lion) cubs and other exotic animals. The facility was shut down when the state enacted SB 310 - the Ohio Dangerous Wild Animals Act in 2014. Punkin was rescued in 2015, along with his partner Melanie, and they were relocated to Lions Tigers & Bears while the Ohio Department of Agriculture conducted an investigation on the facility they were seized from. They remained under Lions Tigers & Bears' care and in spring of 2018, we were granted full legal custody of both cats. Today Punkin is living is best life at our sanctuary!
Nola is spending the last few days of summer splashing around in the pool!🐯💦 Unlike most cats, tigers actually LOVE the water and with their strong bodies and webbed paws, they're also excellent swimmers!🐾 📷 Jarrod Valliere

Looks like this bear is ready for a dip in the pool!🐻💦 As a true and accredited sanctuary - we are a strict no contact facility. Many people ask how we work around the big cats and bears safely and without contact? We do what is called protected contact - meaning there is always a fence or gate between our keepers and the animals. All of our habitats are designed with a safety bedroom or dens - so that the animal can be safely contained, giving the keepers access to clean, perform routine maintenance, and add enrichment or food for the animals to enjoy!💛
