Where The Tigers Roam: Eagle Point

Oregon Tiger Sanctuary

Even people who don't much like cats have to be impressed with tigers. 

And that's actually a problem for the animals: they are so charismatic, they end up in stage shows or used in other ways that do not help the animals themselves. 

That's where the Oregon Tiger Sanctuary comes in.  OTS rescues big cats and other animals and brings them to the Eagle Point area. 

And not for public display, either... there are no tours at the sanctuary.  Longtime keeper and veterinarian Robert Nagato Needleman visits with news of the animals' lives.
