Billboard for Untamed Mountain lion kingdom near Albertville, Alabama

This last stop exotic animal preserve was previously located in Ft. Pierce Florida, but in 2005, after being damaged by 3 hurricanes in 2 years, Tigers for Tomorrow began relocating to 140 acres in Attalla, Alabama, not far from Albertville, in the northeastern part of the state.

    Is this place really full of untamed tigers? I love “Spontaneous Interactions with Handlers”. I hope the handlers remain there as opposed to being tasty treats for the inhabitants.

    (The AWMOK Jungle Animal Petting Zoo is a scenic attraction whose cages are currently being filled to coincide with the release of the upcoming Pomplamoose with Allee Willis “Jungle Animal” VideoSong and online music game and contest. Jungle tamer, AWMOK creator, curator and charming hostess, Allee Willis, me, will be steadily leading jungle animals to their cages over the next 1-2 months or so as you bring them here until the song is released. If ever there ever was a category that was primed to be kitschified it’s that of “Jungle Animal” as all the stripes, spots and fur have been inspiration for designers since the beginning of time. I thank you all in advance for placing your jungle pets in such an illustrious cage as The Allee Willis Museum of Kitsch. Keep them coming!)

    i have several questions:

    do WE get to have “Spontaneous Interactions” with the “Handlers” or do the animals just get to have that? or both?

    are the lions and tigers untamed, or, as the name implies, is it the mountain itself that is untamed?

    what qualifies the tigers as being “for tomorrow”? the little white logo to the left of the word “tigers” seems to indicate that at least one of the big cats has wings and can fly…so perhaps that’s indeed a futuristic tiger…

    and here’s a tip! the website listed on the sign indicates that “tigers for tomorrow” is currently looking for interns. you “will need to perform daily husbandry of barn animals and farmyard animals,” plus you’ll get “escape and capture training: basic training of tranquilizer and sedation, safety, hands on practice with tranquilizer guns and blowpipe.”

    Mark, curiosity killed the cat, but your questions are so wonderful that I’ll answer them in another post. The sanctuary has 18 Siberian and Bengal tigers, along with white wolves, numerous lions, cougars, black leopards, a lama, camel, zebra, and Kodiak bear. There is only one fulltime staff member, plus several intern, who have to be replaced frequently, as they tend to disappear.
