Rescued tigers find home in Spain

 

VILLENA: Five of nine tigers that narrowly survived a gruelling journey across Europe will be moved to a new home at an animal refuge in Spain after spending weeks recovering at zoos in Poland. The tigers will leave on Sunday for the “Primadomus” Wildlife Refuge in the south-eastern Spanish town of Villena, Malgorzata Chodyla, spokesman for the zoo in Poznan, western Poland, said on Thursday. Polish border authorities found ten emaciated and dehydrated big cats in the back of a truck taking them from Italy to a zoo in Russia’s Dagestan Republic.
