The Exotic Feline Rescue Center is the second largest facility for big cats in the U.S.

Indiana’s Department of Natural Resources transferred several tigers and a number of other big cats to the Exotic Feline Rescue Center in Center Point, Indiana after they were seized from an Indiana non-profit last week. The animals are recuperating after being taken away from Great Cats of Indiana in Idaville.

The animals removed from the facility include four tigers, a lion, a mountain lion and a bobcat. Exotic Feline Rescue Center Director Joe Taft says it is not the first time they hae received animals from Great Cats of Indiana. He says they have been removing animals from the facility for years.

Most of the animals removed were undernourished, but Taft says with a proper diet, the animals will soon be in good health.
