The trainings, which have brought together shelters, rescues and law enforcement, are part of a three-year, $1 million program.

Tiger, Mountain Lions Seized From Kansas Property

May 7, 2013

A tiger and two mountain lions were among a menagerie of wild cats seized from private farmland in rural northeast Kansas, where they lived in inadequate chain-link enclosures and weren't properly fed or watered, authorities said Monday.

Authorities found a tiger; two mountain lions; three bobcats; two lynx; a type of African cat called a serval; and two skunks on the property. They were taken Sunday from the land belonging to a relative of the animals' owner and were turned over to animal sanctuaries in Texas, Florida and Kansas.
