The Animal Defenders International group got a legitimate tip about where the circus was performing it’s illegal animal acts.  The circus was on the run for 8 months before being caught.  Hoover was rushed from his tiny caged home to a rehabilitation center where he was treated for malnutrition and a plethora of other health issues. Soon he was strong and happy!

Big Cat Rescue center in Florida  took Hoover in and released him out into the wide, open habitat. He was finally in his forever home! The marshes and vast wilderness are perfect for Hoover to stretch his legs and learn to become a wild tiger again.
