We are now under attack by the Ohio Department of Agriculture who has came in on Jan 28th and seized all the animals. 6 tigers, 1 lion, 1 liger, black leopard, 1 grizzly and a cougar. The animals were in Renoldsburg for 7 months, they killed our beloved lion leo and after seeing the pictures of the care they gave him, we and the communitiy are once again outraged. The animals have now been moved without our knowledge or my attorneys knowledge. They have been spread throughout the entire county and to this day we have yet to see ANY pictures of the animals conditions expect Leos body riddled with sores that went all the way to the bone.
We have 4 active court cases that are going on with the very strong possiblity of going to the Supreme court.
We are asking for contiuned donations that all will go to legal bills. We are fighting the goverment and its not going to be a easy or cheap fight. The ODA was hoping we would have given up but thanks to the efforts that everyone has made that is NOT the case. We want the animals home, we want the wrongs made right!! This is more than a late permit this is about the goverment coming in, taking your property and not being held accountable to anyone. We cannot stand for this, We need to fight for our right to own animals, dog and horse owners, beekeepers, they are all being targerted by the ODA, we are setting the case law for all other cases to follow. But we cannot do it alone, we need your help to keep our fight alive!! Even if its just a dollar, we will put it towards the legal fees. If you don't want to donate through go fund me you can go to any fifth third bank and donate in the name of save tigerridge exotics rescue benefit account.
Please donate!! #savetigerridge
Tiger Ridge has been a safe haven for many different kinds of exotic animals for over 30 years. Kenny and Roberta Hetrick have rescued lions, tigers, bears, wolves, bobcats, lynx, mountain lion, leopards. They have always been in complance with the USDA and when the Ohio put their laws into place, there was alot of confusion and not enough to time to become in complete compliance to their regulations, We are the first to get hit and the first to fight back.
We are proud of they care these animals receive and give them the love and respect they deserve.
We have always been open free of charge 365 days a year. We have educated thousands of people on the importance of conservation of these beautiful cats.
