HSNT Rescues Bengal Tiger

The Humane Society of North Texas, a MAC Member Group, recently removed a 250 pound full-grown adult Bengal tiger from a home in Hamilton County after officer's determined his cage was filthy and inadequate, he was not registered as is required by law, and he appeared malnourished. The big cat, named Hamilton, was understandably frightened when he first arrived at the shelter, and was only about half the weight he should be. But now with good meals- a whopping 10-15 pounds of fresh meat a day – things are looking up and Hamilton is beginning to feel at home. The Humane Society of North Texas is actively pursuing a quality sanctuary for permanent placement. To find out more about Hamilton’s story and see more fabulous pictures of this gorgeous big cat, visit HSNT at
