The photos are slide show enabled if you click on them. If you click on the top lighthouse photo it always takes you to the most recent summary list of my postings.

This post is for Camera Critters ...please check out the other wonderful critter photos to see there.
Suzy the Tiger has been living in the Highlands. Isn't she the most beautiful thing you ever saw!! She came from a wildlife park in Lake Cowichan and they had received her from members of the Vancouver movie industry. Some of the local citizens felt it was unsafe to have Suzy nearby and efforts were made to have her removed even though she is in a large safe compound and is extremely well cared for.... I am not sure what the outcome will be for Suzy but whatever it is, I truly hope this amazing creature will be loved and cared for and that a home will be found for her that will offer her some kind of life suitable to such a wondrous animal. I am sure she is safe where she is but it is just so difficult for me to rationalize and witness animals not in their natural setting but in a setting that we think natural.
