Tigers Return to John Ball Zoo

 
Tigers Return to John Ball Zoo
Posted June 3rd, 2014 @ 8:49am by The Associated Press

Tigers have returned to the John Ball Zoo in Grand Rapids after a five-year absence.
 
The three big cats were on display Monday for a donor party and will be available for viewing by the general public on June 14.
 
Published reports say the zoo last had a tiger on exhibit in 2009. That was before a lone female was relocated to a zoo in North Dakota.
 
The three new tigers recently arrived. They'll comprise John Ball Zoo's upcoming Tigers of the Realm exhibit.
 
They are 3-year-old brothers Yuri and Kuza, who came from the Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse, New York, and Nika, a 9-year-old female from Potter Park Zoo in Lansing.
