Date of Death
Titan arrived at Carolina Tiger Rescue in November, 2010; part of a group of 3 lions and 3 tigers that were rescued when the Wild Animal Orphanage (WAO), a large sanctuary in Texas, closed its doors due to funding issues.
Prior to his life at WAO, Titan lived at the Corpus Christi Zoo in Texas, who surrendered him to the SPCA when they were closed due to violations of the Animal Welfare Act.
Titan was very relaxed and was best buds with Bali but unfortnuately Titan began having problems with his hips and Bali played too rough with him. They were eventualy separated.
Carolina Tiger's medical team sedated Titan on Apr 13th, 2012, to evaluate the status of his hips which had been impairing his mobility for some time. Titan had not been responding to various treatments to manage his pain. Given our lack of additional options for treatment, the decision was made to euthanize him. Titan won the hearts of many by being a talkative and friendly tiger. He loved to come to the fence and chat a while with anyone that was willing to come over for a visit, even when the attempt was clearly painful. His gentle soul will be greatly missed.
