Field Trip!

Posted on September 2, 2011 by Haymaker

Why didn’t our third grade field trips look like this?

This injustice needed redressing. So we got some friends together, made sure all the permission slips were signed, handed out snacks and juice boxes, and drove out to the Carolina Tiger Rescue in Pittsboro.

This place exists because people decide to keep big cats as pets, and then find out that’s a bad idea. When they do, those animals need a place to live.

Wow. Being two feet away from a full-grown tiger is a hell of a thing. Just a little chain link fence keeping everybody where they belong.

As luck would have it, we brought along a recording device to see what our field trippers thought.
