DAHLONEGA, Ga. –
Four rare bundles of joy were delivered this past Thursday at the Chestatee Wildlife Zoo in Dahlonega.
The wildlife preserve in north Georgia had one of their white Siberian Tigers give birth to four healthy cubs. A spokesperson for the preserve tells FOX 5 that this is very rare with this type of tiger. Normally only two or three cubs turn out healthy.
The delivery by their mother, Georgia, came as a bit of a surprise to the volunteers and staff. They say they do not actively breed the tigers, but Georgia and the cubs' father, Magnum, were being held in the same pen and nature took its course.
The cubs had to be segregated from their parents. Volunteers are hand-feeding all four of the cubs. They say they are gaining a healthy amount of weight so far.
The cubs are not expected to be on display for at least a month or two. Once they get older, they may be loaned to zoos or other nature preserves across the country to help educate others on the rare species.
White Siberian Tigers can weigh anywhere from a half to two and a half pounds at birth. They can grow to be 700 pounds as an adult.
Guests at T.I.G.E.R.S. and Preservation Station make wondrous experiences live on for a lifetime in the hundreds of individual and group high end professional photographs and video we take of them on this once in a lifetime journey. They leave Preservation Station with images that only a few privileged photographers and explorers on safari have captured after years of travel; a tiger or cheetah running at full speed or swimming across a clear pool, the great apes sliding through the canopy or a large tusked elephant just a breath away. You can tell from their pictures and the letters they send us how it has changed them.
Over the last decade T.I.G.E.R.S. and the Rare Species Fund have donated over 200 thousand dollars, as well as time, effort and expertise, to grassroots conservation programs in Asia and Africa. By being a guest, you are now part of our international conservation programs.
