Kya the Blind Tiger Name:
Kya the Blind Tiger

Kya arrived at Popcorn Park this September (2013), a magnificent 3 year old, blind white Bengal tiger. The white color in tigers may also carry medical issues with it, including problems with vision, such as glaucoma. When Kya was accepted at a zoo in Maryland at 6 months, she was already experiencing some sight issues. Over the next 2-1/2 years, Kya's glaucoma progressed until she was completely blind, and the zoo no longer wanted her. (Read Kya's full story.) One of our veterinarians, Dr. Jonathan Bergmann, heard of Kya's plight, and soon she arrived at her new lifelong home, Popcorn Park.
An existing tiger compound was made safe for Kya, and she soon adapted wonderfully, amazing staff by her ability to sense her surroundings. She can enter her den at a full run never bumping into anything and can stop in front of staff who stand silent and motionless outside her compound, walk over to the fence and start chuffing, (talking.) She plays with her toys, tosses her bone around on bone night, and comes to the fence to say hello whenever she's called. Despite being blind, Kya is clearly enjoying life to the fullest and not letting her handicap hinder her in any way.
Kya gets regular visits from our staff vet and has started a series of optomologist appointments with NorthStar Vets for both overall health and her eyes. Kya is not in pain, but does require medication for glaucoma. She would love some sponsors to help with her medical expenses and medication. Can you help our lovely blind lady see the love in your heart?
