      When I first visited this zoo almost two decades ago (with sumatran tigers), this exhibit was so much more lush. :(

      Yeah well they also closed off the viewing window that you would have walked down to between the sloth bear and the tigers i adored as a kid. One of the tigers had escaped out the back exit about 5 years ago and had to be killed. Not sure when and from where the white tiger came from. I believe it was brought in shortly after the tiger shooting had happened in the construction area (probably were africa safari or the outback now sits). The white tiger was still at lowry when I took my dad several weeks ago. At the time, the malayan tiger brothers were a few days shy of their reveal day.

      The shooting actually occured in the rhino yard at the stand where they used to give elephant rides
