The Eye of the Tiger

Posted on Mon March 9, 2020.

TAJI our beautiful female white Bengal tiger will be under-going eye surgery this month. Taji was born at the Cango Wildlife Ranch and will be turning sweet sixteen on 9 May. Recently, we noticed that Taji was experiencing irritation on her left eye. Needless to say, we monitored her very closely but her eye showed no signs of improvement over the days that followed, leaving us all concerned. Due to the fact that eye specialists for large carnivores are beyond scarce in our area, we had to arrange that one visit us from Johannesburg.

Public Response to Recent World Animal Protection Report

Posted by Cango on Fri August 16, 2019 in Cango Wildlife Ranch - Out & About.

ATTENTION: WAP (World Animal Protection)

Cango Wildlife Ranch has been in operation for over 34 years, under the current ownership, with the primary focus of premium animal care and public education.
