Watch Sapphire the White Tigress in 3D 180VR. She came to us amidst a four-year-long legal battle. She was seized by the Ohio Department of Agriculture and temporarily housed at Big Cat Rescue along with Jasmine Tigress, Dutchess Tigress, and Jinx the Black Leopard for the duration of court proceedings. She became a permanent resident in 2019.
Sapphire, like all White tigers in the United States, is the result of severe generational inbreeding of genetically defective animals for a particular colored coat and even worse, they are all hybrid or crossbred animals. On top of being inbred, these poor cats suffer from a plethora of health issues. All white tigers are cross-eyed due to their optical nerve being wired to the wrong side of the brain. Although the obviousness of being cross-eyed differs, there is no denying that they all suffer from the condition. Unfortunately, on top of the smaller abnormalities, they also deal with defects that can be debilitating, and at times, even lethal, internal and external conditions and characteristics, club feet, cleft palates, spinal deformities, and defective organs.
