Eduardo Serio was saved by a tiger when one of his leopards decided to spring an attack on him.
The founder of The Black Jaguar-White Tiger Foundation is no stranger to this kind of encounter as he cares for over 240 big cats.
Most of these felines are rescued from a life of abuse in circuses, zoos, breeding facilities and homes of people who keep them as pets.
The Black Jaguar-White Tiger Foundation provides these animals, who would not survive being re-introduced into their natural habitat, with a home.
No doubt these cats are loyal to Serio, but sometimes nature takes over. Lucky for him, he’s got a pretty big bodyguard.
