I'm estatic. I had really begun to think there was little hope that they would be found alive, much less well. to whoever was looking after them, even though they might have been thieves.

Appaently there were two drivers doing the drive. Personally the drive should have been done in one shot...mainly for the stress of the animals. Not stop at a motel. Also apparently they were checking on the trailer every 15 mins..which I don't believe. If you are checking on it every 15 mins, what is the point of stopping obviously you are not sleeping. The story is has holes in it i feel, it doesn't add up. I also believe that these two individuals should be fired. Humane arrogance and error could have easily put these animals at more risk then what happened

I was thinking they would have been sold to the black market...illegal wildlife trade.

It was on the news and in the paper that the people who stole the truck/trailer fed and watered the tiger and 2 camels before they dumped the trailer on the side of the road, vet says

This is the strangest thing I think I have ever heard. At least they had a little compassion....
