Florida Woman Keeps Bengal Tigers In Her Garden

While most people spend their golden years relaxing in their garden Janice Haley chooses to hand feed the two man-eating tigers she keeps in hers. Saber — a 600 pound white Bengal male and Janda — a 400 pound orange Bengal female live in a cage at the back of Janice’s unassuming suburban home. Each day Janice, 57 hand feeds the gentle giants and Saber — the baby of the pair – can’t get off to sleep without suckling on her finger. She happened upon her extraordinary life around 20 years ago when she quit her job as an admin assistant to spend more time working outdoors. After spotting an ad for a tiger training course in her local paper she applied and two years later arrived home with Chuffer the tiger cub. She was immediately BITTEN by the tiger bug and in 2002 bought Janda — who is now 12 — to live with Chuffer. After Chuffer’s death in 2007 little Saber — who was only two weeks old at the time — was introduced to the enclosure — much to the annoyance of Janda.
