Up close with big cats
Furry guests take center stage at King Richard’s Faire, with education and conservation offered as part of the act
You have to go to the very edge of "Carvershire" to see them. You have to walk past the wise-cracking guy with the penciled-on mustache cracking his whip, past the booths selling turkey legs and yards of beer at King Richard’s Faire. That's where you'll find them, the world's biggest cats — one of them, a 900-pounder stretching out and drinking milk out of a baby bottle. The message from their master: If the tigers' environment crumbles, ours is next.
