LONG DESCRIPTION What would it be like to raise a tiger? Graziano Sovernigo, the owner/developer of Paradise Village found out when he took delivery of a tiger cub seized from a drug lord. Since many ... Mexican resorts exploited exotic felines as a way to attract tourists and entertain guests, this story could have had a tragic end. Instead, Sovernigo and the dedicated staff who shared his vision, created a paradise for their eventual family of Bengal tigers. The years that followed were full of hard work, research, hope, heartache, laughter, panic, and plenty of love to go around. Paradise Village played an important role in widening Mexico's Bengal gene pool by producing healthy, genetically sound tigers for zoos and compounds throughout Mexico. This inspiring tale looks at the personalities and eccentricities of these tigers...as well as the devoted landscapers, housekeepers, security guards, golf course workers, and others who bottle-fed cubs, ensured the health of the adults, and educated resort visitors on the plight of the Bengal tiger. Tiger Tales features full color photos of the Paradise Village tigers including many pictures of the cubs taken by Director of the Breeding Program Jesus Carmona and his wife Mary, as well as photos taken by staff, friends and family. There is also a section titled Heard at the Cages, which addresses the most frequently asked questions, and corrects misconceptions visitors have about tiger behavior, care, feeding, and the feasibility of returning these beautiful animals to the wild. Tiger Tales: The Story of the Paradise Village Bengals is a tale worth telling and a story worth reading.
