ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

After challenges from family and employees of the animal departments on the Culpepper & Merriweather Circus, I took on a challenge for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. The purpose of the challenges, while raising awareness, is to raise money to help find a cure. We donated to and encourage everyone to do the same. Afterwards, Holder's Tigers had a different take on the Ice Bucket Challenge.

People are amazed when they come out to see the tigers during the day playing in their pools or in the running water of the hose. Tigers love water and are very apt swimmers. It is great for enrichment and also a good way to stay cool on these hot summer days.
