Java, Bali, and Titan are captive tigers who have all had several homes over their lives. Each rescued from tough situations, they find sanctuary at Wild Animal Orphanage (WAO) in San Antonio Texas and become instant friends. But hard economic times touch not only people. WAO is forced to close and now the tigers need new homes...Again.
What does it take to move almost two tons of wild cat some 1,400 miles and re-habituate them? 'Removed' tells the story of Java, Bali, and Titan, as well as the people that care for these beautiful yet discarded creatures, all the while shedding light on the little know world of captive tigers in America.
