Roane County is a GRRRRRREAT! place to retire.

You know...This could be a wonderful perk for Roane County.

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey’s Red Unit, one of the now-closed show’s two traveling groups, performed for the last time May 7 in Rhode Island. An emotional peak of that performance, the Providence Journal reported, came when the big-cat trainer tearfully thanked each one of the tigers in his act.

Within days, 15 of those Ringling tigers had arrived at their new home: a Tennessee sanctuary called Tiger Haven, where they are now living out their years on a wooded, 45-acre refuge alongside more than 250 other big cats retired from performing groups, relinquished by zoos or rescued from private owners.
