I hope so Suzybell. Tipi Hedren who owns the sanctuary where they are located is refusing to move because they are all big cats she has there.

I heard an interview with Tipi on the news today; they are staying unless it becomes too dangerous. She said they have MANY trailers for the animals and it is a narrow road away from the fire(s); SO many things to consider. But they DO have a plan put into place (she said they have fire drills every 6 weeks), and she has an excellent relationship with the fire department there.........I pray they will all be safe!!! What a scary, sad situation.

You are welcome Simone-it was on FOX 'news' of all places! (I turn them on once in awhile to see what they are up to!) The 'reporter' was trying to imply that it wasn't worth the lives of the firefighters to save the animals and their crazy caretakers! I got angry at the way she was throwing out her questions...but then again, she doesn't know any better-she works for FOX!!! :)
