Who Knew Big Cats Love That Fresh Pine Scent?

In the weeks after Christmas, it's always kind of sad to see countless decorated, bedazzled and previously-adored christmas trees casually kicked to the curb - sitting lonely and forgotten, awaiting their one-way trip to the great mulcher in the sky. However, the creative keepers at Big Cat Rescue in Florida have come up with a better use for discarded Christmas trees! Every year more than 100 unwanted Christmas trees become victims of "big cat enrichment" at Big Cat Rescue - a process by which majestic lions, tigers and leopards have fun messing about with piney-fresh trees that otherwise would have ended up at the dump!
