Marcie says they were put down because the facility couldn’t care for the tigers any longer, because either the current or the past owners had started to breed the tigers. The BC SPCA was working with the owners to see if there were any other options, including moving them to another facility.

Although a veterinarian was not involved, the BC SPCA has no evidence that the euthanization was not humane.
