Piper arrived at the Animal Ark on January 17, 2006 following a health check from a local veterinarian. After an unsuccessful breeding program, her former owner decided it was time to find her a new home. Piper was originally purchased from a breeder in Montana. All too often animals like Piper are sold as pets. Wild animals do not make good pets; they also require special care and housing. Piper’s former owner became aware of these challenges after caring for several bobcats in his possession. He sought to find her a new home, at which time Animal Ark was contacted.
