Jillian came to us with her sister Suri and brother Bakari at the age of 4 weeks. We were contacted by the only big cat sanctuary in Louisiana. Due to overcrowding in their facility they were unable to keep the cubs. Lions Tigers & Bears stepped in and accepted all three lion cubs.

Like her sister and brother, Jillian has received daily training which included verbal commands. These commands help LTB staff to provide care.

Jillian was named at our Wild in the Country event.  The name means “youthful” and “bright light,” which totally described the personality of the cub.
