'Esso tiger' Tango saved from death by wildlife park
A former "Esso tiger" has been rescued by a wildlife park in Lincolnshire.
Eighteen-year-old Tango had been earmarked for destruction in Belgium along with his partner Julia after the two tigers were seized from a German circus last year.
The pair were rescued following a campaign by Neil Mumby and his team of keepers at Woodside Wildlife and Falconry Park in Lincolnshire.
"They are doing really well. They've had a long journey and just like us humans, they get tired, so they went straight to bed when they got here", Mr Mumby said.
