Tiger goes to school.

It’s not everyday that a tiger comes strolling into your classroom.But for a group of Alcona Glen Elementary School students, that’s exactly what happened Friday. As preparation for several fundraisers that will benefit Bear Creek Exotic Wildlife Sanctuary, the school’s Ambassador’s Club received an up close look at a five-month-old Siberian tiger named Makari, and nine-year-old umbrella cockatoo named Daisy.

“It looked unreal,” said 11-year-old Dana, after coming within metres of the tiger, which was restrained on a leash by a sanctuary staff member. “It actually came in and walked around. I thought it would be shocked.”
