Micheal Jackson's tiger dies of cancer!

I'm sure a lot of you will ask why this is important, but there was really nothing to blog about, this popped up and I thought; "why not?"

The 13-year-old tiger died of lung cancer at the Tippi Hedren's wildlife preserve near Los Angeles on June 11. An autopsy was performed and the tiger was cremated.

Hedren stated that Thriller and brother Sabu were born in 1998 and lived with Jackson until 2006 when Jackson left Neverland. Jackson's veterinarian asked Hedren to take the cats at her Shambala Preserve in Acton. She says a $79,000 compound was built on a lake and Thriller had a great life with Sabu.

Despite Jackson's love of animals, Hedren says, he never called to check on the tigers and never sent any money to help pay for their care.
