New White Tiger Joins Turpentine Creek

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) – Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge added a new white tiger to the family. 

The tiger's name is Payson. 

Payson was brought from Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium (OHDZA).

“We are very excited to offer Payson a home with us! The OHDZA did what was best for Payson and the tiger species as a whole, since white tigers are not viable genetic candidates for the conservation of the species,” said Tanya Smith, president of TCWR.
