HARTSDALE, N.Y. — A tiger rescued from a Harlem apartment has died at around the age of 19.
Ming found a new home at an Ohio animal sanctuary after being captured in 2003. He had mauled his then-owner, who was trying to keep the tiger away from a kitten. The New York Post confirmed this week that Ming died in February. His cremated remains were buried in April at the suburban Hartsdale Pet Cemetery , north of New York City.
She says Ming had “a really good life” at the sanctuary, swimming and playing with “tiger friends.”
