Ed Stewart couldn’t help but grin when a Siberian tiger sprang from cover and charged 27 firefighters of the Pine Grove Youth Conservation Camp, before pulling up short at the secure fencing surrounding its massive enclosure. “That’s a good thing,” the president and co-founder of the Performing Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) told the alarmed youth. “That means he sized you up and figured he could take you all.” The firefighters who visited the animal sanctuary recently returned from a busy fire season in Southern California and along the coast.
