Here at Urban Paws UK, we provide a range of big cats, that are transported and handled by a team of experts.
We work closely with highly experienced and specialised trainers that carry their own licence in accordance with the Dangerous Wild Animals Act 1976. We can provide tigers to be present on set as well as tigers that are trained to display certain behaviours and/or tricks. All of our exotic animals are from zoos and private collections. We only work with animals that are ethically sourced and cared for, whilst working within the animal welfare guidelines.
When working with our tigers there are a lot of precautions set in place. We feel it is important to remind casting agents that they are still dangerous animals. Actors cannot get hands-on with the tigers but can be composited into scenes during post-production. There will always be at least three handlers accompanying the tiger depending on the age and size of the animal.
Tigers are a captivating talent to add to any project which will leave a lasting impression with your audience. They stand out with their fierceness and strikingly beautiful appearance, having been used in film & television for decades. Always delivering that "Wow" factor. There are only five subspecies of tiger left in the world, just to make you fully aware of how rare this animal is to work with.
Please contact us for more details, as we are positive we can meet your needs, offering a range of ages.
