David Rio pays tribute to
our adopted Bengal tiger, Thor
David Rio adopted Thor in 1999 when he was only five months old, and over the course of 15 years, we fell in love with this well-rounded, fierce tiger who was full of personality and charm. We supported his growth and enjoyed sharing his mighty photos and stories.
In June 2014, Thor's caretaker, Margaret, at the Cat Tales Zoological Park in Mead, WA, informed us that Thor had sudden heart failure and passed away.
The David Rio team is deeply saddened by his passing and will continue to support tigers and animal welfare initiatives locally and globally. In commemoration of our favorite tiger, Thor, David Rio will be offering a refillable Tiger Spice Chai tin.
