Ventura County Planning Commission Set To Continue Review Of Controversial Proposal For Tiger Facility In Deer Creek Area

Posted on Wednesday, March 19, 2014 4:00pm

The debate over whether a facility to house tigers should be allowed in Ventura County will continue tomorrow.

The Ventura County Planning Commission will continue with its review of the request for a permit to keep up to five of the big cats on the 11000 block of Pacific View Avenue, outside of Malibu.

Animal trainer Irena Hauser and her sister, Sophia had applied for a permit to build a facility for some rare white tigers which are used for photo, and film shoots.

Hundreds of people were on hand for the first part of the hearing February 13th, with many neighbors objecting to the plans, saying they’re concerned about the potential for tigers to escape, and cause a safety threat.
