Remembering Bonny Prince Charlie

I was reminded of Prince Charles this week. Not the one in England, the one in San Francisco. Charlie was a white Siberian tiger with blue eyes who lived at the San Francisco Zoo for almost all his life. He was gentle and sweet; I used to love to go see him when they fed the big cats because you could get very close to them.

I have some pictures of him that I took. Somewhere.

He died in 1998. He was 16. Even though I've been away from San Francisco that long...I miss him.
