Off Limits: Putnam Museum

In a closet off the "River, Prairie and People" exhibit at Putnam Museum rests two tigers that once lived at Niabi Zoo. Even from under their plastic covers, the big cats appear ready to pounce. Sharing the closet was a fur seal, wrapped in a sheet, and a polar bear acquired by V.O. Figge on a trip to Alaska. The museum can receive a $15,000 unrestricted challenge grant if it raises the same amount from other sources by the end of the year.
