Proposed Tiger Sanctuary near the Las Vegas Strip
LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – The headquarters of the World Association of Buddhism have applied for a permit to set up a tiger sanctuary at the corner of Paradise and Sahara Blvd. just one block from the Las Vegas Strip.
The application, first published by Vital Vegas, is on the Winchester Town Advisory Board. While many assume the Strip is Las Vegas, it actually isn’t and is located in the unincorporated city of Winchester.
According to property records, the headquarters of the World Buddhist Association purchased just over 11 acres on this corner in 2018 for $ 17.5 million.
The application requests a use permit to authorize âinherently dangerous exotic animalsâ and a ârecreation facility with retail accessories, restaurant and alcohol consumption on siteâ.
In the âdesign reviewâ part of the request to city council, it is stated: âThe design review of a recreation facility with inherently dangerous exotic animals consisting of a fabric structure (tent) and a tiger sanctuary â.
The article is expected to be raised next Tuesday, November 30, at the board meeting. It will be held at the Winchester Community Center at 3130 McLeod Dr. from 6 p.m.
