Michael Jackson's tiger, awesomely named Thriller, sadly died of lung cancer at Tippi Hedren's wildlife preserve near El Lay.
The 13-year-old, 375-pound tiger lived with his brother Sabu with Michael Jackson from 1998 until 2006 when Jackson left his home/ranch/amusement park, Neverland.
MJ's vet had asked Hedren to take the cats to her Shambala Preserve where a $79,000 compound was built on a lake for the two tigers.
Even though MJ was known for loving animals he never called to see how his tigers were doing and never sent money for their care.
Both his tigers outlived him, which is sad in its own way.
R.I.P. - Thriller
