The raging California wildfire is encroaching the Shambala Preserve owned by actress Tippi Hedren. Out of the 64 tigers and lions living in the animal sanctuary, two of them once belonged to the King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

The big cats have not been evacuated, albeit an order from the authorities. The preserve is surrounded by water tanks, pumps, a lake, "36 transport crates for the animals" and plenty of food.

Hedren believes it is not the time yet to transport the animals out of the area. Until the fire gets closer, the animals will continue staying put on the preserve.
