According to an article from Ozarksfirst.com, Kirby VanBurch recently announced his move to a new location, the Club inside the Lodge of the Ozarks for a new “up close” magic show where he says he welcomes the increased audience interaction and the new challenge of people being up close while he does his magic.
He also announced that the large cats featured in his magic shows would be living in a new home at the National Tiger Sanctuary. Their new homes will be nearly 10-thousand square feet, compared to their previous 600-square foot cages.
The article states that with Kirby’s move to a new theater, he just didn’t have a spot for them.
His cats, Blackie and Bambi were moved to the sanctuary on June 27 and the other three were scheduled to be moved early last week.
