Michael Jackson’s former pet tigers, “Thriller” and “Sabu”, are helping the Shambala Preserve in California to score a nice cash injection. The late pop singer’s iconic red and black leather jacket from the “Thriller” music video is set to go under the hammer – with proceeds benefiting the animal sanctuary.

Conservative estimates value the jacket at $400K – but early interest indicates that the final sale could be much larger. Jackson gave the piece of music history to his long-time costume designers, Dennis Tompkins and Michael Bush, with a message inscribed in the lining reading, “To Bush and Dennis, All My Love, Michael Jackson.” The item will be among 600 others for sale (including the wig Jackson wore for his announcement of the “This Is It” tour) during the Music Icons Auction hosted by Julien’s Auctions on June 25th.

The two Bengal tigers have been at the sanctuary since 2006 when the late pop singer dismantled the zoo at his Neverland Ranch.

“All of us at The Roar Foundation and Shambala express our gratitude to Julien’s Auctions for making this benefit possible,” the website reads.
