The Most Important Thing YOU Can Do to Save Big Cats

Most-ImportantThis bill called the Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act is the most important piece of legislation to ever be introduced to protect lions, tigers and other exotic wild cats from being kept as pets and in miserable roadside zoos. It ended the 113th Congressional session with more than 120 co sponsors.  Now we are working to re introduce the bill in early 2015.

Big Cat Rescue, one of the world’s largest accredited sanctuaries for exotic cats, is a leading advocate in ending the abuse of captive big cats and saving wild cats from extinction.  We are home to about 80 lions, tigers, bobcats, cougarsservals and other species most of whom have been abandoned, abused, orphaned, saved from being turned into fur coats, or retired from performing acts.

Kali Tiger is overjoyed that Chief Magistrate Jon Scoles ruled against Cricket Hollow Zoo in Iowa, to enforce the Endangered Species Act prohibiting the harassment of tigers, citing failure to provide veterinary care and adequate sanitation for the tigers. It's about time someone acknowledged that the typical backyard zoo is violating the ESA by virtue of the small, barren, filthy cages these magnificent animals are kept in all over this country. www.kcrg.com/content/news/Judge-Cricket-Hollow-Zoo-Must-Surrender-Tigers-and-Lemurs-368484441.html Everyone is asking if we will take the tigers, but I believe they already have places standing by and if not, we will certainly try to assist the ALDF. They ROCK!!! ... See MoreSee Less

Tanja PirttiläWonderful news! At least none of the articles I've read mention where the animals are going to go. They only mentioned "accredited facilities" in one of them, which tells pretty much nothing. Wherever they're going to end up, I hope they'll receive as great care as cats at Big Cat Rescue receive daily. <32 hours ago   ·  2
