The Most Important Thing YOU Can Do to Save Big Cats


Take Action buttonThis 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. IF YOU ONLY DO ONE THING TO SAVE BIG CATS; THIS IS THE ACTION TO TAKE TODAY!!!

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.

Olivia FontanaFor everyone getting worried about the lion's health - what happened is unfortunate, but it's no different than in the wild. Much worse things can happen when a rogue male tries to overtake a pride by fighting the dominate male. Teeth can go sideways, faces can be half torn off, and hips can have gouges. This is the tuft of his tail. As the article read, for a 450lb lion, it's a small injury - PLUS, he's expected to recover. Considering this was an accident - unlike people who improperly raise lions or tigers on private property - I don't think the Oregon Zoo should be charged or filed against with anything. The keeper/educator doing the show was certainly doing what she could to keep the crowd and children calm in that instance. Her tone may have come off as not caring, but she opened the gate probably before she needed to so the lion could be lead in for the vets. Not every zoo is a hellhole for animals. Just my two cents.3 hours ago   ·  4
