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.

Paul HeyesCaptive breeding may well not save animals from "extinction in the wild" because it's questionable how many will ever make a success of being introduced. However, pragmatism ... if the choice is between "clouded leopards only exist in zoos" and "clouded leopards DON'T exist" then I'm all for captive breeding. It shouldn't come to that, but all too often it already has done.5 hours ago   ·  1

Pimprenelle DVJ'avoue que j'étais partagée sur cette question, mais la réponse d'un directeur de l'association pour la sauvegarde - Ron Tilson - m'a fait halluciner --> la vente d'animaux exotiques représente un marché multimillionnaire, se plaçant juste derrière les profits du trafic de drogue et devant la vente d'arme ?!? (Ceci est une traduction personnelle de l'extrait !) WTF ! Dans mon esprit - plus cruche et niaise que moi, tu meurs ^^ - prendre un animal comme le tigre chez soi (dans des conditions de vie et d'habitat adaptés, j'entends...) est un acte d'amour pour cet animal. Alors savoir que la finalité de cette démarche est purement intéressée, ça me dégoûte Beûark !!!5 hours ago
