      USDA is understaffed and can only handle 1,000 cases per year, so they choose the worst and as bad as he is, I guess he didn't make their top 1000 list. In late 2011 USDA said they had a backlog of 2,000 cases and that they were going to just give 1000 of them a warning letter so that they could scale back to 1000 cases to deal with. The problem is that it meant no more cases would rise to the top in 2012 because they were already at their max. That is why the bad guys love to say that they are USDA inspected. It means almost nothing and they know USDA can't afford to stop them.

    wild animals belong in the wild. The AZA monitors breeding programs. A white tiger is a genetic misfit! There are no breeding programs to breed these animals and return to the wild!

      many organizations in the US, AND the world, say they are sanctuaries. THEY ARE NOT! True big cat sanctuaries will have the cats spayed or neutered, no continue breeding and selling. What kind of sanctuary is that? I suggest everyone watch these upcoming shows on Nat Geo. Privately captive animals DON'T HELP the return of them into the wild!!!!!!!!!!
