Now at Big Cat Rescue April 24 2014

Richard Hargreaves’ update on the Lion Bone Trade from South Africa   24 April 2014 I recently read that the South African provincial records with regard to South Africa’s dead lion exports are a ‘complete shambles’. Based on the latest data now published for 2012 I’m inclined to agree….   DEAD LION EXPORTS FROM SOUTH AFRICA TO CHINA IN 2012   In December 2013 the South African Minister of Water and Environmental Affairs advised that South Africa exported the following dead lions to China in 2012: 36 Read More

Is Rocky the Bobcat a Hybrid? NO. http://www.dailyrecord.com/article/20140408/NJLIFE06/304080006/Pet-Stafford-Bobcat-comes-home-only-taken-Popcorn-Park-Zoo I have been getting calls from reporters asking if Rocky the bobcat could possibly be a hybrid and the answer is "No!"

So, either the owner of the bobcat is a liar, because she told officials Read More

Cat Care

Big Cat Care   Big Cat Rescue has evolved since its inception in 1992. By 1997 we had seen enough of the abuse and abandonment caused by the pet trade that we had previously engaged in to know that there was no reason to breed exotic animals for lives in cages. As a result we increased our efforts through spaying, neutering and cage building to ensure that we would no longer be a part of the problem. As we have continued to learn about the causes of so much suffering we have become active in stopping the exotic pet trade through education Read More
