    October 16, 2014 @ 12:15 am

    […] For 14 years Tony has been exploited at the truck stop as a roadside attraction. He has become the “spokes-tiger” for captive tigers and big cats in the United States by networking the issue to people worldwide and gaining support in the U.S. for a federal ban on private ownership of big cats with the Big Cats & Public Safety Protection Act. United States Residents can take action by asking their Congress Members for their co-sponsorship and support of this bill; visit this link from Big Cat Rescue – Tampa FL: http://bigcatrescue.org/big-cats-and-public-safety-protection-hr1998-s1381/ […]

  14. Animal Prop Photos and the Wildlife Trade | InThisTogetherBlog.com
    February 25, 2014 @ 12:39 am

    […] Animal prop photos are not an underground phenomenon by any means. In January 2014, Beyoncé and Jay-Z through their two year old daughter a birthday party at Jungle Island Wildlife Park and botanical garden in Miami. Shortly after, Beyonce posted the party photos on Tumblr. These photos featured the star feeding and holding an infant tiger and clothed, infant chimpanzee among other animals. The Jungle Island website offers opportunities to hold and play with lemurs as well as a VIP tour featuring “up-close and un-caged” access to lemurs and orangutans. The website also features photos of a young girl cuddling with a gibbon and a young boy holding a crocodile with its mouth taped shut. Jungle Island Wildlife Park is not accredited by GFAS or the AZA. Its list of affiliations includes corporate sponsors, the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA), and the Zoological Association of America (not to be confused with the reputable AZA, ZAA is merely a “a trade organization” which “defend the right to own exotic and domestic animals, in both privately funded and publicly funded facilities” and has opposed legislation such as The Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act).
