    Sherrie Buck Also, I can say without the slightest doubt that the USA is pretty much the only country that cares about conservation, and is certainly the largest donor in terms of raw $$$ to conservation and preservation causes….so you can stfu with that.

    Lyndsey Jayne Meredith Yes…poisoning and disappearing habitat is the primary cause of its vulnerable status. There are maybe ~10,000 left in the wild, which is down by a TON from 10 years ago.

    Sherrie Buck Irresponsible people anywhere in the world are just sad, ill agree. BUT, i can tell you that anyone here that spends $5000.00 or more on a Safari cat or other hybrid takes VERY good care of them. About the only thing you hear, occasionally, is that someone gets in over there head by not being able to provide a proper environment for say, a Serval or suchlike.

    It is sad that in the USA it is okay to own so many exotic animals! 🙁

    Sad that anyone would keep / sell these as pets …. but indeed I ran into a women at the Vet yesterday (3.11.14) who had a 3 week old kitten (I saw it – fierce and hissing – but cute as hel_) and was shipping it out to MN (I am in AZ) as a pet. When I asked her about it she told me she had 8 more (adults) at home.

    I only found this site as I wanted to research the species to see if she was doing anything illegal (apparently not) and really do not know if BCR endorses the breeding / sale of these (and other) wild animals – if so I would only urge them not to.

    The Vet office I was at was only where I get my dogs groomed – I have 3 – a rescue "mutt" and two older Bichons as well as a rescue (domestic) cat.

    Anyway, I am going to contact me Vet to see what her opinion is of this other Vet's active participation in the sale of this women's wild cats (they were handling the shipping of it to MN). I am also going to find another groomer – I just cannot in good conscience support in any way a Vet who would help this women sell these wild animals to private parties.
