The Humane Society Speaks Out Against Cubs and Props

 

Wild Animals Are Not Stuffed Toys

Across the country, the public can pet, feed, pose, and play with tiger, bear, and lion cubs, as well as other wild animals for a fee. These baby animals are bred and used for just a few months for photo ops and play time, and then discarded. This vicious cycle fuels the exotic pet trade, puts animals at risk, endangers the public, and creates a burden for both law enforcement and nonprofit sanctuaries when these cast-off cubs become adults and are too large and unpredictable to handle.

In response to a legal petition from The HSUS and other animal protection and conservation organizations, the U.S. Department of Agriculture is requesting comments on whether to prohibit public handling of dangerous wild animals.

Please urge the USDA to prohibit this cruel and dangerous practice»

Define Pet Store

 

USDA has changed the Animal Welfare Act regulations by revising its definition of retail pet store in order to keep pace with the modern marketplace and to ensure that animals sold via the Internet or other non-traditional methods receive humane care and treatment.

 

In an effort to provide all pertinent information in one location, USDA Animal Care has created a special web page. On this page, we will post all related materials and updates. We encourage you to please visit the page and read through the posted materials in order to: 1) gain a better understanding of this regulation change; 2) learn the reasons that prompted the change; and 3) see if you need a USDA license or if you are exempt from licensing.
