Does USDA Regulate Lion Meat?

No One Is Telling Where Lion Meat Originates and the government doesn't seem to care.  Big Cat Rescue believes that the cute little cubs that are used in pay to play schemes at malls, fairs and in backyard menageries are ending up killed for their meat when they are grown.  No one uses lion hides so it is preposterous for this vendor to claim that it is merely a by product of that industry (as if that made it OK in the first place.) A genuine burger made from lion meat is being served by Il Vinaio restaurant in Mesa, Ariz., in honor Read More

FL Legislature Passes S504 to Prevent Cruelty to Animals

In these tough times, when our government often seems too entrenched in party line protection than working together, the passage of S504 is especially encouraging.  This bill, which has now successfully passed both the House and the Senate, cracks down on animal abusers by counting every animal involved, or every act of cruelty as a separate offense and in some cases invokes the RICO act so that the abusers' assets can be confiscated.   In the past, if someone were to be caught fighting dogs, for instance, they would be charged with Read More

That means the animals have to be moved elsewhere.   This was great news as the zoo is outdated and inadequate, and best of all, homes with better conditions Read More
