JnK Rescue Photos via IFAW

JnK Rescue Photos via IFAW When we rescued Kimba, Zeus and Keisha from JnK's Call of the Wild in Sinclairville, NY we were not allowed to film but IFAW did and shared these photos of the rescue with us to share with you. Kimba   Kimba the tiger had been almost entirely unresponsive to the rescue efforts going on around her, and had been sleeping in her den, but when we tried to shut her in it, she came out and refused to go back in.  There were no safety entrances on the cages, so there was no way to hook up our transport unless Read More

Rescinding the generic tiger loophole will stop the virtually unregulated inbreeding and cross breeding of tigers who are already in the U.S. because the breeder would have to submit an application showing how breeding the tiger would save tigers in the wild and thus serve some conservation value. Most tigers are bred just to use the cubs until they are 12 weeks old and then they are discarded or warehoused.  http://bigcatrescue.org/abuse-issues/issues/pet-cubs/ As I read through Read More
