Two Days Until Big Cat Rescue Turns 20!
Thank you to all of the wonderful donors and matching donors who made it possible for us to forego our big gala, the Fur Ball, this year and concentrate on changing the laws so that big cats are not born into lives of confinement and deprivation as pets and props.

And, sometimes driven by hunger, they wander into town or kill pets or domestic livestock, to then be killed by local police, Game, Fish & Parks officers and, sometimes,

A cougar shot and killed early Thursday morning on Vancouver Island is believed to be the same one that attacked a seven-year-oldboy the previous night.
