Lion - Panthera leo
This "King of Beasts" once roamed over most parts of the world including Africa, North America and Eurasia. Today, however, they are restricted to the savanna, open expanses, and grassy plains of Africa, and to a small area of western India. There are about 15,000 lions in the wild today. Just ten years ago that number was closer to 50,000. The shrinking numbers are due to hunting and overpopulation of humans.
One hundred and fifty years ago, there lived a subspecies of lion, Panthera leo persica, which Read More

Freckles the Liger
DOB 1/1/93 -7/5/2011
Arrived at Big Cat Rescue 12/19/2008
Most ligers suffer from a condition called Giganticism where they grow to over a 1,000 lbs in the first couple years of life.
Since it is un natural for lions and tigers to cross breed (being that they are typically not on the same continent) the cubs are usually too large for the mother to deliver without a c-section and they die very young from a multitude of birth defects and due to the rapid growth.
Freckles only weighs about the same as a lion and Read More
Jamie and Justin See Big Cats in Africa
Big Cat Rescue President, Jamie Veronica, and her husband, Dr. Justin Boorstein saw more big cats in one week than most people see in a lifetime of visits to South Africa in this Cat Chat episode where we review their photos.
Lion vs Tiger? ... Which is your favorite?
Please don't ask the age old, childish question about which one would win in a fight. We don't even what to think about cats fighting.

Even Rednecks Know You Shouldn't Pet Tiger Cubs
I had originally asked this couple to pretend that they were going to go pet tigers at the fair, but they were so appalled that anyone would do that, they asked to make the video in their own way to show that even rednecks know better than to pay to pay with tiger Read More
Cub Petting Ban Petition on Federal Register
This morning USDA published the Big Cat Coalition's petition in the Federal Register - http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-08-05/pdf/2013-18874.pdf
We are asking all of our supporters to comment THAT THERE IS NO CIRCUMSTANCE UNDER WHICH THE PUBLIC SHOULD BE ALLOWED CONTACT WITH CUBS.
The rule will already allow that if a cub truly needs to be hand raised it would be by a vet or staff, but not the general public. Please don't give the bad guys a single loophole to exploit.

Just about everything
First of all, despite the lies that the breeder told you, those cubs were not "orphaned" or "rejected." That is just the terminology that exploiters use to make you feel good about them purposely breeding litter after litter of lions and tigers, ripping them from their mothers and pimping them out so you can have your picture made with a cub.
Using lion cubs and tiger cubs as photo props is bad enough, but some back yard breeders have figured out a way to make even more money: Swim with tiger cubs.
