Sasha

    SASHA Lioness DOB 5/12/94 Rescued 10/21/07 DOD 1/7/14  http://bigcatrescue.org/sasha-gone-wasnt-coming-back/ Sasha has been declawed (and very badly, at that) and defanged) so she struggles to eat. We provide a soft diet for her, but without her teeth it is hard to hold the food and even hard to contain her tongue. You will often see her with her tongue hanging out as a result.   A Lion Pride of a Different Stripe   It took the combined efforts of USDA, undercover agents and Read More

Doing What Bobcats Do Bobcats make great neighbors but lousy pets.  More info about Living With Bobcats.   Awesome ad erases all the animals in The Lion King's opening sequence This is a great ad by Greenpeace Netherlands, brilliantly executed by Studio Smack: They erased all the animals of The Lion King's opening sequence to show kids and adults how the African savanna would look if we don't protect its animals. I can imagine the kids first puzzled, then crying, as all their favorite animals disappear leaving the beautiful Read More

Amanda the Tiger

  AMANDA Female Tiger Born 1/1/96 Rescued 9/28/11   Arthur, Andre and Amanda were born in 1996 in New Jersey to be used as pay-to-play photo props.  It never makes sense to breed more cubs to raise money to feed last year's cats, and the New Jersey facility fell into disrepair and then was shut down after USDA revoked their license following a tiger escape. In 2003, Wild Animal Orphanage took in the 24 tigers but big cats have big appetites and by 2010 the Wild Animal Orphanage was in bankruptcy. It took Read More

Bobcat Killed by "Kindness" A Story That Breaks My Heart On Dec 27, 2013 I got a call from Scott C.  He said he had been camping with his family, including a five year old daughter, at the Saint Sebastian River Preserve State Park at 1000 Buffer Preserve Dr in Fellsmere, FL and had been approached by a young, starving, female bobcat kitten.  I asked him to send photos and he sent these.  It would be a three hour drive for me to go see if I could find her, so I immediately contacted Sherrie Wentworth of www.eastcoastwildliferehab.com and Read More

  Are you thinking of seeing “The Wolf of Wall Street?”   The film contracted with the Rosaire family for one of the chimps and lions used in the film. Who are the Rosaire’s? One of the very first letters Julie H. wrote and had published on behalf of animals many years ago was about, in our opinion, this horrible breeding/abusing family. (They have a place in SW FL called Big Cat Habitat and we have an entire computer file filled with articles about them).   At a USDA Big Cat Symposium in Fort Worth, Kay Rosaire said Read More

Liligers

What are Liligers?   http://youtu.be/8S8NKNwXEjU As sad as the video above is, it isn't even as bad as the places that use the cubs for petting and photo sessions because those cubs are taken from their mothers shortly after birth and denied the protective love their mothers would try to give them, as this one who was filmed at a zoo.   They are a money making scheme promoted by some of what we believe to be the world's worst big cat exploiters. First it was this guy promoting Ligers. Then it was his friend, Joe Exotic, Read More

MaryAnn

Mary Ann Female bobcat Appx. DOB 1/1/08 Rescued 5/5/13   Mary Ann is approximately four years old and was bottle raised from a kitten.

Her cage was absolutely filthy, feces and meat scraps had piled up for months. She had two small plastic dog houses, one of which was broken in half and filled with urine. The other which she used for shelter from the rain and snow was filled with small Read More

Sand Cat Facts

Sand Cat   Common Name: Sand Cat Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata (Vertebrata) Class: Mammalia Order: Carnivora Family: Felidae Genus: Felinae (Felis) Species: margarita Misc: This is one of the more difficult cats to study in the wild. Their foot coverings allow them to walk on sand without sinking, leaving their footprints nearly invisible.  They have learned to crouch down and shut their eyes when a light is shone on them, which prevents the light from reflecting their eyes for tracking. That combined with their protective Read More

Caracal Facts

Caracal Common Name: Caracal Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata (Vertebrata) Class: Mammalia Order: Carnivora Family: Felidae Genus: Felinae (Caracal) Species: caracal Misc: The name Caracal is derived from a Turkish word "karakulak" meaning "black ear." The Caracal was once trained for bird hunting in Iran and India. They were put into arenas containing a flock of pigeons, and wagers were made as to how many the cat would take down. This is the origination of the expression "to put a cat amongst the pigeons." The Caracal is capable Read More
