Mickey Goes Home
Daily Big Cat 9-12-14
Master keeper Gale discusses Mickey the cougar's release and rehabilitation on this episode of #DailyBigCat.
Toronto Jays and Wall Street Journal
At least the Jays had the good sense to take down the photos, once they found out that people who love animals think this is nothing more than animal abuse. Big cat cubs belong with their mothers. They aren't ego props. Shame on the WSJ for not doing a simple Internet search on the subject of pay to play cubs before condoning Read More
Keisha the tiger was born in 2000 at a pseudo sanctuary in Sinclairville, NY called JnK's Call of the Wild. She was the second generation of tigers born at that facility and some reports state than 5 generations were born there over the years. While the website proclaimed to be a sanctuary, in fact, all but one of the 11 tigers had been bred for use as pay to play props. According to volunteers, Zeus was the son of the original female, Kimba, and then was bred back to his mother to create Read More

Mickey the Cougar Goes Back Outside After Surgery
This den isn't very pretty, but it give him shelter and is easy for him to access while his knees heal.
Male Bengal/Siberian Tiger
If you saw The Tiger Next Door on Animal Planet, then you saw the horrid conditions at the facility owned by Dennis Hill in Flatrock, Indiana. The Tiger Next Door didn't air until 3/25/2010 and it was about USDA taking away Hill's permit and the DNR (Dept. of Natural Resources) seizing all but three tigers in 2005. What the show doesn't bring out is that the conditions you saw in the movie were far better than when DNR first Read More
Jumanji the Leopard Vet Emergency
When we found Jumanji Leopard "down" and unresponsive we had to make a quick decision; go in and wrangle him into a transport to go to the vet, or sedate him in this weakened state. It looked like heat stroke or maybe a bad encounter with a cane toad, but he didn't have a temperature and wasn't drooling as much as a toad usually causes.
Zeus the tiger was born at a pseudo sanctuary in Sinclairville, NY called JnK's Call of the Wild in 1996. Zeus has limited vision and gets daily eye drops to manage the pain until he is strong enough for surgery.
He was saved by Big Cat Rescue in May 2014 when the NY state attorney’s office decided to send a message to all of the backyard breeders, dealers and pseudo sanctuaries that they would no longer turn a blind eye to the danger that these facilities pose to the public and launched the biggest seizure of wild animals Read More
Thurston AKA Mr. Howell
Mr. Howell is approximately five years old and was Lovey's mate. He is declawed on all four paws and his left ear is folded over most likely the result of a past injury.
The two of them shared a cramped cage about 5'x13'. Their only shelter was a small plastic dog house that they managed to cram themselves into to escape the cold weather. The also had a tiny child's play table to perch on.
Mr. Howell was not neutered and it is most likely that Lovey Read More
