Mickey Goes Home Daily Big Cat 9-12-14 http://youtu.be/TbC46H5uIF8 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

Shere Khan

  SHERE KHAN Male Bengal/Siberian Tiger DOB 12/20/94 Rescued 3/12/95 DOD 8/27/14   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
