Escaped Tiger Killed
We are all guilty of the tiger's blood. unless we act now.
A nation mourns the shooting death of a tiger, an un named tiger, who was the declawed and unwanted pet of a Californian. Perhaps I should say that we didn't know the tiger's name. Most owners, even the most awful ones, usually name their pets. Someone knew the tiger's name, but they didn't care enough about him to come forward.
They could have told the authorities that this was a declawed animal that had never associated killing with eating. Read More

Big Cat Bailout
Our federal government allows the private sector to trade in big cats, but when times get tough and the owners can't feed the cats, who eat 15 lb of meat a day, it isn't the government bailing them out. When you hear the term, "too big to fail" they aren't talking about 500 lb cats and too many of them, but maybe they should be. All over America there are back yard cages, full of starving lions, tigers and leopards.
How did they get there?

Female Siberian Tiger
DOB 6/8/94 - 11/24/11 (Thanksgiving Day)
Simba was owned by a woman in Ohio who had declawed Simba and had the cat’s large canine teeth pulled. Supposedly this made Simba “safer” to be with people.

After years of people getting hurt, the woman finally lost her Read More
