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

Animal House, in Moulton, AL, was a backyard zoo that operated with a USDA license up until 2006 when it was revoked.  At the time Alabama had no laws to regulate the private possession of wild animals, so once USDA washed their hands Read More

Gilligan

Gilligan Male Canada lynx Appx. 1/1/07 Rescued 5/5/13     Gilligan's age is unknown. He was purchased along with Skipper at an auction. Gilligan had the tiniest cage measuring 5' x 7'. It was also the dirtiest of all of the cages. The mud floor was not mud, but feces covered with a sprinkling of straw. It appeared as though Gilligan had tried to keep much of his waste confined to one area on top of his plastic dog house. He had perched atop the house day after day to defecate. The large pile of feces cascaded out 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
