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
Mickey Cougar's story is so long and heartbreaking that it will be hard to tell in just a few minutes. (Watch his rescue video to find out the whole story.)
