Sabre the Black Leopard Neutered at Big Cat Rescue
Whenever you have to treat a big cat, it is a risk. Sometimes they can react poorly to being put under for simple procedures. And don't forget the fact that you are working around a very dangerous animal. We had the chance to neuter Saber the black leopard. And we also took this opportunity to give him a check up, weigh him, and move him to another enclosure back on the tour path were he likes to look at the silly people.

2007 Updates on Some of our Big Cat Surgeries
Come with us as we update you on the big cats that appeared in three of our more popular pod casts this year.
At Big Cat Rescue we pride ourselves that we are doing the best we can in this animal industry to have strong ethics. We have grown into a world-class non-breeding sanctuary and we don’t give in to the theory that babies bring in money, or that you have to rotate animals or get rid of surplus.
We have no roller coasters, no petting zoos or photo booths Read More
Snow Leopard Study Program Participation 2007
Big Cat Rescue loves to help out and support wild feline conservation. We were recently asked to participate in a project that collected fecals from captive snow leopards, in order to be used to train dogs to identify the smell. These dogs will then be used out in snow leopard habitat to better help the researchers. Helping out the snow leopard is important as lets face it, the leopard doesn’t have the fact that people can ride up to it sleeping on the plains on a jeep Read More
Will We Save the Florida Panther 2007
At Big Cat Rescue we often try to help others understand why the cat populations are going down in places like Asia and Africa. We sometime forget that this is happening in our own backyard. Take a look at the current situation of the Florida Panther. Even though their numbers are slightly higher than reported in the 1980's after decades of over hunting there are more killed on the roads than ever before.
In 2006 we had 11 endangered Read More
Cougar Cubs All Grown Up

The current situations with cougars (mountain lions etc…) are interesting. You could be a Florida Panther, which are protected and slowly heading towards extinction (as many are hit by vehicles each year due to a huge population growth in Florida), or you could be a western puma and legally hunted in states like Oregon for a $10.00 fee.
The cougars we mostly hear about are those that are people’s former pets. We get calls all the time where people went out and bought Read More
