    Wish the warning would have come before the viewing of the dead serval pic……..very disturbing. Happy to see the others are settling in good at BCR. I think I'm in love with "Skipper" 🙂

    Mon dieu. Heartbreaking what goes on out there with these beautiful animals – they are powerless. Thank God for people like these ones.

    WHY DO THESE MONSTERS TAKE IN THESE BEAUTIFUL BIG CATS AND THEN ABUSE AND NEGLECT THEM? WHAT'S WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE THAT THEY CAN'T EVEN FEED AND WATER THE BIG CATS? SUCH A TERRIBLE THING AND THE LAW NEEDS TO COME DOWN HARD ON THESE CRIMINALS. THEY MURDER SOME BY NEGLECT AND ABUSE.

    As always, I applaud and greatly appreciate the HSUS and Big Cat Rescue for all their hard work, compassion, and dedication in helping animals all over the world. This was a horrible situation — none of those wonderful animals should have had to endure what they did — but, thanks to these wonderful people, at least some of them were able to be rescued and given a second chance at life.

    Thank you for saving these poor creatures. My heart aches for the ones who have died. I can't understand how in 2013 individuals, circuses, zoos are still able to obtain licenses. Surely only animal sanctuaries should be issued with licenses. How long will it still take before we evolve to be decent caring humans or will this never ever happen?

    That's no way to treat these beautiful animals, I Am happy that someone is looking out for the welfare of these animals.

    I am overwhelmed with emotion in regards to how cruel someone could be to these animals! I support BCR & have the highest respect for work that is done to rescue & provide homes for these cats! Getting people educated about the laws governing exotic cats as pets is so important! Thanks BCR!!

    I am truly grateful for organizations like Big Cat Rescue. I can't fathom the idea of leaving animals to die; I hope people rally in support of the cause to save the remaining rescued animals as well.

    I agree Connie! There really should be much more stringent laws for wildlife owners, not only in Kansas but in all of America! I had a boss who used to keep cougars. At the time I was young and didn't realize what a dis-service he was doing to those beautiful creatures! Now, I am fully in support of very strong wildlife laws.

    It should be illegal for anyone to "own" a wild animal. this is heartbreaking and disgusting.

    Thank you for the big cats that could be rescued. HSUS did a fantastic job. On the other hand, I really feel sorry for all the cats that have died. I will always feel amazed when I see that such things still happen.

    Their former "guardians" in Kansas should be made to live in the same conditions as they provided these cats. See how they like it. Thanks BCR.

    I wish that owner had been reported before some of the animals dies.
    God bless BCR for all your good work!

    Only Qualified animal professionals should be licenced to have animals like these….. IN ZOOS…….WITH PROPER INSPECTIONS REGULARLY. If they are sent to prison this will discourage the others.

    This makes me ill! I am so happy & thankful for the 2 sanctuaries who came in and rescued these cats. I am so sad for those that passed. Why on earth would someone take in wild animals if they were not going to care for them? I am just heartbroken. Thank you to Big Cat Rescue in Tampa and the others for helping these cats! <3

    I am sorry to see that these wild cats were allowed to liven in this envorinment for so long. It is a blessing that someone finally did something and told authorities. Thanks to the organizations who are taking these cats to better facilities to live better lives and be well cared for. Please support the Big Cat Rescue for helping out these wild animals. Gary and I have both been th BCR and know the wonderful work they do with the help of people who donate money, time and support saving wild animals.

    I visited Big Cat Rescue while visiting Florida in March. Kudos to this organization. As much as I dearly love "cats", my three domestic shorthairs are my ode to the "big guys". They deserve such a beautiful life.

    Thank goodness for the rescue of these poor beautiful animals. Thank you, everyone involved in their rescue and placement in facilities where they will be properly cared for. Their lives will become so much nicer for the rest rest of their lives. We need to support these organizations who come to the rescue of helpless exotic animals with our money and time.

    HSUS did a tremendous service to the wildlife — help protect future abuse of wildlife by supporting changes to Kansas laws.
