Battle brews over big cats, exotic wildlife
This is a great opportunity to see inside Vernon Yates compound. He almost never allows the press inside and people would be appalled to see these magnificent cats living in concrete cells and such tiny areas. His crocodile tears over using these prisoners to make him feel better at the end of the day, just focuses on how selfish one has to be to cage a big cat for their own pleasure.
I will be attending the meeting on Feb. 7th and 8th to support Bill Armstrong’s position that these animals do not belong in private hands. He is the past President of the Florida Animal Control Association and has also encouraged the Florida Association of Counties to take a stand against these kinds of back yard menageries. He has served on the Captive Wild Animal Technical Assistance Group as well, but is one of only two people on that 11 person committee who doesn’t make a living from the exotic animal industry.
For the cats,
