Big Cat Updates

Cats On The Move:

  • Kricket Serval went on FunCation.
  • Apollo Lynx went home.
  • Frosty Serval moved to the outdoor recovery cage.

Apollo Lynx Went Home

Afton:  Apollo was treated like a king on his ride back to his enclosure. Sarah B., Abbey, Teagan, and Steph had to lift him up high to get him over the barricade. He was happy to be home!

Lynda Licht:¬†¬†Sarah didn’t stand a chance next to all those tall interns. But she powers through!!

Sue Messineo’s Coordinator Notes for 8/4/2018

Thanks to Jen R, Steve & Candy answering my call for help, along with the wonderful volunteers who had signed up early, we got feeding and cleaning done with a bunch of sign-offs as well. Sign-offs done for both volunteers and Interns… feeding, cleaning, enrichment & operant.

It was a beautiful day! All the cats ate really well!

Mya and Sam Interns weeded all but 2 small cat lockouts in the front section and Candy weeded 5 tiger lockouts.

Frosty and Nabisco both did well today

Keeper Sue Messineo:  Frosty is not in the outside hospital recovery cage since Apollo went home.  He is enjoying an afternoon chicken cicle.

Part 1 of 8 - Why Regulating Conditions Under Which Big Cats Are Kept SIMPLY DOES NOT and CANNOT WORK

This is part 1 of 8.  Over the next seven days, I will post one more part.  Then on the eighth day, I will post a quiz.

This is part 1 of 8, is it just an introductory paragraph.  Over the next seven days, I will post one more lesson from this unit.  Then on the eighth day, I will post a quiz.

Class Unit: Why Regulations Won’t Work
Lesson: 1 of 8 (Introductory)

Class Unit: Why Regulations Won't Work Lesson: 1 of 8
Class Unit: Why Regulations Won’t Work
Lesson: 1 of 8

The only way to stop the abuse of big cats in captivity is to ban private ownership.¬† Trying to ‚Äúregulate‚ÄĚ the conditions under which the cats are kept by private owners is simply impossible. This has been proven by years of experience despite good intentions by enforcement officials.

You may be asking why we would say those things. If you continue on through the next few lessons/posts you will understand why.

Part 2 will post in tomorrow’s Big Cat Update and will further explain exactly why “Regulations Can’t and Won’t Work.”¬† If you don’t want to wait, or if you missed previous lessons, you can join our Facebook group at Facebook.com/groups/BigCatRescue/ and once there click or tap on the “Units” tab and then scroll down to the unit called “Why Regulations Won’t Work”
