Big Cat Display Polls and Stats

If anyone at your organization had just googled the name of the people who dragged baby lions and tigers to Courtland Center Mall in Burton, Oklahoma they would have found plenty of reasons to deny their request to set up shop in your backyard.

Associating yourself with animal abuse does far more harm to your brand than you may realize.

All white tigers are inbred to create the white coat.  It is the only way to get a white coat in a tiger and always results in the cat being cross eyed as their optic nerves are wired to the wrong side of the brain by the same gene.

In addition to being cruel, these traveling circuses are endangering the public.  The following is a partial listing (592) of incidents in the U.S. involving captive exotic cats since 1990. The U.S. incidents have resulted in the deaths of 21 humans, 16 adults and 5 children, the additional mauling of 196 more adults and children, 173 escapes, the killing of 94 big cats, and 126 confiscations.  These figures only represent the headlines that Big Cat Rescue has been able to track.  Because there is no reporting agency that keeps such records the actual numbers are certainly much higher.

The display may have attracted some ignorant people, but not the kind who can afford your products and services.  Please join the growing list of retailers who refuse to enable these traveling side shows to continue breeding and exploiting exotic animals.
