Send a letter to the organizers of the pet expo and let them know that having Darryl Atkinson bring baby big cats for photo ops is not being kind to animals.

It has come to my attention that you are having Darryl Atkinson of Horseshoe Creek speak on the topic of exotic cats as pets.  Given the fact that he went to jail last year for the horrid conditions of his big cat breeding facility and the squalid conditions we filmed there this month, I would hope that you would cancel his presentation and find someone credible to discuss why big cats should not be kept as pets.  There are a lot of experts on this who live in D.C. that work for the Humane Society of the United States, the International Fund for Animal Welfare and the Animal Protection Institute.  Darryl was just in the news last week for having bred a tabby tiger, which, just like the white tiger is produced only from severe inbreeding.  This man is no friend to the animals and not someone that should be promoted as an expert… other than as an expert at deceiving the public.

Please let me know that you have canceled this presenter.  Otherwise, I will need to alert the media so that they are not mis-lead about who and what he really is and that would be an embarrassment to the pet expo.  Thank you for looking into this and I am happy to provide far more detail on his activities if necessary.  Just the very fact that he is coming with babies bred merely for photo ops says it all.



For the cats,
