    I live within a quarter mile of Karl and Kayla Mitchell's Big Cat Encounters in Pahrump, NV and they are up and running. In fact I just heard the lions talking a few minutes ago. Please double check your info before posting it!!!!

    I wish you would be a little more detailed on the “too big” to fail. You make it sound as if these sanctuaries are on the brink of failure or that somehow they are “questionable”. The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Colorado is a large sanctuary, very true. But do you know much about them? They are a TRUE sanctuary, no breeding, no exploitation, no entertainment. These animals have an amazing life and many were rescued from some of the stories you site here. They have been in operation for 31 years. They have recently acquired 400 more acres on top the of the over 300 through a private donation. The problem is truly the laws, it is or should be, every sanctuaries dream to close due to lack of animals needing homes. Laws do need to be passed to ban the auction and the ownership of exotic animals.
