Big Cat Updates
Coordinator Report – Afton Tasler
Good day, today!
We got a lot of sign-offs done today for tours and specialty tours, operant, and enrichment.
Tanya Chute and Dylan Lavigne finished Nabisco Bobcat’s enclosure by grass seeding and scrubbing the platform.
Tanya Chute, Dylan Lavigne, Bridget Sardone, Stephanie Chaiser, and Afton Tasler worked on a tiger enclosure with coaching from another tiger. It was cleaned from top to bottom entirely, and we also raked around the outside. It still needs to be grass seeded and the pools skimmed and cleaned a bit. We had a lot of fun during projects!! Watch the video posted lol!!

Merchandise of the Day
Design by Clara Dudley to raise awareness for Big Cat Rescue. An estimated 10,000 to 20,000 big cats languish in deplorable conditions in backyards, roadside zoos, and traveling exhibits throughout the US. Tigers and lions should not be pets or bred and exploited for profit. While some states have regulations that attempt to protect big cats, decades of experience have proven they don’t work.
The only solution is to pass the Big Cat Public Safety Act – federal legislation that would end owning big cats as pets and stop cub petting, the #1 cause of big cat abuse. Your purchase helps Big Cat Rescue provide rehab care of native bobcats and permanent care of nearly 60 abandoned and abused Big Cats. https://teespring.com/big-cat-act-dot-com
