Big Cats Make Bad Pets! Cheyenne (5 years old) visited Big Cat Rescue for the first time, learned about the sanctuary's mission and why tigers and lions DON'T belong in backyards!
It is estimated that there are 10,000 to 20,000 big cats currently held in private ownership in the U.S., although the exact number remains a mystery. In the past 21 years, U.S. incidents involving captive big cats-including tigers, lions, cougars, leopards, jaguars, cheetahs and lion/tiger hybrids-have resulted in the deaths of 22 humans, 248 maulings, 260 escapes, 144 big cats deaths and 141 confiscations.
You can help feed the cats at no cost to you using Amazon Smile!
