Kate Walsh Loves Big Cat Rescue
Kate Walsh, star of Private Practice, has been tweeting about how much she loved Big Cat Rescue after her visit this morning: http://twitter.com/#!/katewalsh She was in town to promote her new Boyfriend perfume and found out about Big Cat Rescue from a coffee table book that is found in most local hotels. Being a big cat lover, she just had to check it out. Kate was so pleased with the sanctuary that she agreed to join our Celebrity Advisory Board.
Some celebrities, like Kate Walsh, get it and others don’t. In back to back celebrity stories the common thread was how to treat a tiger.
The “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” star wed the “I Kissed a Girl” hitmaker in India last month at an exotic resort situated close to a tiger sanctuary. Russell Brand denied the gift of a tiger to his new bride Katy Perry to the British TV show Loose Women saying, “I’m a vegetarian, you don’t give people tigers. It’s stupid, it’s dangerous. The tiger won’t like it.”
Meanwhile, Celebrities Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green decided it would be a great photo op to play with a chained adult tiger and bottle feed a baby tiger. There is no good place that will let you touch a tiger cub, but Karl Mitchell was the owner of this facility. He has a notorious criminal, as well as animal abuse, record that stretches back decades to 1985. Recently featured on Animal Planet’s “Fatal Attractions,” he was seen inside his tiger cages slapping and boxing his tigers in the face. California’s Fish and Game, after seizing animals from him in the past, have characterized him as “a dangerous person and a serious liability to any person or animal he’s involved with.”
Many years ago, Big Cat Rescue took in two of Mitchell’s abused cats. After her rescue, Dara, the cougar, died from a fatal brain infection from the severity of Mitchell’s blows to her skull. Shaquille, the black leopard, received beatings that crushed his eye sockets and caused permanent eye damage that he suffered from all of his life.
