Why Big Cats Need Sanctuaries

Most people think that it is because of the exotic pet trade that most big cats end up in need of sanctuary, but that’s only partially correct.  The main reason there are thousands of lions and tigers languishing in backyard cages and roadside tourist traps is because the public will pay to pet a cub, or will pay to see a cub.  As long as people will pay to pet or see cubs, exploiters will breed them for that purpose and then discard them to any place that will take them after they are no longer profitable.  More about that here:
