ACTION ALERT & THANK YOU!!

Big Cat Rescue's Action Alert for Avni tigress
Big Cat Rescue’s Action Alert for Avni tigress

A HUGE shout out to everyone who has been submitting and sharing Big Cat Rescue’s Action Alert for Avni tigress! We are closing in on 10,000 emails sent to high-ranking officials in India including the President and Prime Minister! Our animal advocate contacts on the ground in India who are feverishly meeting with officials to persuade them to rescind the shoot to kill order on Avni report officials are taking notice of the thousands of emails and that the world does not want to see Avni killed!

From our contacts: “THANK YOU Big Cat Rescue Team and all the supporters. It’s happening. Those 9000 + emails are making an impact. Media is reaching out and telecasting. Ministers are frustrated. Avni’s story is being telecasted by Mirror Now, a news channel. More activists are going to go on air in India tonight.”

If you haven’t submitted our Action Alert yet, here is the link: http://salsa4.salsalabs.com/o/51389/p/dia/action4/common/public/?action_KEY=25559

Coordinator Report – Afton Tasler

Great day today! The weather pretty nice, especially in the morning and evening!  Daniel drove around and collected a bunch of sticks around the property.  Big enrichment was removed from all enclosures.  Manny got a barrel put in his enclosure.  Zucari Serval’s section closest to Gilligan was cleaned top to bottom.  Pumpkins will start to go into the cages on Tuesday!
