Letter to the Today Show
You could be doing something positive and uplifting, like interviewing Scott Lope, one of the top 10 contestants in Animal Planet's Hero of the Year Awards http://animal.discovery.com/roar/hero-of-the-year/vote/
instead of trotting out two of the worst animal abusers known to wild animals.
If anyone at your station had just googled their names they would have found plenty of reasons that these people should be banned from society for all of their egotistical and selfish exploitation of wild animals.
Please run a poll on your site asking if people believe that big cats should be bred for life in cages and you will see that the vast majority of your viewers oppose everything that those two stand for.
Here are just a few of our poll results:
|Should animals be inbred to create coat colors that do not survive in the wild?|
All white tigers are inbred to create the white coat. It is the only way to get a white coat in a tiger and always results in the cat being cross eyed as their optic nerves are wired to the wrong side of the brain by the same gene.
|Should big cats be made to perform in circus acts?|
|Do you think big cats should be exhibited at fairs?|
|Did you know that having your picture made with a cub will result in that cat living a miserable life in a tiny cage, or that he may end up being killed for his bones, skin and meat?|
|Zoos say that having animals in cages causes people to support them in the wild. Based upon the amount of money that you have given to protect habitat, based upon seeing an animal in a cage, would you say this is True or False?|
For the cats,
