    It seems to me that the flood of exotic/wild animals to the US could be stanched by the federal and state government passing laws against traffic in exotic animals except to qualified institutions. There are reports of so many pythons escaping into the marshes of Florida that a new wildlife picture is being drawn and the snakes are moving into pupulated areas!
    Of special interest to anybody who cares about animals is the need to provide sanctuary to animals rescued from brutal/idiot owners, which is what the Parkers intended to provide. Government must take the initiative to HELP sanctuaries locate appropriately, set up their facilities and establish standards of care for the animals, and do it now. Once established according to standards, the sanctuary can be licensed, after all, the great cats and other exotics already here must have someplace to go! What happens to the rest of Tiger Haven's cats? Are you aware that all sanctuaries are filled to capacity with rescues? All this the result of letting every macho dope own a big cat!
