where will the ringling cats go



The owner of Ringling circus is petitioning the USDA to allow 8 of their circus tigers to be exported to Germany where they will reportedly be forced to perform in another circus! It’s extremely disappointing that Ringling will not retire these tigers to a GFAS-accredited sanctuary such as Big Cat Rescue; instead they hope to continue to exploit these poor tigers!

Take Action buttonRingling’s application states they want to export the captive-born tigers “to enhance the survival of the species.” This is ridiculous in that Ringling’s captive tigers have ZERO conservation value and their offspring cannot be released into the wild.
