Cats should be free to be cats
Cats should be free to be cats


It seems that no one in Iowa is speaking up for the cubs.


The fair and government agencies have failed them, so we are asking you to make their voice heard.


Send your letter here: Let the media in Davenport, Iowa know that it is NOT ok to exhibit tiger cubs at the Mississippi Valley Fair and you want them to expose the truth about these displays. The high today in Davenport is 96 degrees and tomorrow will be 99 degrees! The fair is open each day from 8 am until midnight. The poor cubs must be exhausted in the heat and long fair hours. We know that at least one cub has been sick with diarrhea. Would you please take a minute to politely speak up for the cubs?


To find out more about the outfits at the fair who are using big cats please read these pages:


It would also be helpful for you to post your distaste for wildcats at the fair on the fair’s Facebook page:


And calling the news stations lets them know that this is important and they should be doing investigative work, not fluff pieces that encourage abuse.

Fox 18 and ABC 8



Quad City Times

The fair’s vet had to treat at least one cub for diarrhea but still let the show go on:
