CBS’ Inside Edition Did an Expose on Joe Schreibvogel’s Cub Petting Business

http://youtu.be/l5so9pLXO30

This aired on Inside Edition on Nov. 28, 2011. Inside Edition had current video footage of Joe Schreibvogel’s sick tiger cubs, his current and open USDA investigation, the recent deaths of 23 of his cubs and Joe’s lie about it being the formula when FDA was quoted at the end of the segment as saying that the formula was not to blame. The video shows a bald flaky patch on one of the sickly cubs that appears to be ringworm, which is highly contagious to humans. Inside Edition did not mention the ringworm, but anyone who has petted cubs at the mall should report to USDA below if they contracted ringworm as a result. These cases need to be reported as it is one more way of letting the USDA know that this sort of abuse is dangerous to the public.

Here are a few steps you can take so that no more cubs end up suffering at the hands of exploiters who breed them to make money off them as photo and petting props.

1. Send a letter to lawmakers asking for a law against using wild animals this way at CatLaws.com

2. Send a letter to USDA and ask that the revoke the license of Joe Schreibvogel who runs G.W. Exotic Animals and ask them to fine him for the deaths of 23 cubs.
