Today at Big Cat Rescue Oct 21

Oct 21, 2011 is the last day to ask the USFWS to rescind the generic tiger loophole. Tell them you support their new rule at CatLaws.com

Ch 9 and Ch 12 spoke out against the practice of dragging cubs out to malls.

On the very day Ohio Governor John Kasich announced he's cracking down on exotic pets, the I-team found a traveling exhibit showcasing wild animals right here in the Tri-State.

G.W Exotics Animal Foundation brought its caged tigers on display at Northgate Mall three days after a Zanesville man set free his lions, tigers and bears, then killed himself. Police shot and killed 49 of the wild animals.  More here:

A Colerain Tonwship mall is the target in animal abuse complaints because of a big cat exhibit going on there right now.  Northgate Mall has an exhibition this weekend called the "Big Cats Live Tour." It runs through Sunday at the mall's center court.

The exhibit offers the chance to get up close and personal, and have pictures taken with the cubs in what organizers call a safe environment. Many rescue groups object to the exhibition of these animals at places like malls, saying it's bad for a whole list of reasons. They say the cubs should not have direct contact with so many humans at such a young age, that the exhibits send the wrong message about exotic animals as pets, that the constant travel and flashes from cameras is very harmful to the animals, and that paying to pet tigers does not support conservation in the wild.

The information from Northgate Mall says the organization holding the exhibit was created to raise awareness of the plight of exotic animals kept as pets. But Big Cat Rescue of Tampa, Florida objects to this exhibitor specifically.

The rescue group says Joe Schreibvogel of "GW Exotic Animals" is using the name "Big Cat Rescue Entertainment" in the Tri-state. But that's just one of several aliases Schreibvogel and his associates use all over the country. He runs a private roadside zoo in Oklahoma. The USDA cited Schreibvogel last month for failure to provide veterinary care. He was previously fined $25,000 for violations of the Animal Welfare Act.
