Animal Abuse Happening Right Next to Big Cat Rescue

 

http://www.myfoxtampabay.com/story/18783952/2012/06/14/in-citrus-park-shock-over-slaughter-allegations

 

We agree that we need a law to ban horse slaughter, but the blame really needs to be assigned to the people who are breeding or buying horses and dumping them. When people give away their horses, or sell them at auction or to people they don’t know, or do not provide proper security to their pastures, the horses can end up in the hands of people who will kill them and sell them for their meat.

 

This expose came about due to the undercover work of Animal Recovery Mission

 

Note to ARM:  Thank you for exposing the horrid conditions that farm animals are forced to endure in the Citrus Park area next door to Big Cat Rescue. We have complained, repeatedly over the years, to Animal Services and the Sheriff’s department about the starving animals, the screams and the shots fired through our adjoining fence. We worked with the Sheriff’s office to let them see over our wall into the “farm” but didn’t hear anything more about it until you went public. They have since been back to investigate further and Victor Crist is a known animal lover who will surely work to close the loop hole that has allowed this to happen. For years we have had signs up on our tour path stating that our cages are cleaned daily and that the wretched smell was coming from the pig farm next door. Now people know for sure that we were telling the truth.
