The ultimate cruel activity of "man". To imprison the symbol of freedom, a bird. A very perverse action that defies understanding. What joy is there in watching an imprisoned animal unless there is some strange vicarious pleasure in controlling a weaker species.

Please note my comment on BarbCat's post and I hope this clears up some of the misunderstanding. GW Exotics flunkies have gotten quite nasty with us here at Care2 in the past commenting on Simone's and Cher's stories calling us all at Care2 "animal %#&!*% (Cher and Simone does this jog the memory.?) I will never forget these creeps and they didn't scare us away then, so they've got a different approach now to discredit Big Cat Rescue so they can continue torturing baby cubs....
Gudrun D.. left a comment on the following article:
Let me expound on this and hopefully bring understanding regarding this....GW have buried many dead cubs and they are on the verge of being shut down in OK more than likely these photos are from their operation GW Exotic Animals Park - link to site AKA Big Cat Entertainment. http://www.gwpark.org/ Here's Big Cat Rescue's petition against Big Cat Entertainment Orchards Mall in Benton Harbor MI Hosts Abusive Tiger Cub Display Ask the mall and the government to end this kind of abuse Despite hundred of calls and emails asking them not to do it, the Orchards Mall in Benton Harbor, MI is allowing a group that incessantly breeds and exhibits tiger cubs for profit to display their cubs at the mall from July 13-15. The group, which exhibits throughout the Midwest under various names, is calling themselves Big Cat Rescue Entertainment while in Benton Harbor. Big Cat Rescue Entertainment is NOT to be confused with Tampa, Florida-based Big Cat Rescue, the largest accredited sanctuary in the world dedicated entirely to abused and abandoned big cats. Oklahoma-based Big Cat Rescue Entertainment uses the almost identical name in order to dupe and confuse the public. In fact, Big Cat Rescue has filed a Federal intellectual property lawsuit to stop this group from using its name. “Big Cat Rescue Entertainment is a group of unscrupulous breeders of big cats, especially tigers, who travel the country displaying tiger cubs at malls and offering the mall’s customers – for a fee of about $25 – the opportunity to pet the cubs and have a photo taken with them, “explained Carole Baskin, founder and CEO of Tampa’s Big Cat Rescue sanctuary and a nationally recognized expert on the plight of exotic cats. “These breeders often promote their &ldquoay to play with cubs” scheme under the guise of providing consumers with education about the plight of exotic cats. But the truth is they are exhibiting the cubs only to make money.” Without knowing the facts, seeing children pet cute tiger cubs seems adorable and innocent. But in reality these cubs endure a miserable existence while they are on display and then are destined, in most cases, to a life sentence in deplorable conditions or are killed as part of the billion-dollar illegal trade in tiger parts. Big Cat Rescue contacted the Orchards Mall Marketing Manager Michelle Grimm last week asking that they view TigerCubAbuse.com to see the kind of outfit they were hosting. If Grimm had contacted the USDA, the governmental body that oversees exotic animal displays, she would have found that this Oklahoma group is currently under investigation for the deaths of 23 tiger cubs just last year. And the group has been investigated and fined for numerous violations over the years. “We are deeply concerned that the Orchards Mall do not care about the safety of their patrons or about the abuse these tiny, defenseless animals are forced to endure,” said Baskin. “More and more malls across the country are banning these cub displays as they learn about the abuse to the animals. Just last week, after the Concord Mall saw how much it angered their patrons to see such abuse, the manager said they would probably never have them back. Research shows that mall patrons are disgusted by these exhibits and will not continue to shop at malls that host them. It is truly a shame that the Orchards Mall insist upon allowing animal abuse at their mall.” http://capwiz.com/bigcatrescue/issues/alert/?alertid=51344516
