Stop Traveling Exhibit From Exploiting Baby Animals (Video)

Alliance for Animals sent out an alert that Big Cat Rescue Entertainment Group is once again on tour traveling to malls with their exhibit of very young exotic animals; some as young as two-weeks-old. They ask for public support to stop the events if they come to your town.

Alliance for Animals calls Big Cat Rescue Entertainment, “One of the most notorious breeders of baby lions and tigers. This business makes a profit by breeding tiger cubs, taking them from their mothers shortly after birth, and abusing them by carting them around from mall to mall charging people to pet them and be photographed with the young cubs.”

Big Cat Rescue Entertainment, which is run by Joe Schreibvogel has been involved in incidents where “employees blatantly violate the laws and endanger the cubs and the public.” In one video a child is bitten by a cub and another video shows a sick cub on display for people to pet.

Big Cat Rescue Entertainment touts its exhibits are a way to educate the public about the dangers of keeping exotic animals.

The non-profit group is involved in several lawsuits and the organization has nearly a dozen aliases.  They are currently being sued in federal court by an accredited sanctuary called Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, Florida for use of their name.    

If the Big Cat exhibit lands in your town, Alliance for Animals suggests that you immediately contact the mall manager to let them know you do not want the exhibit in your area.

What's wrong with these people? It must be stopped....human greed should not involve baby wild animals being paraded about from place to place like a piece of art!! These people are a disgrace and should be ashamed of themselves. Put a stop to this unacceptable treatment of baby wild animals NOW.

Using animals in this way in order to make money has to be stopped! Those animals belong in the wild and should not be in travelling circuses like this!

This is obvious abuse to the young cats and to the older ones 'in storage'. Where are your animal protection authorities? Why aren't they doing their job? Who gives morons like these a permit? Yes, who is the actual person that signed the permit? Why isn't there more of an outcry from the American public? Why aren't the newspapers, tv and radio programmes involved? This can't be allowed to continue.
