Im just sad about the treatment of wild animals in US , any wild animal seems to allowed as pets,or kept in roadside zoos, your citizens still go and shoot all the wild animals in Africa during so called "Canned Hunting" for trophies...and sadly so many other nations have dated and unnecessary violence toward animals labeled as a "tradition"... When will we wake up???

Isaac Bashevis Singer Nobel Peace Prize Winner wrote in his book, 'Enemies a love story', "As often has Herman had witnessed the slaughter of animals and fish, he always had the same thought. In their behaviour toward creatures, all men were Nazis. The smugness with which man could do with other species as he pleased exemplify the most extreme racist theories the principle that might is right. Lest we forget!

Reading this sad story reminded me of the movie, "Free Willy" I kept hoping the authorities would show up and rescue these animals. I doubt that they could make it in the wild at this point, but aren't there any laws to require humane conditions? Seems like a form of prostitution in a way - people getting their jollies from being photographed with big, caged cats!
