Great-I hope the poor tiger and monkeys kept at a "zoo" 5 miles from here get good homes at a decent zoo with plenty of living space instead of tiny cages.

A big THANK YOU to West Virginia for setting an example. I DO hope and pray the rest of the country will follow suite. Texans are recorded as 'owning' more tigers than any other place and there's only 3,000 left in the wild.
