Thanks! I give to them when I can ---- and truly believe the wild animals belong in the wild --- not cages in a zoo, hope they can release them at least to a preserve!

Noted. Another reason why people should not own wildlife. They get abandoned and of course, the animals are out of their own environments. Thanks Cher!

Such beautiful animals! I can't understand why anyone would want to keep them penned up like that and then abandon them. They don't belong in cages. But since they can't be released back into the wild, at least they are now in more humane conditions and have access to food and clean water.

"The owner of the animals has been cited for 10 violations, including cruelty to animals and violations of the Dangerous Regulated Animals Act."

Oh no! They got tickets? This scum should be jailed. Do the animals have to actually starve to death before they're charged with a serious crime and jailed? Every last penny they have should be taken and used to feed and house those animals. There's a special place in hell for anyone who could just walk away from a caged animal and leave it to starve.

Good job that the police and rescue organizations completed. The owner should receive jail time.

It just amazes me how anyone can keep exotic wildlife in their own backyard and noone thinks to contact the authorities??? Is it such common place?? Thank God they have been rescued,and sent to places that will take care of them,BUT WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND JUST UP AND ABANDONS THESE ANIMALS??? the people could have at least contacted someone when they left the property.The video of the tiger in its new enclosure was wonderful to watch,it looked very relaxed and comfy,with toys,grass under foot,and fresh water to drink,each and everyone of these gorgeous animals is so precious,we need to take so much better care of everyone of them.

Glad the animals were discovered and found homes. What happened to the idiot who abandoned these animals? Was they prosecuted? They need to be and used as an example of what will happen to anyone who abandons an animal.

Those that abandon or abuse animals should be put in the care of the animals they disrespect. Thank goodness there are people and organisations that care.

Why can't they fine the owner for abandoning the animals to recoup the cost of housing the animals?

Noted and signed - this is how wicked we as humans really are - we take them from their environment to feed our own greed, and then we abandon them without food or water and unable to fend for themselves. We cannot be called human if we can do these atrocious things.
