"Big Cat Rescue Entertainment Group breeds baby tigers and lions, removes them from their mothers shortly after being born, stashes them in a tour truck and carts them from mall to mall."

Unbelievably hurtles. How will someone of these creatures feel like if their baby is taken and use for such "entertainment"?!

Thank you. This is so wrong and should be stopped. Why can't people leave the animals alone?

“They are a group that travels the country, displaying tiger cubs and other exotic animals,” said Big Cat Rescue public relations representative Susan Bass. “They visit communities and say they are doing great work in education. In fact they are incessant breeders. They sell them to private zoos, or keep them in deplorable conditions in their private facilities.”
At the mall on Wednesday, Corley confirmed her organization is not affiliated with Big Cat Rescue and yes, they do breed exotic animals for display. Animals not on display remain at the facility in Oklahoma, she said.
“We are working to educate people that exotic animals don’t make good pets,” Corley said.
The founder of the similarly-named rescue organization in Florida had strong criticism for Big Cat Rescue Entertainment’s message.
“Groups like this understand that the only way to sell their concept is to say it’s for education,” said Big Cat Rescue founder Carole Baskin said in an interview from her sanctuary in Tampa on Wednesday. “They are sending the worst possible message, that these animals can be made into pets. It’s way to easy to get your hands on these animals that grow up to be several hundred pounds of a top level predator.”
U.S. Department of Agriculture regulations say that the public is only allowed to touch an exotic animal if it is between the age of 8-12 weeks, Baskin said.

Soon there will be no animals left in their natural habitats, you just have to look at the last hundred years, the habitat loss has been incredibly horrible. The innocent animals are the ones that suffer, if this keeps up man will be next in line, as population increases and resources dwindle,doesn't anybody remember EASTER ISLAND,history will repeat itself, this I do believe.

Many of these cubs are taken early from their mothers and have their teeth and claws removed. When their "cute" wears off, they are killed or sold to very low end zoos.
