Who are the people who make this imprisonment profitable?
Being a mall side-show is no life for a cub.
I would raise the roof if I saw this horrid injustice at a mall. I would be heard before security hauled me off.
We ned to educate the unenlightened how this is not entertainment, nor educational for children. Well, if properly addressed, it could be a change to teach empathy and kindness. "Billy, how do you think this little cub likes being indoors in a cage? How would you feel if you couldn't play outside or couldn't live in your own house?" Children can learn without these poor creatures being forced to suffer their entire lives.
Humans are incredibly stupid and self-centered.
Animals are not here for our amusement.

Oh Lord, here we go again. What in the devil is WRONG with those people??? They wouldn't do it to their own children, so why are they doing it to animals? Because they're stupid, insensitive, ignorant, and got their pea-sized brains fixed on profit, that's why. Will there EVER come a time when animals really DO have rights over the sickness in people?

I get so tired of people that put the almighty dollar over the lives of these magnificent creatures. I don't believe animals were put on this earth for the entertainment of people. The CEO of these Mall's should be ashamed of themselves and should do the right thing and stop this and send the babies back to Mom.

Good for you Cher............. there should never be animals held in captivity for profit. Creditable Zoos provide breeding programmes for endangered species. Sadly too many species are under threat so it sickens us to see this type of skullduggery going on.

Is it the breeding taking place in the U.S. or just luggage stuffed with baby cubs that somehow crossed the borders under CITES nose(s) .... just asking !

This is so tragic. These magnificent animals ending up to be either roadside zoo attractions or put in a cage at a mall just so that humans can say they saw a tiger! To sacrifice these animals in such a way makes us seem as if we have no dignity and that some will stoop to any level, even terrible animal exploitation and cruelty, to make a few dollars extra! WE must never be quiet about these great injustices to animals. We must be their voice and keep up our protesting until they listen! Bless those cubs and their mother who've paid such a price for our stupidity and unkindness! My heart aches for their freedom. Signed letter and shared.

It breaks my heart to see animals treated like that. How can we human beings be so cruel? How can we put such marvellous animals in cages just for the sake of a few dollars.

It never fails to amaze me how stupid, calloused morons get into managing positions! Who hired these Neanderthals? I guess only another one of their kind!

Most of the time a mall is doing lousy is because of all the sameness they share with others. How about getting in different stores or products not poor animals which need fresh air not the stink and noise of a mall!

When I was growing up I was not allowed to go to the zoo, but since then zoo's can be good, like for endangered species and injured animals, ect. I am not saying zoos are good, but they have made vast improvements. I have gone on school feild trips to the zoo with my son and I teach him about how it is like a luxury prison, but it they do have some benefits. There are two sides to every coin.
I wonder if the misery of these poor animals even actually benefits them financially? I would be scared to go as those cages do not look very safe. Wild animals are wild. Duh!
