This senseless tragedy unfolded in Zanesville, Ohio, but it could just as easily have been in Tampa or any other city in Florida.

No private Zoo.
Impel regulative: people in connection with wild should pass rigid control from time to time during all working period, sort flight controllers at the airport . Both are responsible for lives and personal must be stable.

Humans have betrayed these big cats & many other wild animals. It is a sad state of affairs, & the Human race should really be ashamed of themselves!

Animals are not toys or weapons or trophies.

Animals are living souls.

My prayer for all the abused, tortured, exploited and murdered animals

Compassion is the source of happiness in life….Without loving kindness and compassion, there is no peace or happiness in the family, the society, the country, or the world. 'With the Medicine Buddha mantra you can liberate numberless sentient beings from oceans of suffering and bring them to enlightenment.' - Lama Zopa. Tayata Om Bekanze Bekanze Maha BeKanze Radza Samudgate Soha
- Lama Zopa Rinpoche

How can it be allowed to have wild animals as pets? Aren't there any regulations against it? This has to stop!

I wouldn't say it could happen to "ANY" city in Florida. It couldn't happen in Coral Springs, Florida. They have so many rules and laws (and they enforce them), you're lucky that they allow you to own a dog.

He shouldn't have been able to keep these animals esepcially with how many times there were people sent out due to complaints on abuse to the animals makes me so mad they did not shut him down sooner. These animals finally got free after being in tiny itty bitty cages they ran, ran as far as they could then got shot some life.

So many animals being abused by sicko humans, wild or domestic animals. It's so out of hand. It's just horrible what man does to them.
