The big cats don't belong in cages and people need to realize they are not big friendly pussy cats.

"The organisation said at least 40 people had been injured or killed at captive carnivore facilities since 1996."
"11 of the victims were children and two of these children died as a result of their injuries."

No mention anywhere what happens to the Lions, except for GROSS mistreatment all their caged lives!!!
🤬 🤬 🤬 🤬
