If ARFF was to pick one animal exhibitor in the State of Florida with the worst record of animal neglect, there would be many nominees but the distinction would have to go to Vanishing Species Wildlife, Inc.

Please contact the U.S. Department of Agriculture and politely ask that it revoke the exhibitor license of Vanishing Species Wildlife, Inc. (license #58-C-0660) because of its long history of Animal Welfare Act violations.

Unbelievable dorkos. Are those people on heavy drugs or are they just simply out of their minds!? They are the ones that should vanish not he species that they claim to keep from not vanishing.
