It's Sink or Swim for Tiger Cubs
If you haven't seen the Good Morning America story, here is the link: http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2012/10/swim-with-a...
The REAL question is how can the Florida Wildlife Commission (FWC) and the USDA be aware of the "swim with tiger cub encounters" at Dade City's Wild Things for the last TWO YEARS and not shut them down? Big Cat Rescue has repeatedly filed complaints with both governmental agencies about this issue and many others at this backyard zoo, which has the gall to claim to be a sanctuary and rehabilitation facility for wildlife! Learn more about this roadside zoo at www.TigerCubAbuse2.com.
So far our complaints to both agencies have seemingly fallen on deaf ears. Yet the FWC recently stated that children swimming in pools with young alligators whose mouths were taped shut was wrong. Huh? Swimming with alligators is wrong but swimming with tiger cubs is ok?
Well, finally, the national exposure Dade City's Wild Things received on Good Morning America has backfired on them: thousands of animal lovers from around the country and the world have seen the broadcast and are incensed. Big Cat Rescue has received hundreds of calls, emails and posts on our Facebook page since the story aired. People are outraged and want to SHUT THIS DOWN.
Won't you help us? Please speak up for Tony, Tarzan and the other tiger and lion cubs at Dade City's Wild Things and politely let the FWC and USDA know that we are no longer going to tolerate this abuse!
