PETA continues to win for big cats, while the villains of Tiger King are finally paying for the years of suffering they’ve caused countless animals. Since the show first aired, the use of big cats for photo ops has plummeted—and nearly every abuser featured in the series is either locked up, barred from ever exhibiting animals to the public again, out of business, or facing charges of wildlife trafficking, cruelty to animals, and money laundering.
But to shut down the dark big-cat trade featured in Tiger King—which lines its pockets by breeding big cats, removing vulnerable cubs from their mothers to use as photo props, and discarding them when they grow too big—Congress must pass the Big Cat Public Safety Act (HR 263/S 1210). This critical legislation would prohibit private ownership of big cats and restrict direct contact between them and the public, putting an end to cruel and dangerous cub-petting operations run by “Tiger King” wannabes.
This bill has broad bipartisan support, and thanks to your help, HR 263 passed the House of Representatives on International Tiger Day (July 29). Let’s keep the momentum going in the Senate!
Please urge your senators to support S 1210.
