It’s been a banner year for PETA and big cats and a deservedly rotten year for the villains the public was introduced to in the first season of Tiger King. Since the show first aired, the use of big cats for photo ops has plummeted and nearly every abuser featured in the series has been locked up, gone out of business, or faced civil lawsuits or criminal charges.
At the end of 2020, the Big Cat Public Safety Act passed in the U.S. House of Representatives by a strong majority, thanks to feedback from compassionate constituents like you and the groundswell of momentum following the attention that Tiger King brought to this issue. The Senate failed to pass the legislation before the last session ended, but now that the bill has been reintroduced and Tiger King 2 has the world’s attention focused on this issue again, it’s more important than ever to appeal to your members of Congress to push the Big Cat Public Safety Act (HR 263/S 1210) over the finish line.
If passed, the measure 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.
We need your help again! Please urge your members of Congress to support HR 263/S 1210.
To help end public contact with tigers and other big cats as well as private breeding and possession of these animals, please use the form below to let your U.S. representative and senators know that you support the Big Cat Public Safety Act (HR 263/S 1210), which would end private ownership of dangerous big cats, safeguarding both wild animals and communities across the U.S.
