Now We’re Talking!!! For Anyone and Everyone Who Has Lost Property and NOT Convicted of Any Crime!!!

•March 28, 2017 • 1 Comment

What?!? There just might be some humanity left in the world?!? Heck yes!!! Thanks to Rand Paul justice just might be restored!

How many animal owners have lost their animals to government thieves who conspired to take their animals-Guilty of no crime yet the animals disappear with a blink of the eye…No trial-No Judgement of any criminal offense-Never compensated! There was no rescue and simply a matter of forming a conspiracy to do it because some jerk wanted to so they could and easily got away with it while hiding the subject matter jurisdictions of their courts, what type of case it was  In Texas, for example, they have 2 years to come up with something anything to file criminal charges but the charges already dropped there was no way to have done that…But hey, while you have no problem comprehending that the case was illegal. The federal courts could have cared less and allowed the case to be dismissed without so much as a discussion and there was no statement of all the multiple issues of the case including the ADA abuse of a deaf man. What part of the law excuses judges, especially federal judges from doing their job and doing it properly.

Drain the Swamp of the lying law makers, the improper enforcement of the law and most importantly the judges who allow it on ALL levels -City-County-State and Federal…Question  wrongful laws-Question wrongful enforcement and most importantly, make sure you know your judges know the law-their jurisdiction and enforce it properly-The most important thing for a judge to do is NOT allow the prosecution of the innocent-Properly decide if a case belongs in their court and if the preponderance of the evidence will support a Criminal Charge and if not-dismiss the case.

One such case:

County Judge Lex Jones then JP Judge in Marion County, Texas did not recognize the jurisdiction of his court (and this judge does not stand alone but instead a member of a swamp of local judges enjoying being on the bench without proper training in matters of law and is now a county judge. He’s never stepped up and admitted the truth to correct his wrongful judgement or the wrongful issuance of a warrant-Lex Jones sent the case on to the wrong court as advised by the district attorney rather than reading the jurisdiction of the courts in Marion County and even admitted he wasn’t certain which court it should be sent to so took it upon himself to make certain it went on appeal to the proper court -he sent it on alright but he knew considering his hesitation in his decision of where the case should be sent for appeal… Both the county court judge (Accountant Phil Parker) and himself lacked jurisdiction and I believe he knew that even before he made the first ruling in his court-There is even the question whether a JP judge in the state of Texas can issue a criminal search and seize warrant with a criminal charge attached to the warrant especially when that warrant lacks probable cause to issue a criminal warrant. The case carried a criminal number for a class A misdemeanor and he lacked jurisdiction over any class A misdemeanor per US and state constitution. Not any member of the community questioned it including the county officials with no one properly trained in matters of law with 2 exceptions-The district attorney and the court appointed attorneys who should have stopped the witch hunt returned the animals and compensation provided for the property taken as evidence that was destroyed in the process without the judges permission, without any medical reason and without owner permission…But here’s what I have learned since that can still be done…and should be done-Drain that swamp so it never ever happens to another member of that community again!!!

Why do cases like this case happen in that community over and over again…???…Because it was a FAKE crime -no crime existed…FAKE reason to search and seize because there was no probable cause…and a FAKE judgement because the judge lacked jurisdiction as the appeal judge lacked jurisdiction.

Happened in Marion County-countless times and likely happening over and over again for years and years.

The federal court accepted the assessment of what was lost and there was no objection-It sure wouldn’t take much to reopen the case if President Trump agrees with Rand Paul and signs the bill. This bill does not take into account the countless past crimes inflicted on INNOCENT people who have lost property…However, it will be undeniable that the duress continues and should be able to reopen such a case…!!!


How many INNOCENT US citizens have lost property without there being an active criminal charge and lacking a criminal trial? No one guilty of any crime but civil forfeiture of property happened…Would be great to see the tables balanced. A civil case concerning property, including the seizure of that property such as this, should come AFTER criminal charges NOT before in the first place-So much can be said about improper laws created by lawmakers who should know the law and be specific to enforcement.

Rand Paul introduces the most sweeping reform of civil asset forfeiture law in decades

Sen. Rand Paul has long taken the lead in calling for the reform of civil asset forfeiture laws, a controversial police practice in which authorities basically steal the property of citizens without due process and little recourse. Billions have been seized from citizens by the police based on nothing more than suspicion, which many see as a direct violation of the Fifth Amendment.

It’s state-sanctioned theft. “Under civil forfeiture laws, your property is guilty until you prove it innocent,” says the Institute for Justice’s Scott Bullock.
On Thursday, Sen. Paul reintroduced FAIR (Fifth Amendment Integrity Restoration) Act, which specifically addresses victims of civil asset forfeiture who have not been convicted of a crime.
“The federal government has made it far too easy for government agencies to take and profit from the property of those who have not been convicted of a crime,” Paul’s statement read. “The FAIR Act will protect Americans’ Fifth Amendment rights from being infringed upon by ensuring that government agencies no longer profit from taking the property of U.S. citizens without due process.”
The House companion FAIR legislation is being introduced by Republican Rep. Tim Walberg of Michigan.
Some have observed that if implemented, this legislation could be the most significant reform in decades. Heritage Foundation policy analyst Jason Snead writes at The Hill, “The bill, if passed, would be the most sweeping reform of abuse-prone federal civil forfeiture law since the 1980s.”

Back then, Congress turned to civil forfeiture laws to empower law enforcement authorities to seize and forfeit the ill-gotten gains of drug kingpins, criminal organizations, and money launderers, as well as the property they used to commit their crimes. To encourage the use of this newly enhanced tool, Congress created the Assets Forfeiture Fund and allowed federal law enforcement agencies to keep the proceeds of successful forfeitures.

The result? An exponential increase in forfeiture activities. In 1985, the first year the fund existed, it brought in just $27 million. In 2012, the value of forfeited assets was $4.3 billion. Today, more than 400 federal laws authorize the seizure of cash, cars, and homes for a range of alleged offenses, and allow forfeiture proceeds to be divided with state and local agencies through Equitable Sharing programs administered by the Treasury and Justice Departments.

The issue of criminal justice reform is not new, but receiving popular support is a fairly recent trend. Both right and left, Republicans and Democrats, have been instrumental in raising awareness at both the local and national level.

“Paul and Walberg first introduced the FAIR Act in 2014,” Snead writes. “At the time, civil forfeiture was something few people had heard of, and there appeared to be little appetite for reform.”
“But in the years since, dozens of state legislatures have reined in their abuse-prone forfeiture statutes, and last year Congress advanced several forfeiture-reform bills, though none has yet made it to the president’s desk,” he added.

Some criticized Paul’s vote to confirm President Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions in February precisely because Sessions has been outspoken in opposing reform to civil asset forfeiture. Paul noted that any other appointment to that post would likely have the same positions on this issue, and also that as a senate colleague he felt he could try to change Sessions’ mind, something that would be more difficult with an Attorney General with whom Paul had no prior relationship.

Nor are Paul’s mind-changing efforts limited to Sessions.
“There was a discussion the other day in the White House about civil asset forfeiture,” Paul said in February. “I think civil asset forfeiture is a terrible idea until you’ve convicted someone, and I’d like to have that discussion with the president,” the senator added.

Zoo Wars-Action Alert~Oppose HR 6342, TEAPSPA-UPDATE 1,685

•February 15, 2017 • 1 Comment

dangerous humans

UPDATE to the post-Now 1685 messages have been sent from Cavalry Group-Many more needed to be sent-Get on the bandwagon NOW go to the link below and send your message-share this blog post so that others might understand the importance of this opposition (See the video of Big Cat Rescues 20 year plan from BCR Watch) This bill passes and you can count on EXTENSION occurring in your lifetime.

Immediate Action is needed!!! Sending your message could not more IMPORTANT or be any simpler-details below.

If you want to be able to have free choice to see animals, it is imperative that you follow the link to send your message to you congressman. This bill is more than just stopping circus animals and based on untruthful information provided by HSUS who found a sponsor for the bill-Remember the names connected to this very BAD Bill come election time-There is a large number of animal owners in this country who will be against this bill. Be sure to SHARE this message.


Big Cat Rescue’s  (BCR) educational program is not concerned with conservation but instead involved in working with PETA to stop preforming animals claiming that circus animals are doing unnatural behaviors jumping, laying, sitting and reaching on command as an unnatural behavior. Celebrating along side PETA over the recent announcement for the plan to close of Ringling Bros Circus-The most un-American form of political ‘purpose’ would be to promote or change how a US business conducts business when it complies within the standards of federal law USDA/APHIS. This BAD Bill dictates control over private citizens, denies their ability to work with current standards of the law as enforced by the USDA/APHIS government agency, denies animal owners their right to interact with their animals, denies all zoos from interaction with animals and exempts private NFP organizations and it’s members with implications concerning RICO and AETA. All interference with any animal business is a punishable crime under the Animal Enterprise Terrorist Act-HSUS, PETA, ASPCA, ALDF, and all other organizations and facilities such as BCR, Black Pine, and numerous others that stake a ‘claim of rescue’ who participate in such action subject to violation of AETA. 

Carole Baskin, ceo Big Cat Rescue has posted a 911 animal abuse site and should face a violation of AETA which is BOTH a CRIMINAL and CIVIL offense that the FBI is ignoring when it should be enforcing. That’s not to say that it won’t be investigated and then charged in the future as the problem escalates with fake complaints to various government agencies and businesses that host special events. There is a huge economic loss with such attacks on private for profit businesses. Big Cat rescue and the 20 year plan

Extremely political with little to no conservation effort-Big Cat Rescue proclaims itself superior to all places that house Big Cats when it’s one of the worst-Some refer to as ‘Hell on Earth’ and a far cry from Eden for the animals caged at that facility doomed for life. BCR claims to be accredited-Certainly NOT from GFAS they are an unverified member…No such accreditation exists or ever existed. No lawmaker should consider any law that BCR supports.

This bill, and others, are supported and pushed through the use of lobbyists, creates an issue with the Johnson Amendment. Violations of the Johnson Amendment can led to a loss of NPF 501-c-3 status.

To date from 2014 to present, BCR has spent $200,000.00 for a lobbyist in Washington, DC-Time to drain the swamp and time to remove BCR and all it’s employees from it’s 501-c-3 current status  and to be denied from ever having that status again.

Wisconsin Big Cat Rescue is promoting for change in Wisconsin laws; Jeff Kozlowski CEO is a convicted felon/Bank Robber and shouldn’t be allowed to work within a NFP 501-c-3 organization in the first place thus less have any influence with BAD Bills and seek law changes-The Bank Robber is not allowed to vote or own a gun so how is it possible for him to be in charge of exotic animals. Jeff Kozlowski is living on the property of the facility with his family including 2 young children and uses the money donated for the care of animals to support his family. Jeff Kozlowski was sited by the USDA/APHIS for putting a worker in harms way. Jeff Kozlowski has never hand proper training for the business involved concerning the business of the facility or proper care of any exotic animal-He is licensed as an exhibitor and not considered a sanctuary by anyone’s standards. Kozlowski is not exempt from this BAD Bill.

There are numerous other facilities involved in the destruction of private exotic animal ownership who themselves are private owners and will not be exempt by this BAD Bill.

from Cavalry Group:

Cavalry Group logoThe remainder of the circus industry would be wiped out with the passing of *H.R. 6342.  If passed, this legislation will destroy the conservation of endangered species in human care.  Click here to read the exact text of the bill.

This bill, if signed into law, would prohibit the exhibition of exotic animals in traveling performances.  This is a measure that would deprive countless Americans the ability to experience endangered animals up close such as elephants and tigers.  The ability to encounter such a majestic creature fosters a love of wildlife in children that lasts a lifetime.

There is language in the TEAPSPA that will outlaw the breeding of exotic animals, which in turn can and will affect endangered species negatively.  Zoos, aquariums, and private owners are responsible for the conservation and reintroduction of many endangered animals including but not limited to the Scimitar-horned Oryx, the Przewalski’s horse, and the California Condor.  Without the tireless efforts of zookeepers these animals would be extinct in the wild.  H.R. 6342 will send these animals to sanctuaries where they will be managed to extinction instead of being preserved.

Environmental stewardship is at the forefront of keeping animals in human care, whether they be endangered or not.  Education outreach done by zoos and aquariums teaches the public the importance of saving wildlife and their habitats.  TEAPSPA will hinder that by beginning to whittle away that slowly over time by removing the wonder people experience by seeing animals up close and in person.

TAKE ACTION to send letters to your U.S. Representative and Senators to OPPOSE TEAPSPA now!

*Taking a look at H. R. 6342 with some Blogger rebuttal notes-Mr. Grijalva and Mr. Costello could not be any more gullible (believing lies from vegan based homegrown Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorists) and forget the commitment to US citizens of the US Constitution and it’s Amendments. Congress has a commitment to US citizens that are a priority that takes precedence. This is not just a BAD Bill but has a very dangerous agenda that has a far reaching economic impact. *References provided


(for himself and Mr. Costello of Pennsylvania) introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on Agriculture

A BILL- To amend the Animal Welfare Act to restrict the use of exotic and wild animals in traveling performances.

1. Short title This Act may be cited as the Traveling Exotic Animal and Public Safety Protection Act.
2. Findings The Congress finds that—
(1) conditions inherent to traveling performances, including constant travel, temporary and collapsible facilities, and the prolonged confinement and physical coercion of animals, subject exotic and wild animals to compromised welfare and chronic stress, and present public and worker health and safety risks not adequately addressed by current regulation;
[Bloggers note: The claims of this bill has already been proven as false by veterinarians, scientists, owners and the general health of the animals themselves-Exotic Animals live longer, and are generally healthier than exotic animals in a different scenario; well socialized with continued attention paid to diet and exercise-the animals are NOT in constant confinement but instead are provided with temporary and collapsible facilities to provide the best of conditions as required by law (USDA/APHIS) when in travel and required to maintain proper facilities when not traveling; also required by AWA; both regulated and inspected regularly by USDA/APHIS.
Well adjusted animals do NOT entertain any stress and no  member of the public or worker is at risk of a public safety issue which is already addressed and monitored by the federal government agency USDA/APHIS as well as OSHA for the concern of workers and public safety. *See USDA/APHIS regulation guide for all USDA/APHIS permit holders and while all must adhere to the regulations, this BAD Bill is an over step of government into small and large businesses-all must adhere to the same laws and are to be held to the same standards which sadly, the agency has demonstrated it has no concern of all NFP facilities. For a facility to be NFP means it is a charity and merely a tax rating having nothing to do with the standards of the facility or the care provided to the animals held at a facility. ALL facilities must be held to the same letter of the law if the laws and regulations are to be respected and enforced.
The traveling exhibitor has to maintain two separate standards as dictated by the USDA/APHIS-Both proper facilities while traveling and exhibiting and permanent facilities for the animals when not traveling  and/or exhibiting.]

(2) Current regulatory oversight of traveling performances is complex and costly, and these costs are not typically recouped via licensing fees, but are left to the American taxpayer;
[Bloggers note: The US Constitution and the Amendments to the Constitution are created for the protection of US citizens-The Animal Welfare Act like no other, is actually illegal and unconstitutional which has never been addressed-This BAD Bill is also unconstitutional by denying the rights of private owners and giving the rights of ownership to only members of two PRIVATE organizations that are not affiliated with any government agency. 
The AWA was created with the assumption the animal owners are abusers of animals and businesses using animals would then be required to purchase a license through the USDA to work within the strict APHIS regulations of the act as well as to be subjected to unannounced inspections.
Any and ALL complaints would also require unannounced inspections. Vegan based homegrown Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorists have used the Animal Welfare Act and these monitoring agencies to file a barrage of complaints which would then require extra inspections beyond the norm.
Cost of the extra inspections would then make monitoring them to become a taxpayer burden through the mis-use of a very liberal complaint system-even when there is no reason to file such complaints ever existed-False reporting of complaints goes by unpunished. The very same Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorist Organizations which includes Big Cat Rescue, and other facilities also encourages complaints to agencies and to the businesses where a performance is to take place (in violation with the Animal Enterprise Terrorist Act.) Large rescues affiliated with vegan based Animal Rights Extremist Terrorist Organizations such as HSUS, PETA. ASPCA ,ALDF and others all promote similarly; all against preforming animals and against the keeping of exotic animals. Against any relationship between humans and animals. Ultimately “One generation and out.”-Wayne Pacelle, ceo HSUS] 
Animal Greed
HSUS is at the heart of the vegan based homegrown Animal Rights Extremist/Terrorist Organizations-All these organizations are affiliated and offer support to each other with very little money going to animal care but instead political in nature. Each contributing to each other to further the Animal Rights agenda-Careful who you donate to
Howie at the convention

Note: BCR is no more than a substandard roadside zoo and license by FL and the USDA as a private exhibitor; open to the public; available for tours and private events 24/7.
big-cat-rescue-lobbying-chartBig Cat Rescue lobbying efforts listed as public information 2014-2016. This is a breach of the Johnson Amendment along with numerous violations by BCR from a highly political agenda against private exotic animal ownership.
(3) The frequent mobility of traveling performances complicates oversight such that agencies and authorities cannot properly monitor, evaluate, or follow through regarding the condition of animals or facilities, or their history of potential injuries, incidents, illnesses, violations, or other issues, and so cannot properly protect animals, workers, or the public;
[Bloggers Note: As a retired professional travel exhibitor of exotic animals for more than 2 decades, now retired, can attest to excessive monitoring and inspections. Vet care and inspections are both required at home facilities and times when traveling. I never had any problem finding vets in any area where vet care became necessary or for a general health inspection required for travel through or into some states-NEVER.
Animals in travel are basically in an isolated/quarantined status from other animals, rarely get sick and demonstrates that these animals are NOT stressed or subjected to excessive confinement. 
The performance demonstrates the muscle condition and agility of these animals which would not be possible if improperly confined for long periods of time.]
Freedom the guide allows elephants2__________________
(4) Traveling exotic and wild animal performances use collapsible, temporary, mobile facilities, which risk escape and serious harm to animals, workers, and the public;
[Bloggers note: Rarely has there been any recorded escapes in recent history. No one has ever died in such instance with the exception of a tiger escape at an AZA Zoo-If anything, a tighter control and monitoring needs to be done at AZA Zoos and all sanctuaries whose owners may not be properly trained for the care and welfare of such animals especially if those facilities are not open to the public and therefore would not require federal licensing or  inspections by any federal agency; USDA/APHIS and OSHA. GFAS facilities are a major problem of escapes and/or workers hurt and/or killed-GFAS facilities are stationary, have a greater list of incident list for worker deaths which poses a possible greater threat to public and worker safety-NOT traveling exhibitors.] Important reference:
(5) Traveling exotic and wild animal performances present safety risks by permitting or not preventing public contact and by displaying animals in inappropriate, uncontrolled areas in dangerous proximity to humans and other animals;
[Bloggers note: Previously addressed –For the most part there have been few escapes and there were no public safety issues when it has occurred. All traveling exhibitors have a required safety plan in place. Owners with performing animals are required to maintain safe traveling conditions as well as a facility to provide for the animals when not traveling which dispels the myth that the animals are not well provided for.
Traveling exhibitors are always prepared and capable of evacuation from any emergency at any time while sanctuaries and some zoos are totally unprepared with large numbers of animals and instead remain in place endangering the lives of animals as well as workers and people in the general vicinity of the facility. Time and time again we saw the threat from fires in CA. Paws and Forever Wild remained in place. Forever Wild was only capable of removing some of the smaller animals that could be transported in plastic kennels. The big cats and others particularly sensitive to smoke had to remain in place.]
(6) Exotic and wild animals have intrinsic value; their wild instincts and needs are unpredictable and are not naturally suited to traveling performances, and they suffer as a result of being unable to fulfill instinctive natural behaviors;
[Bloggers note: It is impossible to train any animal to do the impossible-All behaviors a demonstration of behaviors that they would do in the wild…jump, sit-up, lay down, roll over, etc.-The ‘trick’ is to get them to do so on command.
The animals in a sanctuary situation loose their intrinsic value with more wild and unpredictable behaviors as no one is providing contact with the animals or providing any challenge. If any animals suffer in captivity, it would be at a GFAS sanctuary.
Big Cat Rescue, an unverified GFAS facility, is an example with old rusty cages and with no plan for using money accumulated to update the cages. Instead money collected for animal care is being used for political purposes rather than to meet the needs of the animals.
The IRS has been lax in investigating and monitoring 501-c-3 Not for Profit organizations. BCR food source and vet care is low cost if not entirely free just as it is for other NFP zoos and sanctuaries. Under the Johnson Amendment, no charity, 501-c-3 Not for Profit business is to be politically tied using funds for political purposes-
BCR stands alone paying a lobbyist in 2016 a documented whopping $80,000.00 and the two previous years was a whopping $60,000.00 for each previous year Mounting a lobbying situation of $200,00.00.
BCR also donated to HSUS a total of $10,000.00 per year for numerous years and to other politically orientated people or groups. To take animal ownership from viable for Profit businesses that provide over and beyond the care provided by a sanctuary would mean extinction in captivity as these sanctuaries are committed to S/N the animals to stop all breeding.
Captivity is necessary as the number of these animals existing in the wild dwindles from the imprint of mans presence in the wild. These Not for Profit 501-c-3 must be held to the letter of the law. GFAS, HSUS, PETA, ASPCA and others including facilities where animals are held (Big Cat Rescue is a 501-c-3, Not for Profit facility, is just one example of the use of funds for political purposes.) are actively involved in creating US laws and regulations with the use of funds collected for animal care. All promote S/N to allow the animals to go extinct.]
TripAdvisor Review3
This cat continued to suffer at BCR. No attention was paid to the ruffled fur which is an indication that a cat is terribly sick-Finally receiving necessary care only after a customer posted on Yelp of his condition. Since that time the cat died.
circus-cat-actJumping is a natural behavior. Like any athlete, the animal must be in good physical condition to preform a task. Note the trainer must trust the tiger to do the task without presenting harm to himself or the other animals in the cage.
PETA celebrates as Ringling Brothers Circus announced that they will be closing their business due to poor ticket sales, over regulation and laws changing concerning animal usage which interferes with their ability to conduct business. Economic impact was ignored by lawmakers. All laws concerning animals illegal and unconstitutional including this BAD Bill.] 
(7) Exotic and wild animals used in traveling performances suffer severe and extended confinement, and, deprived of natural movements and behaviors, are prone to chronic stress, behavioral, health, and psychological problems;
[Bloggers note: This is just a repeat and previously addressed. Fact, show animals are provided for better than in any other situation. The proof being that the life-span of traveling animals far exceeds those living in a sanctuary. Privately owned animals also have a far superior life expectancy with human contact and established relationship between owner and animal. 
Big Cat Rescue being the example of a ‘typical sanctuary’ has the highest death rate and sick animals than other facilities with animals arriving with healthy vet checks and allowed for travel to the facility. 
The high death rate of unknown causes  at BCR indicates a lack of proper vet care, proper diet and sever stress. The deaths of those, animals is well published and money continues to be collected off the back of an animal that has died there. More than 180 exotic cats have died at Big Cat Rescue and their body parts are on display in their party room.]
BCR-Skins and skulls3

Animal parts on display at Big Cat Rescue in the ‘party room’-an animal that has been used for promotion for funds at this facility-numerous deaths occur each year of unknown cause. It is believed that once an animal has lost it’s usefulness of public interest for the collection of donations, will soon to be added to the display.
Big Cat Rescue direction sign
Signage directing traffic to Big Cat Rescue which in reality is a FL Roadside Zoo that offers very little to no conservation efforts with the tours offered 24/7 but instead promotes the taking of animals from longstanding, legal and rightful owners in support of this BAD Bill and others as ALL private ownership is invaded with new illegal and unconstitutional laws and regulations to take animals (property).
(8) Exotic and wild animals are forced to perform unnatural tricks requiring extreme physical coercion, including, but not limited to the use of food and water restrictions, electric shock devices, bullhooks, metal bars, whips, shovels, and pitchforks, among other abuses;
[Bloggers note: BCR uses prods and possibly shock equipment for moving animals. If BCR is considered the ‘norm’ for a sanctuary, then it can be assumed that all sanctuaries and facilities taking animals with a claim of animal rescue seeking donations do the same. Never have I witnessed any abuse of the named items on preforming animals. Animals on tour must be in prime condition as show animals and the use of such devises would be forbidden by the animal owner. Animals happily go to the performance area and demonstrate what comes natural for them.]
(9) It is not necessary to use exotic or wild animals in traveling performances to experience the circus or similar events;
[Bloggers note: Exotic animals have always been used as part of the circus experience for both entertainment and educational value; it is a valued part of circus tradition. The use of these animals is of great value in communities where they might never have an opportunity to see and learn about the animals.]
(10) Using exotic or wild animals as commodities traded for traveling performances adds nothing to the understanding and conservation of such animals and the natural environment, and actually undermines conservation efforts necessary to protect threatened and endangered species;
[Bloggers note: Conservation for the protection of the animals in the wild is stressed by all traveling exhibitors. Certainly a sanctuary situation, especially if not open to the public which is required to become a verified GFAS facility where they are never inspected by any federal agency, owners untrained present a poor example of a proper facility and do not follow the regulations of the Animal Welfare Act because it is not required without a permit from the USDA/APHIS.
The conditions at BCR are questionable as it is built on a reclaimed landfill, with the animals provided water from the old retention pond. No extensive EPA research has been done to satisfy EPA regulations demonstrating that grounds of this facility as a possible public safety issue.]
(11) It is not possible to provide or ensure public and worker safety or appropriate physical and mental welfare for exotic and wild animals under the traveling performance business model, which inherently and significantly restricts animals’ natural movements and behaviors, and where abuse is prevalent and oversight problematic;
[Bloggers note: This was also previously addressed in other parts of this BAD Bill. And as previously stated the animals are only capable of natural behaviors. No abuse or oversight is prevalent or would be continually noted by the USDA/APHIS inspectors and already have been addressed by the USDA Inspector General. There are no excessive deaths of animals that are conditioned to traveling but instead there are numerous and excessive deaths at the example GFAS unverified sanctuary. Big Cat Rescue and others is being used by this Blogger as an example of where animals would possibly be placed if this BAD Bill is passed with a current number of animal deaths greater than any other US facility.]
(12) The use of exotic or wild animals in traveling performances is or substantially affects interstate or foreign commerce, or the free flow thereof; it is essential to regulate such activities to assure animals’ humane care and treatment; and
[Bloggers note: Each state has requirements for animals entering their state whether just traveling through or performing. Ironically, facilities claiming rescue are not held to the letter of the law when transporting animals is necessary. Traveling exhibitors are required to provide windows for light and vents for fresh air. NFP facilities claiming rescue have been caught and witnessed by USDA/APHIS inspectors although not noted on any inspection form as would be required. 
The use of improper equipment to transfer animals to a NFP facility should not be allowed and always noted on transfer forms yet those USDA/APHIS inspectors are not following proper enforcement procedures where all laws and regulations from facility to facility are to be treated equally. No traveling exhibitor would ever enter a state without doing proper research on the requirements of that state.]
(13) Restricting the use of exotic and wild animals in traveling performances is the most cost-effective and efficient way to safeguard animals, workers, and the public.
[Bloggers note: Stopping traveling exhibitors has a far reaching economic impact and destructive to conservation efforts of the traveling exhibitor. Rather than stopping a private exotic animal owner; it would instead be wise to promote a traveling exotic exhibitor]
[No further Blogger notes necessary as the bill is already destroyed with actual facts contained in my blogger notes-Reference links included below.
Please note that this BAD Bill also includes stationary facilities but excludes GFAS and AZA zoos-This is a RICO issue as no private business Not for Profit or otherwise, is to hold a monopoly over US citizens-
AETA is also violated with the creation of this BAD Bill which should be rejected based on those two federal acts both Criminal and Civil offense-Anyone submitting any BAD Bills, promoting BAD Bills or any state with such acknowledgement included in their laws can be both Criminal and Civilly sued by anyone effected with the creation of the BAD Bill and Laws-This is a very serious offense that should be noted by lawmakers and the IRS division that issues and enforces 501-c-3 Not for Profit organizations. ]
3. Use of exotic or wild animals in traveling performances

Section 13 of the Animal Welfare Act (7 U.S.C. 2143) is amended by adding at the end the following:

(I)(1) No person shall cause a performance of, or allow for the participation of, an exotic animal or wild animal in a traveling animal act.
(2) Paragraph (1) shall not apply to the use of an exotic animal or wild animal—

(A) In an exhibition at a nonmobile, permanent institution, facility, zoo, or aquarium accredited by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums or the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries, or a wildlife sanctuary;
(B) As part of an environmental education program by a facility accredited by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums, if the animal used for such purposes is not so used for more than 6 months in any year and is not kept in a mobile or traveling housing facility for more than 12 hours in any day;

Protecting Businesses That Use Animals At Last

•February 8, 2017 • 2 Comments

A long one that I hope is worth the read:

Of course this is CNN-So quick to take the low road as if the USDA database indicated animal abuse-which it does NOT.

The USDA data base referred to is nothing more than inspection reports filed by USDA inspectors of their opinion following an unannounced inspection that were wrongfully placed on line. Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorists (FARTS) would then use those reports to claim animal abuse even when clearly none existed.

Rather than inspection reports to be used strictly by the agency as a reference for regulation requirements to be met or cites corrections that a facility needs to meet, it became a tool used improperly to focus claims against a facility owner. Government data in the wrong hands enabling and enhancing the Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorist/Activist gave them power to invade and destroy American Animal Culture. -By placing that information on line, it clearly allowed for attacks on private animal businesses quickly and easily by FARTS.

In the past, anyone wanting to view an inspection report was required to use the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to request information and certain information would be redacted for the protection of someone who held a permit. By inspection reports being offered as a database on the Internet for open viewing, it allowed anyone to search for anything and target a facility faster than they might be able otherwise. Rather than required to apply the FOIA request and leaving behind tracking information on who made the request so that there would be a way to track who had searched for information and also informed the owner of a USDA regulated facility, that someone had made a request.

Bear in mind, the data base included all facilities from animal laboratories to dog breeders, exhibitors both zoos and traveling exhibitors are well as pet shops. The database was all inclusive of ALL facilities thereby allowing for massive attacks from FARTS mis-using the information supplied including for frivolous lawsuits in courts against an owner with judges who are sympathetic and with a knee jerk emotional reaction for their judgement rather than realizing that the Animal Welfare Act is unconstitutional and against American Animal Culture. The Animal Welfare Act has been in effect for sometime and yet to be challenged in any constitutional court of law.

Steps were also taken by the USDA for routes of traveling exhibitors to be supplied earlier than a few days notice which once supplied to the USDA becomes known to FARTS for protests and demonstrations. Protests to any animal business where on the Internet, in the media or in the street, does serious harm to any business no matter how right or wrong the protest is based on. Of course protesting is a fundamental first amendment right however, it is not anyone’s right to infringe on the rights of others to not be able to conduct business as usual-Frankly I consider protests on any animal business a violation of AETA-if we are to continue with things the way they are, it should be noted within the USDA regulations that protests are not to be conducted within a minimum of 5 miles of any animal business location-No one would be stopping the fanatics right to protest but instead, where they would be allowed to protest, that animal business would be able to conducted as business as ‘usual’ as it is intended. The harassment needs to stop. The first step of course is to turn off the government data base from being available 24/7 to whoever wishes access.

Frankly if any actual animal abuse existed, the USDA inspector had encountered at the time of inspection, is a sever case of actual animal abuse, it would have been handled accordingly and quickly.

USDA removes online database that included animal abuse; activists cry foul

(CNN)The United States Department of Agriculture shut down an online database Friday that included information about animals mistreated, injured and killed.

The USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) cited privacy concerns in removing the documents, but one animal welfare activist said he believes the department is caving to pressure from groups that didn’t like the information being so easily accessible.
For more than a decade the USDA’s website posted official warnings, settlements made before trial, administrative complaints, inspection reports and research facility annual reports.
“APHIS, during the past year, has conducted a comprehensive review of the information it posts on its website for the general public to view,” the announcement reads. “As a result of the comprehensive review, APHIS has implemented actions to remove certain personal information from documents it posts on APHIS’ website involving the Horse Protection Act and the Animal Welfare Act.”
Michael Budkie, the executive director of Stop Animal Exploitation NOW!, said the information removed already had redacted sections.
“The documents that they have removed contain virtually no personal information. This is NOT about privacy,” Budkie said. “Our entire society is going online now. Whether it’s shopping, communicating or banking. What is our government doing? They are going off-line.”
Budkie, who regularly reviewed and downloaded documents from the database, provided CNN five examples he said he saved. Signatures, employee names and other information were blacked out.
“There has been tremendous pushback from the industries that exploit animals because the information in that database was used to publicize and expose the abuse of animals,” Budkie said. “Essentially this is going to help labs and animal dealers and animal breeders who break the law to remain undetected and out of the Michael Budkiepublic eye, because it will slow down the process of obtaining information.”
Documents that had been part of the online database now must be requested by filing a Freedom of Information Act request, a process that usually takes months.
“Records will be released when authorized and in a manner consistent with the FOIA and Privacy Act,” the USDA said in a statement emailed to CNN. “We remain equally committed to being transparent and responsive to our stakeholders’ informational needs, and maintaining the privacy rights of individuals with whom we come in contact.”
Budkie provided to CNN a May 2016 inspection report of a university where animals were kept for research. The report detailed bighorn sheep that got 50 times too much of a drug three days in a row, two grizzly bears that had to be euthanized after they were not monitored properly, an injured rabbit, a rusty feed trough and a damaged dog kennel.
An annual report from another university showed it worked with more than 3,300 animals, 249 of which were used in experiments, research, surgery or tests that caused pain or distress to the animals that wasn’t treated with pain relieving or tranquilizing drugs.
PETA called the “abrupt” removal of the information shameful.
“Public taxes fund these agencies and the public should not be kept the dark because the feds would rather shield abusers than hold them accountable,” PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo said in a statement.
A USDA spokeswoman did not respond to CNN’s request for more information beyond their initial written statement.
The implementation of the Animal Welfare Act and the lax concern for the welfare of private owners along with an animal owners right to privacy, has led to civil liberty abuse by the agency and this is the first time that this agency is recognizing and admitting ton that as a fact. After all the complaints from animal business owners over the years, the agency says OPPS!?!
Well, OPPS is just not good enough and frankly this should be followed up with a class action suit against the agency and the government for the unconstitutional implementation of the Animal Welfare Act in a court of constitutional law.
Any and all laws whether federal or state concerned with animals can only be written as a public safety issue and NOT for the concern for the welfare of animals. I say this NOT because I support cruelty to any animal but instead because we base all laws within the United States on the US Constitution. For a state to receive funds from the federal government for lawful enforcement, it must adhere to the US Constitution.
Therefore any regulation must met standards that protect the public from harm of incident which might include animal vaccinations, caging suitable to prevent contact and fencing that maintains a safe distance to keep people from approaching an animal. If the health of an animal could be a public safety issue then it could include food, water and shelter, nothing more.
FARTS would no longer be able to use the agency in a way that infringes on the rights of animal owners and the general public is NOT entitled to any data accumulated thru inspections -The USDA is a total with a waste of taxpayer money in this area. Unless its an issue that demonstrates an actual public safety issue then the USDA has no right to be used to harass private citizens from the constant use of information of inspection reports. Whether cited or indicating complete compliance. Note: I can recall a time when inspectors were actually required to find something wrong based on the theory that no one is perfect and no facility can be perfect.
I have been asked if I miss my business-The business-No, not this end of it-HA!
I miss my animals more than I could ever say but I do not miss the barrage of inspections, especially on the road when making changes and adjustments to satisfy an inspectors opinion was the most difficult even with a simplest of necessary changes.
We always cooperated to make corrections at the time of the visit so by the time an inspector returned with his or her report, that correction would be made. There were a few reasons for doing this:
1) Get it done and move on
2) All correction were to be completed within a timeframe decided on by inspector and would send out another inspector to make sure that the correction was made…at which time you would be required to go thru the entire process of another inspection…I always considered follow inspections a waste of my time and taxpayer money.
3) To demonstrate that writing up inspections was meaningless with corrections so easy to make until you reach a correction that is a task beyond quick inspection, done to cause major disruption in your business such as requiring a transport cage to be exactly one inch bigger and putting as unnecessary burden on your business. At that point you can and likely will request for more time to make that correction. Making a 1 inch change to 6 transport cages meant a major reconstruction and an expense that put a financial burden on the business; NOTE: There is no way any animal would benefit from making a transport cage an inch bigger and was considered harassment by us but did accomplish the impossible to remain in business but caused an unnecessary use of funds that could have been used for something that the animals would actually benefit from. What met the regulation one day did not met the regulations the next day after more than 10 years and based on an inspectors opinion. Of course we challenged that decision but to no avail as is usually the case with the decision of an inspector-even an inspector who was not familiar with the type and nature of your business.
For more than 2 decades I held a permit from the USDA and I can still follow the guidelines contained within the regulations if I were in then same business again today without referencing the blue book of regulations…nothing has changed.
When inspectors go beyond the actual guidelines and start writing up the most ridiculous corrections needed; corrections not even listed in the regulations, you realize that inspectors all have a different opinion of what they re to do to conduct a proper inspection. Frankly, it got to the point where it didn’t matter, an inspector wanted a correction whether part of the regulations or not; we jumped even before the reports were placed on the Internet.
Frankly we were never informed that those reports would be placed on the Internet and if we had any objection to it. It is possible that notice was sent that was not received and was surprised to see it there. It should also be noted that when the permit was dropped by a mutual agreement as I was no longer exhibiting but instead maintaining my group of animals; the reports disappeared. When I requested a FOIA of inspection reports, inter office memos and any complaints that had been filed, (etc ) I was told my records had been destroyed…To this day, I don’t believe that and instead believe that the USDA is likely required to keep all records, even when someone no longer has a permit. After all, that data was collected and recorded at taxpayer expense. I have seen cases against permit holders that go back 10 years so there is no way anyone is to believe that suddenly the USDA is destroying records for no apparent reason other than to keep me from taking any further action against the agency.

While I was working on this post, this came in as a comment to another post:

What do you think of this? My greatest concern is that public records were removed without public notice. Taken together with a number of other questionable initiatives not presented openly for public comment, especially the current plan to eliminate the Environmental Protection Agency, I find this troubling. I go back & forth between issues of privacy and issues of government transparency, but I’m not sure what to make of this.

My response:

My next post addresses the issue. If you have any question following that post please feel free to contact me with those questions.
I stand strong on one single point that no one is addressing -The implementation of the Animal Welfare Act goes beyond the issue of public safety. The US Constitution addresses laws and regulations and does not provide for the welfare of animals. To assume that a business that uses animals is committing cruelty is not a public safety issue in the first place. To dictate cage sizes or how an animal is provided for beyond a public safety would be concern for food, water and shelter but again I must state whether an animal has food, water or shelter is NOT a public safety issue. Vaccination for rabies would be a public safety issue. Realize that those guideline of the Animal Welfare Act does not concern the welfare of animals used for food-Humane consumption or animal; there is no inspection of any food sources until the issue of slaughter beginning that an animal must be able to walk on it’s own before slaughter. Frankly that would not actually indicate the health of any animal on it’s own.

Instead of concern for a true public safety issue, it is not monitored with regular inspections or guidelines or permits required. If anything should be of concern for a public safety issue for animals, either for exhibition or sale, they must be able to provide a clean health certificate at the time of the sale which oddly enough is not a requirement and instead left up to the buyer or the agreement between seller and buyer but not by USDA/APHIS law and becomes a civil issue.
Animals used for exhibition whether in a zoo or circus should have a clean health certificate yearly and permission showing that any problem an animal may have is not a public safety issue risk-That’s it -Anything else would be unconstitutional and considered illegal.

I also am of the school that animal cruelty laws do nothing for any animal and have nothing to do with any public safety issue.
Now I’m certain you may not like my opinion but I do not assume that any monitoring system dictating cage sizes or about the care an animal receives should be of concern when we have far less of a monitoring system for people and especially children which is of concern.

At a time with so much government waste of taxpayer money, there comes a time when you have to draw a line. The Animal Welfare Act with all it’s good intentions has become used in an effort for vegan based homegrown Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorists activities to the point where it has been stated by these activists that mere ownership is animal cruelty and filled the courts with people who did not and never would commit intentional animal cruelty and does not belong in the courtroom where real intentional crimes are held and delaying those cases. These very same people are making the lives of animals equivalent to that of children which they are not.

The inference that an animal does not have a voice is far from true. An animals voice is judged by it’s health and any animal owner that does not properly provide suffers from the consequence of allowing for the loss of an animals health and possibly it’s life. A loss of an animals life becomes a matter of a loss of valuable property.

Yes, there is an emotional commitment between animal and owner but in do way is there justification for laws concerning the care of that property to such a degree that valuable property is seized and given away.

Back to my opinion of the use of government data-Even as a taxpayer, you have no right to any government data beyond statistical data. You have no right to my address and phone-no right to know an inspectors OPINION of how I am caring for my animal and an inspector has no right to go beyond shoving regulations down my throat and not the same for someone else, as has been demonstrated by this agency. This applies to state agencies that have similar regulations or regulations that go beyond the regulations as prescribed by a federal agency.

In short, understand that I could go on and on over my opinion of these laws, their intent and how those laws and regulations are being used and abused for cases against people. There is much to be said about being human and in no way does any inspection demonstrate a proper enforcement of the law in consideration for a persons right to privacy and more importantly the right of ownership, and a persons ability to provide. The creation of these laws takes away a persons right according to state and US Constitution. -B

Insert of important information from this article to be noted not discussed above and requires no discussion other than to say with this decision comes the question why it was ever done in then first place as over the years many exhibitors were concerned with privacy issues and the mis-use of the information-Not necessarily because the needed to make corrections and certainly not because they got caught as implied-I guess taking the high road and taking people not only for their word but also their passion for their business and compassion for the animals in their care.

“The review was in place prior to the change of administration,” Tanya Espinosa, a public affairs specialist for the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), told me via email.

Espinosa referenced an official statement from USDA that suggested the removal was in response to a court decision having to do with privacy, though she would not provide further details.

“Courts are continuously issuing decisions that provide agencies with guidance on interpreting and applying laws applicable to the release of information to the public by the Federal government,” the statement reads. “APHIS, with the support from the Office of the General Counsel, continuously monitors these sources of information and refinements to APHIS’ practices are made accordingly.”

The records removed included inspection reports, regulatory correspondence, research facility annual reports, and enforcement records related to animal welfare laws. Without a public database, it makes it much more difficult for special interest groups and the general public to keep tabs on how well these laws are being enforced. It also throws a wrench in some state laws, which require pet stores to ensure their breeders have no animal welfare violations.

Delcianna Winders, the academic fellow at Harvard University’s Animal Law & Policy Program, told me over the phone that the documents in the database were already redacted to remove private information such as signature and contact information. Winder calls the government’s explanation for why they were removed from the USDA’s website “Orwellian” and has filed a FOIA request for all the communication around this decision to try to find out precisely what prompted the removal.

“This is a really loud signal that the assault on transparency isn’t just about hot topics like climate change,” said Winders, “but even something we all agree on, that’s pretty innocuous, like animal welfare.”


The statements in both articles (follow the links) demonstrate the mis-use of this government data base information collected for government usage-Not to provide the general public with any information…That’s what Yelp is for, lol, not a government agency-and certainly NOT to be mis-used  by vegan based homegrown Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorists/Activists/Extremists…



Like it or Not~You’re Next and/or Effects YOU Whether YOU Own an Animal or Not-Pennsylvania Senate Bill 248~Dangerous

•February 1, 2017 • Leave a Comment

With an understanding -A true understanding of what the Animal Rights Agenda is that there is the realization that it’s not just dogs and cats, hunting, the use of fur or animals used for entertainment…It encompasses ALL animal usage and the belief that there should be no human relationships with animals; a belief that one should stay within their own ‘species’ as first described by Ingrid Newkirk, ceo PETA. PETA is largely supported by liberals promoting a vegan based diet.


HSUS is much the same as PETA with ties and millions in reserve using empathy for animals which is a natural human response for animals in need, to collect millions for essential the same agenda as PETA but taking it a step further with the creation of other organizations who like themselves collect donations based on natural human empathy for animals in need and these organizations all working together in unison to end all animal usage. All supporting any bill that takes away animal usage-Current Bad Bill in Pennsylvania is a prime example of a possible illegal unconstitutional law being introduced with concern for the keeping of animals having nothing to do with any public safety issue-see below.

Animal GreedFrankly, it would not be difficult to consider this a conspiracy however, I do not see the FBI working to seek RICO charges for each and every organization as they work in unison to destroy American Animal Culture. Promoting the creation of the Animal Welfare Act and the Endangered Species Act these anti-American Animal Rights Culture groups developed a means to control animal usage by using these two illegal and unconstitutional Acts to create laws on all levels of government that interfere with animal usage. The constitution was created to guide lawmakers that has been ignored for much too long. Animal usage is not a controversial issue, but those who wish to control animal usage as a means of creating an income for themselves have relied on knee-jerk emotional agenda to keep pushing for their belief that animals and man remain separate yet forgotten that those same Acts are also a means to assure the protection of animals and a means that humans will always have a relationship with animals for protection.

The question arises as to why it has been used for a negative response rather than positive with a display of intent as written in the standards within those Acts and the regulations. This is easily answered as it was never intended for a positive effect considering who, how and why it was created and how it can be used for enforcement. The ESA is used to prevent land development and the AWA used to close businesses usage of animals. All these Fanatical Animal Rights Organizations have the one cause to prevent all human relationships with animals, working in unison have slowly chipped away to diminish that usage with the creation of more laws and regulations so there are fewer pet shops selling animals, fewer zoos, fewer circuses utilizing animals as part of the show, breeder regulations etc.

Imagine a world without animals because it seems that is quickly approaching as more animal owners have been regulated to shut down or put out of business. Wayne Pacelle, ceo HSUS sure has

One generation and out

It’s not going to stop unless animal owners and lovers join together in support of all animal usage-No only do Fanatical Animal Rights Organizations not have a problem with the extinction of companion and domestic animals but all animals; from the enjoyment of owning a pet to the enjoyment of viewing them in a zoo setting, the protein of animals in our diets to the warmth that fur provides. Beware when you see Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorists celebrating the end of any animal usage-rejoicing over the theft of animals from their owners -they never shed a tear for the animals but instead consider it a win and achieve that win by any means whether legal or not but remember any laws created to protect animals is illegal and unconstitutional.


Today Ringling, tomorrow your horse, dog, cat and Big Mac


The announcement of Ringling Bros circus closing this year, makes it an apt juncture to re-read the words of tiger tamer Thomas Chipperfield in the Times, above. (Click on the image and it should come up big enough to read)

The end of Ringling has been claimed as a victory by animal rights campaigners. It was their lobbying that led to the legislation in key American cities like Los Angeles that made travelling with an animal show as big as Ringling untenable – and it was when they took the elephants out of the show that people stopped buying tickets.

But where will the victory lead?

As Chipperfield points out, circuses have only ever been the thin end of the wedge. The animal rights movement is an ideology that wants to outlaw zoos, horse riding, pet ownership, meat eating, leather and even wool production. Peta is open about it, although no one seems to listen, or maybe care.

Perhaps one day, when it’s their dogs and cats and Big Macs at stake, the world will remember that a lion tamer tried to warn them that it was about much more than circuses all along.

And that the elephants that disappeared from Ringling last year were really canaries in a coal mine.


Chipperfield is not alone-nor is it only circus animal trainers giving this warning, but other animal owners, lovers and supporter of animal usage are beginning to understand and speak out against vegan based homegrown Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorists and seek an end to their voice.

The economic issues are far reaching in a world without animals and without giving much consideration for the long term effects lawmakers (usually liberal democrats) become involved either because of the influence of the activists or and better said, their influence thru lobbying for laws to be changed or created without consideration for those economic changes or the fact that any laws concerning property must be written for a concern for people not the welfare of property or to dictate the care of property…Example: There is a bill under consideration in Pennsylvania with focus on the care of the animal(s) not because there is any concern for public safety issues -real or fake or any economic consideration. No need to make it lawful-let the animal owners challenge it right?!?-WRONG!!! Everyone should be concerned!!!

Pennsylvania senator sponsors bill banning traveling exotic animal acts — including circuses — from the state


A Pennsylvania state senator introduced a bill this month banning traveling animal exhibitions — including circuses and carnivals — from the state.

The bill comes just days after the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus announced plans to shut down “The Greatest Show on Earth” in May. The circus giant, which has traveled the country with live animal and acrobatic acts for nearly 150 years, had already announced in 2016 that it was removing elephants from its show.

The new bill was proposed Jan. 27 by Senator Daylin Leach, a Democrat from the 17th District covering portions of Delaware and Montgomery counties. It was subsequently referred to the Senate judiciary committee, according to his spokesman, Steve Hoenstine.

A previous version of the bill, introduced by Leach in 2015, didn’t make it out of committee, Hoenstine said.

 If enacted, the law would prohibit the use of exotic animals in “an animal act, ride, performance or exhibition as part of a traveling show or exhibition if, during the 15-day period preceding the employment or use, the animal was living or traveling in a mobile housing facility,” according to the draft bill.

Exclusions would apply to permanent facilities, such as zoos and aquariums, as well as outreach programs for education or conservation purposes “if the animal is not kept in a mobile housing facility for more than 12 hours per day.” Research facilities, including universities, would also be excluded, as would uses connected to film, television and advertising.

Violations would be considered third-degree misdemeanors. For purposes of the law, “exotic animals” refer to animals that are not native to the United States.


When they come for your neighbors pets, when they come for the circus animals, when they come for zoo animals, when they come for the chickens and cows, when a pig has more rights than you and their agenda has banned all the animals, it will be too late. So while the vegan based homegrown Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorist Organizations are proclaiming a victory-You will be the one at a loss and so will our economy with a far reaching economic impact that goes well beyond the obvious.

from Protect the Harvest~Book Review

•January 27, 2017 • 1 Comment


The following was posted on Protect the Harvest FB page that I highly recommend following Protect the Harvest either on fb and/or twitter – The fiollowing is a c/p of their words and I am highlighting in part important parts to be noted. I am NOT promoting the book but looks like we need to obtain a few copies, read it and share-Keep your friends close and your enemies closer!


“The Humane Inane (sic) Economy – A Manifesto by Wayne Pacelle, CEO and President of the Humane Society of the United States.
The HSUS’s CEO and President, Wayne Pacelle, has recently released a new book. While we are against his dogma, we are hoping this book is a big wake up call to Americans. It clearly outlines Pacelle’s plan to brainwash people and change everything most of us hold dear, including ruining our economy and way of life.

In the past, The Animal Rights Industry has bombarded people with emotional messaging. They have been working to eliminate animals from our lifestyle in every aspect, from what we eat, to owning animals such as horses, livestock and even companion animals. Now, with the publication of this book, it is clear that the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and its allies are refocusing on a new plan. This plan is centered on convincing society that a vegan lifestyle is best for animals and best from an economic aspect for humans.

He is promoting a society that treats animals like humans, not for a society where humans treat animals humanely. Pacelle claims his “Humane Economy”, would allow us to remove our need for animals altogether and instead create new ways for our society to live. In the way he envisions and by his rules.
The radical Animal Rights basic premise is this, “If you use animals, you are guilty of animal cruelty. If we don’t use animals, we will be better off as a society.” According to Mr. Pacelle, it is only through his so-called “enlightened consumer” (a person that eliminates the use of animals), animals are truly cared for and nourished. This is ridiculous. For thousands and thousands of years mankind has utilized and bred domestic animals; to feed us, for products and for companionship. Because of this, they rely on us for their very survival.

A major question about veganism is its viability on a large scale. Pacelle’s, manifesto is completely ignoring the impact veganism has on human health. It also disregards studies that show how wide-spread veganism would damage the economy. Jayson Lusk and Bailey Norwood are researchers who studied the potential impact of vegetarianism on the economy; their study showed that many vegan/vegetarian foods are less efficient to produce than meat. A diet rich in meat is much more efficient for acquiring protein and the other essential vitamins and minerals humans need to survive. They note that, “Livestock can be produced on otherwise relatively unproductive land, whereas fruits and vegetables, along with being inherently more expensive, require high-quality, productive land; land which, in the U.S. anyway, is relatively rare.”

This inane model would have disastrous effects. The types of changes “The Humane Economy” is advocating would cause a major shift in food production that would be impossible for farmers to adapt to. There is no doubt the immense costs of a dramatic switch would be passed on to consumers. It will severely burden the very people the HSUS is trying to convince a “Humane Economy” would benefit. It would have an even more dramatic impact on low income families who are having a Huhard time feeding themselves as it is.

If Pacelle’s plan becomes a reality, all Americans would struggle and domestic animals would cease to exist. That doesn’t seem very humane to us.”


The agenda of vegan based, homegrown Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorist Organizations is dangerous; HSUS at the center and in association  with numerous other fanatical organizations-Wayne Pacelle ceo HSUS  These organizations are of grave concern and considered vegan based homegrown Fanatical Terrorists Organizations that pose a threat to not only US Animal Culture but to the world.

Zoo Wars-Over My Dead Body!!!~ Local Organization Pleads to get Ringling Circus Animals Once Curtain Closes

•January 18, 2017 • Leave a Comment

In the news-Ringling set to close-Another great American business is closing and comes of no surprise, not really after the protests and lengthy court case, and opposition of the constant court cases against the bans on animals with changes in laws and bans on animals which have always been the heart of the show…After a 146 year run the last performance is set and announced.


For many, animals and humans alike, the show closed when the elephants left the ring and were sent to sanctuary. The losses were greater than just the people employed by the show or the shows loss of an act and then the obvious happened; a drop in ticket sales.

I’ll list just a few off the top of my head but the economic losses is far reaching and far greater than my list : Advertising sales, feed sales, fuel sales, hotels, restaurants, grocery stores, education, rentals and purchases, fabric, seamstresses, and the list goes on and on to include the farmer who grows the hay, bales the hay and sells the hay that the show would purchase along the route where the show played…All due to the loss of animals from the show.

The obvious, for the show: The loss of ticket sales, novelties and concessions as there was a serious drop in attendance for people who would no longer be so interested in seeing a show without their beloved elephants; some saying the show lost it’s sole when the gentle giants of the Greatest Show on Earth would remain home.

The benefit, economically speaking, would be to the businesses where the sanctuary is located for the elephants residence. But getting down to brass tactics, so to speak, WHO really benefits has to be questioned because it wasn’t the show, the elephants, their trainers or their handlers from the win that was achieved by the bullying and hate crimes ALL done by the vegan based homegrown Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorist Organizations that proclaimed victory-as the general public lost.

The greatest loss is what this has taught children about the power of bullying and loss of freedom to make a choice of whether or not they would buy a ticket to the show…It would appear that, to some, that maybe these Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorists were deserving of leadership because they are looking out for animals however, that couldn’t be further from the truth…HSUS, PETA, ASPCA and others are NOT a charity but instead use the money collected thru donations where they hold an IRS 501-C-3 as a charity based not-for-profit for political purposes that do not help animals and instead infringe on civil liberties for laws and regulations to end all human relationships with animals-ALL of them proclaiming victory.


These vegan based homegrown Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorists stood and still stand outside arenas where the shows will be held with their signs and their voices HARRASSING people wanting and trying to enter to see the show; some deciding not to go; some afraid to cross the line as if it were a union on strike or gave a second thought to entering for a family evening of fun, entertainment and education that the show provides, as terrorists will be terrorists, homegrown or from foreign lands, do what they do, as we have seen so many times done before by Animal Rights Fanatics.

Exactly how many parents literally believe that the show might be an unsafe place to go or take their children when they have to file past fanatics harassing a business?!? Of course it also appeared as if the show was tired of the fight and the expense of it, economically speaking on behalf of the show…with the creation of bans, laws and regulations making it a battle all in the name of entertainment-and has since no longer enjoyable to come to town and then to be confronted with yet another battle for their rights to be there. Just how willing would you be to go to work each day if you were confronted with such a battle and a loss of financial gain (wages earned).

The very same people are protesting zoos, and the real animal sanctuaries, how chickens should live free-range, claim that cows farts are polluting the air, against breeding of any animals, attack individual animal owners with false claims of abuse and cruelty, the keeping of birds and even fish, attacked Sea World who is now suffering from an economic loss in ticket sales (as well as surrounding businesses-Fanatics aren’t buying tickets or providing any type of support so Sea World will likely also shut down, and the list goes on AGAINST all human relationships with animals.

So Feld announces that circus days for Ringling Bros will be coming to an end soon…It was just a matter of time for the pleas to Feld to provide them with free animals…Carole Baskin of Big Cat Rescue (BCR) never misses a beat or an opportunity to hit the media and advertise (Professional Beggar) for money even thou they have MILLIONS in reserve with a big bulk of the money they receive is used for political purposes, salaries to their families…with very little going towards the animals and their care.

the headline reads:

Local Organization Pleads to get Ringling Circus Animals Once Curtain Closes

TAMPA — ‘The show must go on.’ For years this was a phrase echoed throughout the circus tent.

“Of course we’re sad. It was a difficult decision to make,” says Kenneth Feld, CEO of Feld Entertainment.

But now the greatest show on earth is coming to a stop in May.

-Follow the link for the rest of the crap spewing from Big Cat Rescue -I just don’t have the stomach to put the rest of such propaganda on this blog-Below my response and Action Alert Petition below:

Over My Dead Body
I have to ask why WTSP considers this news worthy or demonstrates any reason to run this story and providing Tampa Bay with FAKE NEWS just so Big Cat Rescue can attempt to attach their name to  The Greatest Show on Earth. It’s rather distasteful as many others agree!
There are numerous reasons why NOT to place any big cat at BCR.
You know this is a SCAM right?!?
[Note the donate buttons on everything published by BCR yet they get the food-FREE Vet care-FREE or at the end of the article as all articles; pleas for money-If it’s not going to make a buck then why bother doing it according to BCR sources. In this case, I must assume that WTSP supports SCAMING and BILKING the public for donations]
However, here’s why NOT even thou all this really is, is a SCAM for more begging the public for donations:
(1) Vet care at BCR is questionable at best with the latest slew of deaths. Demonstrates you get what you pay for but what does it matter? As long as the donations and attention continues to pour in for a particular cat; said cat will survive another day…Otherwise, death occurs and a new SCAM campaign for donations begins with another fur to be placed on display in the party room at BCR-No mention of a grave or the disposal of the actual body or body parts…Charaka Tiger, the latest victim and then to claim there is no cause for death just as numerous others that died at BCR…Once the money runs out, so does the cat’s life-Just hand it over to the vet. Just a quick look at the recorded record of questionable deaths is a tell all. Note: Charaka’s death was noticed by a cam viewer Charaka appeared lifeless-NOT noticed by an employee as one would suspect for a recovering animal. So cam viewers that morning watched a tiger die.
FACT (2) BCR is built on an old landfill and the water provided for the cats contaminated run off. Note: Was a landfill when Nick Nuccio was mayor and private property was used and piled high in a heap of stinking garbage, asbestos and old batteries for landfill purposes on the outskirts of Tampa at that time and now likely loaded with PCBs.  
(3) Carole Baskin, ceo Big Cat Rescue joined PETA to remove the animals from the circus and helped with writing campaigns against the circus.
Ringling Bros (Feld Corp.) had a contract with BCR to provide for the care of the tigers they had placed there previously while Baskin fraudulently begged for donations for their care.
(4) BCR only takes cats they consider to be a ‘HEADLINER’ to bring in more paying customers and exploitation purposes. Just how much money does BCR plan to gain off the backs of retired Ringling Bros cats?
(5) And most important reason to NOT place any more animals at BCR is that Carole Baskin hears voices and acts on what the voices tell her…This could present itself as a public safety issue with what is considered potentially dangerous animals in the care of someone so mentally unstable. -Seriously…Baskin needs to be evaluated -Santiago said he heard voices before going on a killing spree in an airport
-HELLO…Isn’t anyone paying attention to the blog posts from Carole Baskin? I guess I need to do the investigative reporting because this wasn’t newsworthy and just another ploy from BCR to get another free mention in the news. Don Lewis was presumed dead and then declared dead for Carole Lewis (now Carole Baskin) can inherit millions and leave his children with nothing. His body has never been recovered.
Sign the petition:

baskin-hears-voicesWords written by Carole Baskin poses a serious question to FFW if they should revoke BCR’s permit and rehome the animals as quickly as possible-Once you know of a potential danger, it becomes your responsibility to act on it-Sign the petition. 

Revoke Florida Fish and Wildlife License Before Another Tragic Accident Happens

If a person is so delusional to hear voices, print it online and has been a suspect in feeding her husband to her tigers, protection orders filed against her and giving money to Domestic Terrorist (Per says the FBI), do you think she is safe to have close to 100 dangerous animals in a busy retail part of Tampa Florida?,,20127008,00.html

Zanesville is an example of what an unstable person might or might not do and she is obsessed with using Zanesville as an example of all of her online post, that the threat could be real right there in the Tampa Florida area next.

Sign the petition that if someone can post all over the internet how people should not own exotic animals because they are so dangerous and the people that own them are so dangerous and unstable that what Carole Baskin of Big Cat Rescue can admit to in her own words about hearing voices and sometimes even hears God himself, should not be the one to own exotic animals in the middle of Tampa Florida.

If she thinks a stable person in her eyes should not own one. What do you think about someone of this caliber owning nearly 100 big cats in a heavy populated area.

This petition will be delivered to: Florida Governor Rick Scott

TAKE ACTION NOW!!! Please sign the petition to alert the authorities that there is a potentially dangerous situation that needs to be dealt with immediately…If we are to accept that Terry Thompson released his animals and committed suicide then we must consider the possibility of a reoccurrence involving Carole Baskin and the animals at Big Cat Rescue.

Zoo Wars-HATE and FAKE NEWS Continues to Be Promoted by BCR and other Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorists Organizations-What Does This REALLY Mean?!?

•January 15, 2017 • Leave a Comment


So Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Baily Circus, a circus GIANT  has announced the will be shutting down in May shortly after announcing they now have, for the first time in what, 145 years in business, a Mistress of ceremonies. Many shocked with the news….others like myself not so surprised. The vegan based homegrown Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorists have spoken-The circus lost their ‘sole’ taking the elephants to sanctuary rather than keeping them happily on the road performing in a wholesome family based entertainment. Economics and homegrown terrorists have been lead to this…Expecting Ringling to stand and fight on it’s own as so many businesses and private owners have been forced to do; fighting in corrupt courts and against a sea of voices to end ALL human relationships with animals. Today and yesterday rejoicing with this news and likely will continue their protests until day zero when they will proclaim their win and go after another one which has already begun-How much longer before there won’t be a circus coming to town?!?

Each and every donation to HSUS, PETA, ASPCA and many many others has given them a voice to create laws against ALL facets of animal usage including pet ownership. YOU donate then YOU have given them the power to destroy businesses and private owner rights. You decide that you are against cruelty to animals -who isn’t?-and allowed the creation of both civil and criminal laws that have led to the destruction…They want more…they want anyone accused to be found guilty proclaiming the animals don’t have a voice and themselves the voice for the animals-BULLSHIT-now want it to be a felony like Michigan and Rhode Island.

It takes the fall of a GIANT to get your attention and now another casualty in the fight for animal ownership-When they finally have the meat removed from your dinner table will you then be shocked and bewildered (?!?) because it’s going in that direction -Already started with chickens…the prices escalating as farmers are forced to make changes that have cost them thousands…The price of chicken and eggs has escalated with CA being the major supplier in the US with additional laws created dictating to farmers how they will raise and keep their animals.

Already there are laws in place to stop the sale of pure bred companion animals in pet stores-Mostly an attack on ‘pet stores’ against the sale (ban) on the sale of companion animals…The national cry of adopt (PURCHASE) a ‘rescue’. -Do you now own a mutt and exclaim “I have a rescue dog?!!”  -BULLSHIT!!! You have a dog stolen from it’s owner thru the mis-use of laws and mostly occurred because YOU allowed for those cruelty laws and the over-regulation of businesses using animals. Bans already in place on exotic animal ownership with the  false claims of public safety issues or that it’s cruel-BULLSHIT!!!


So take a good hard look at the FAKE NEWS and the contagious spread of lies that have brought about knee-jerk emotional reactions for YOUR money that has gone to help with the creation of laws and regulations -Your money has helped no animal and done harm to animals and their owners!!!

If you are reading, this I dare you to share this information and get involved…Just a click away from FB or Twitter…Follow this blog, read thru it and share the posts contained in it. Find other bloggers and follow them -Share the information as animal owners must dig their way out…If you own one dog or one cat, this is important to you and your pet!!!-Soon you might not be able to get another least I even mention the S/N laws have begun-They don’t grow on trees!!! It’s one thing to suggest S/N and another to make it law-The research demonstrates it’s not for animal health issues-It’s to prevent breeding and can be harmful to your animal…You have one animals, contained in your home is S/N because… -BULLSHIT!!!

A circus GIANT has fallen like two others before it that went by unnoticed…Take fucking notice!!! I refuse to stand alone any longer I refuse to accept the destruction of human relationships with animals!!!


Carole Baskin ceo Big Cat Rescue….Wayne Pacelle ceo HSUS…Ingrid Newkirk ceo PETA and many other vegan based homegrown Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorists Organizations including the ASPCA with their ads and commercials claiming that animal owners commit abuse and showing set-up pictures of abused animals-Reporting on their blogs and on their FB pages, their lies and deceit for the sole purpose for the collection of donations-All FAKE NEWS and HATE CRIMES targeting every animal owner.

One generation and outWayne Pacelle now ceo HSUS has never swayed from his intent to end animal ownership and all human relationships with animals.

Those sites are written by private citizens that have no government authority are stating their opinions and spewing FAKE news and lies in an attempt to end human relationships with animals. Within their ads and commercials are their claims of animal cruelty while they themselves are committing acts of animal cruelty that are somehow overlooked and somehow considered reasonable to be filmed or recreated; leaning towards some sort of urgency over a dog needing a haircut, or just a bath is cruel and needs rescue. FACT-It’s unreasonable and should not be overlooked that they are accusing people of animal cruelty for something so easily corrected as a bath, long mails and/or a haircut-There can not be a double standard when there are laws created concerning animal cruelty -Shelter, Food and Water are the basic requirements-Nothing more and animals receiving food, water and shelter are usually pretty happy…even if they have flea, worms, need a haircut, etc…

The creation of the Animal Welfare Act and the creation of APHIS within the USDA as a federal agency in place to guard against cruelty for commercial purposes which includes animals used for ads and commercials-and in the circus-animals used for entertainment purposes. Laws are in place that concern animal bookers requiring they be permitted, follow regulations and be subjected to regular inspections. Laws concerning animals that are bred to sell their off spring…There can be no double standard where the law is concerned yet these IRS 501-C-3 Not for Profit status organizations are given a free ride…not likely the animals you see in those pictures or videos from the ASPCA or HSUS or other vegan based homegrown Animal Rights Terrorist Organization has a USDA connected to it yet they collect money off the unregulated animals proclaiming it’s to help animals that, in turn, use your money for propaganda and the creation of more laws that don’t help animals. DEMAND THAT ALL RESCUES HAVE A USDA/APHIS permit…after all, an adoption of an animal is a sale of an animal and the law is for ALL animal businesses be regulated!!!


Animal owners, when using their animals for commercial purposes, are regulated and required to purchase a permit thru the USDA/APHIS agency and this should also include rescue organizations. This should include the making of ads and commercials for donations or selling animals especially if they are using rescued animals in consideration that we are led to believe that the animals in those ads and TV commercials are suffering and would then be subjected to being EXPLOITED for commercial purpose by a NFP organization. The USDA/APHIS, in charge of making sure that the regulations of the Animal Welfare Act has neglected to their responsibility to provide for ‘rescued animals’ and of great concern in consideration that these animals are being sold…The USDA/APHIS government agency has stated that no matter what it’s called-including adoption-it is the sale of an animal!!!

The Secretary of Agriculture in charge of the USDA/APHIS agencies left his post as of Friday-Tom Vilsack, largely connected to vegan based homegrown Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorists Organizations, is largely to blame for allowing the agency to be infiltrated by Fanatics and pushed for outrageous laws and regulations while ignoring the cries from Ohio about the abuse of Governor Kasich’s ODA abuse of animals and their owners, ignoring the abuse at certain rescues and sanctuaries…The Secretary of Agriculture is the most important figure concerning American Animal Culture. The cries of people falsely accused have gone by ignored by the FBI even though their job to defend and protect the rights of US citizens.

Animal GreedHSUS is the eye at the center of extreme FAKE NEWS and HATE CRIMES against ALL animal owners.

Has no one paid attention to the new law created by President Obama concerning Fake News or that there are laws written concerning Hate Crimes?!? While I don’t like FAKE news I believe in freedom of the press and my right to write in this blog to point out the FAKE news and HATE crimes…

Focus on exotic animals and exotic animal ownership:

Carole Baskin/Big Cat Rescue/BCR will be the focus of this post demonstrating her FAKE NEWS and Hate CRIMES against private exotic animal owners and anyone who doesn’t side with her and her opinion. Baskin has targeted businesses and against commerce the utilizes animals.

Baskin’s actions are a federal offence of the Animal Enterprise Terrorist Act (AETA) which are both Criminal and Civil Offenses. That’s not to say that the other Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorist Organizations are of less importance -Wayne Pacelle/HSUS along with Ingrid Newkirk are also at the center of this ‘shit storm’ with their promotions against people having relationships with animals and ALL animal usage. HSUS is NOT a government agency but instead a NFP TERRORIST organization committed to their cause dictating for more useless illegal and unconstitutional laws and regulations from small towns to federal creation.

These organizations are completely against all animal ownership and usage. They promote the creation of illegal and unconstitutional laws against all animal owner usage…None of those and many others should be allowed to continue to be considered a charity and/or hold an IRS NFP 501-C-3 and/or C-4 status which allows for paying lobbyists and involved in the election process or the creation of laws and regulations with donated money-By no means are those organizations involved in charity work especially when they utilize FAKE NEWS in the process. HSUS has no animal shelters and provides less than 1% of the funding collected to help animals-Might as well say none of the funding helps any animals but instead will pay high salaries, law suits, commercials and ads, lawyers, retirement funds, etc.-animals, their ’cause’ is overlooked by themselves, the IRS and the Animal Welfare Act.


Take a look at Carole Baskin’s 911 Animal site. The site has been an issue of concern for years by exotic animal owners. Baskin claims the site is educational…How can it possibly be considered educational when there are so many false statements, slanders people and promotes issues concerning Criminal AETA offenses?!? I say the slander and deceitful intentional lies demonstrates it as FAKE NEWS and a HATE CRIME…much of it is repeating non-factual news (FAKE NEWS) and promoting for the readers to take action against animal owners and businesses where no crime exists and is an AETA offense!!! This includes the website and all social media as well as all media outlets these types of organizations utilize.

Tiger scam

Web of Not-For-Peofits created by Carole Baskin as CEO

Baskin also writes FAKE complaints to the USDA and encourages her readers to do the same. This should also be considered an extreme offense (AETA); A waste of both donated and taxpayer money-YOUR MONEY!!! Each and every complaint is required to be investigated yet the complaints themselves are not investigated and nor is anyone punished for false claims and filing FAKE reports. Fake reports equivalent to FAKE NEWS and definitely an AETA offense!!!

What is

For those of you that aren’t already aware of Big Cat Rescue’s wall of shame, 911 Animal Abuse, despite the name, it’s a website basically created for the sole purpose of smearing the name and reputation of people and businesses that don’t align with Big Cat Rescue’s ideology. Upon hearing the name, most people would think 911 Animal Abuse is a website dedicated to exposing animal abuse and cruelty, they wouldn’t be wrong for thinking that, but the truth is a little different. You don’t even have to abuse an animal or own an exotic animal to have your business or personal information splattered across multiple pages of that website…

[More from the above link-Follow the link for the entire article]

Why is Juan Garcia Being Targeted?

I, one of their most recent additions, was added for simply speaking against Big Cat Rescue. I can only assume by adding me to their website they’re attempting to discredit my good name by associating it with animal abuse. Among other things, they claim I’m simply a voice for those that own and exhibit big cats which couldn’t be further from the truth, but the truth and Big Cat Rescue don’t go hand in hand. The fact that I was added onto that website and essentially labeled an animal abuser for only being outspoken against Big Cat Rescue and for visiting multiple facilities to see how they compare, proves just how deceitful and erroneous that website truly is.

Unsurprisingly, the page dedicated to me has gone through many recent changes in the course of little over a month. You can view the changes yourself by clicking HERE and navigating through the archived history of that page.

They even resorted to stealing a picture of me from my Facebook account from the time I was still attending high school and posted the city I resided in along with the full address of my residence. I’m sure we can all agree that that was a very dishonorable thing to do as I, myself, haven’t stooped low enough to do that on my website even though I could have done that quite a while back which would likely please many disgruntled people. Before I retaliated I found that my address was removed. I can only speculate that it was removed because it made them look like the aggressor when they wanted to paint my image as one…

Who Runs

If you’re new to all of this then I’m sure you’re wondering how exactly do I know 911 Animal Abuse is run by Big Cat Rescue, specifically Carole Baskin, Founder and CEO of Big Cat Rescue. Well, here’s how I know, the front page of that website says so. Susan Bass is Big Cat Rescue’s PR person.
To read the rebuttal, please follow the link-
In closing, Juan Garcia states: “On a side note, it seems like people who have Hispanic names and comment negatively about Big Cat Rescue will now end up on the 911 Animal Abuse website probably because they think they must be connected to me. Check this page out that popped up at around the same time they created a page about me.”
All those groups connected-BCR is GFAS which is unverified as it can’t be verified yet accepted as a member. GFAS connected to HSUS and if you look at the chart you can see they donate to each other somewhere along the way. This is dangerous to not only exotic animal ownership but to ALL animal ownership-Consider yourself well informed.

from Humane Watch- Detroit Zoo CEO Aligns with PETA and HSUS—and Against Zoos

•January 5, 2017 • 2 Comments

It’s more than likely that the Detroit Zoo does not stand alone considering the laws in Michigan. As is, the Michigan cruelty laws are, as well they should be of great concern. Michigan has made the issue of animal cruelty a felony making anyone accused and appears simply by accusation, guilty and the non-existent ‘crime’ with a far greater penalty. Many an animal owner will now become a felon with a victimless crime that does nothing for the concern of animal welfare in fact, helps no animals.

This past year, an inexperienced Michigan Animal Control officer with minimal training, accused private exotic animal owners of cruelty and without any ownership hearing, without any actual criminal cause as there can be no crime against a persons property and therefore, a victimless crime; the animals (their property) were seized and given to a Michigan Zoo and an out of state animal sanctuary; both desiring the gain of the animals, held ill-intent towards the property’s actual legal longstanding owners. The results became the gain of the very expensive animals who had never been abused to become additions to the Binder Park Zoo and Black Pine Animal SanctuaryThere was no crime ever committed other than the crime of accusing the owners yet imposed punishment on the owners and the ‘gift’ in the taking of their animals and awarding them those establishments  as if some sort of reward. Animals were sent from full on contact with their owners to places that support no contact and against private exotic animal ownership although was what those animals were accustom.

Links of Interest:

Michigan’s Detroit Zoo is far from being alone against private ownership of exotic animals least anyone forget the outright bans in some states and the outrageous laws that are improperly applied in Ohio since the creation of Kasich’s new laws and near outright ban supported by Jack Hanna and the Columbus Zoo.

Jack Hanna with Kasich signing SB310 as law

There was no ownership hearing but instead a hearing concerning the ultimate outcome of placing animals and gives rise for real concern.


from HumaneWatch:

Detroit Zoo CEO Aligns with PETA and HSUS-and AGAINST Zoos

Last month, Harvard’s “animal law” program hosted a two-day event on the federal Animal Welfare Act whereby activist lawyers plotted how they would change the law so that they could start a deluge of litigation against animal owners. The Harvard program is run by a former PETA lawyer and a former litigator for the Animal Legal Defense Fund (more PETA lawyers, essentially), so its agenda is exactly what you’d expect: Using the legal system to push animal liberation. But there was one speaker who, at first glance, would seem out of place: Detroit Zoo CEO Ron Kagan.

It seems odd that a guy in charge of a zoo would show up to hobnob with radical activists who want to shut down these facilities. But after a little digging, it begins to make sense. The only mystery is why the Detroit Zoo’s board continues to keep him around.

The first thing you should know about Ron Kagan is that he’s a known liar. Kagan was docked pay in 2007 when it emerged that he had lied about receiving a Ph.D. from Hebrew University. The Detroit City Council—the city owns the zoo’s land and animals—gave the non-doctor a public vote of no confidence. Yet despite that flap, in recent years Kagan’s pay has skyrocketed. In 2014 he earned $767,000, a jump of 162% in just 3 years, and he even gets housing on the Detroit Zoo grounds. Keep in mind that taxpayers from this recently bankrupt city are supporting the zoo in part.

But more disturbingly, Kagan has chosen to ally himself with PETA. In a Tedx speech last year, Kagan calls PETA his “partner”:

You’ll notice here just a small handful of partners that we work with on lots of issues. PETA is one of them. If people who work in zoos and aquariums don’t define themselves as people for the ethical treatment of animals, who would? So we don’t view them as the enemy, we view them as partners.

PETA as a partner for zoos? PETA wants to shut down all zoos. PETA calls zoos “prisons” and claims zoos are a form of “slavery.” PETA would rather—by its own admission—see elephants killed than be cared for in a zoo, much as the group has killed 35,000 animals by its own hand. Kagan has also received a “Backbone Award” from PETA, which he boasts about in his LinkedIn profile.

Kagan’s also been an ally of PETA’s big brother, the Humane Society of the United States—even going against the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) to do it. Kagan brought HSUS CEO Wayne Pacelle out to Detroit in 2011 for a symposium, and HSUS gave Kagan a slot at its Taking Action for Animals conference the following year. Detroit Zoo also signed on to a petition, alongside HSUS and other radical groups, submitted to the USDA in 2013 to ban people from taking pictures with baby tigers or bear cubs. Not a single other zoo was a petitioner—in fact, the AZA has serious concerns about the petition.

At the Harvard law event last month, Kagan argued for enforcement of the Animal Welfare Act to move from the USDA to the Department of Justice. Think about that for a second. Instead of inspections and enforcement being done by USDA staff, does Kagan think they should be done by the FBI, US Marshals, or DEA? Does he want the Hostage Rescue Team to helicopter in armed with automatic rifles if a bonobo’s cage isn’t clean? We’re being a tad facetious, but the idea that we should move animal welfare enforcement to a more militaristic branch of the federal government ought to concern everyone, to say nothing of the wisdom of diverting resources that are better spent fighting drug cartels and terrorists.

At the end of the day, there are people who believe in zoos—that is, most of society—and a small band of radicals that wants to do away with our ability to have animals. It’s clear which side Kagan is on. The question is, will the zoo community leadership keep letting this fox in the henhouse?


As bad as the USDA/APHIS is, I am having trouble rapping my head around giving authority to the Department of Justice for Animal Welfare issues-Kagan is completely out of his mind for even coming up with that idea, and then promoted it-seriously!?!

 The issue of animal ownership can not and must not be taken so lightly as to take animals from one animal owner and placing it into the hands of another.

Bye 2016-Hello 2017…Happy New Year

I just abandoned my end of the year post-Deciding instead to just wish you a Happy New Year and to speak of a few things on my mind…January 20, 2017 is just around the corner and I welcome a new president and the new administration…

Bye-Bye UN Agenda 21/2030 and the idea of the New World Order leaning towards the total destruction of the American Way of Life and our American Animal Culture…Their will be a new sheriff in town adhering to US policies, the US Constitution and a devote respect for Civil Liberty rights.

HELLO 2017, now just hours away and I’m compelled to say that I’m looking forward to hearing who the new Secretary of Agriculture will be and the changes that are about to take place to protect our American Way of Life. I am hopeful that there will be protection of our American Animal Culture by putting a halt to animal owners being terrorized by vegan based, homegrown Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorists -Their groups and organizations of untrained, non government individuals with their emotionally generated opinions of their claims of animal cruelty and making every attempt to be a crime when no crime has been committed considering there isn’t a victim-only people can be victims by law, not animals…Time to recognize this fact and to put an end to laws that help no animals while criminalizing people.

Bye Bye to untrained non government people who create the illegal and unconstitutional laws. Laws should never be created that are based on emotionally driven politics that don’t help animals but by creation make criminals of animal owners…Repeating myself-There can be no crime when there is no victim-Laws are created and needed to protect people…period!!! Right to life, liberty and PROPERTY-YOUR ANIMALS are YOUR PROPERTY-No one has the right to take property when no crime has been committed and let me add, it is completely unlawful to seize property with no criminal charges.


Hopefully Carole Baskin ceo for Big Cat Rescue will finally be exposed by the authorities and to the public for the lies and destruction of the lives perpetuated on animal owners…I am hopeful they will find out what happened the actual bodies of 179 animals MISSING-Just as I am hopeful the body of her late husband will be found. Baskin has furs on display in her party room but lacks any explanation for what happened to the rest of their bodies-There is no explanation to be found of laying their bodies to rest. Did she sell the bones and other body parts with a high demand for tiger bones and body parts-possibly their flesh went for human consumption!?! Will her PETA/HSUS/GFAS supporters continue with their support under such circumstance as missing animal bodies continue to accumulate?!? I hope that she is forced to show actual proof of where 179 animals have been laid to rest-and wondering if she can!!!-HA!

Just answer the question1

One of Obama’s recent executive actions is against FAKE news-What about Carol Baskins 911 animal abuse site against animal owners and her reproduction of Fake News?!? How about all those dreadful deceptive ads and TV commercials produced by HSUS/PETA/ASPCA and all the other Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorists Organization and their filing false reports of animal cruelty?!? New laws for 2017…Where do we report Fake News?!?



PETA still attacking animal owners in 2016-Will things change in 2017?


PETA Threatens beloved Family Zoo

In the latest animal rights outrage, the misnamed People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is attacking two American businesses and using taxpayer money to remove animals from our lives.   In the first case, PETA is threatening to sue the family owned DeYoung Family Zoo in upper Michigan owned by Bud DeYoung and Carrie Cramer because these vegan extremists just don’t like how experienced animal owners are caring for their animals.

The DeYoung Zoo which opened in 1990 has many large natural habitat areas and was featured on the My Life is a Zoo television show on National Geographic recently.   The downside to being featured in the media is that it invites urban animal rights hysterics to believe that the DeYoungs need PETA’s keyboard warrior permission to care for their animals.  Surprising no one, a reporter from New York City was outraged when Carrie Cramer kissed a hyena on the show. How dare she! How unhygienic! I wonder if he stays up at night stressing over the millions of Americans who allow their dogs to sleep on their beds.

Fortunately the public has a vastly different opinion of animal care than the media and these out of touch activists.  Over 70,000 people a year visit the DeYoung zoo to interact with their big cats, bears, chimpanzee and a multitude of other animals. The zoo also successfully bred endangered Siberian tigers in the past, helping the species to avoid extinction. Today, Michigan has outlawed breeding.  The breed ban now contributes to the extinction of these beautiful big cats.

PETA is also threatening to sue the Missouri Primate Foundation in Missouri. The Missouri Primate Foundation is a 15 acre USDA licensed, charitable sanctuary for unwanted chimpanzees. Owner, Connie Casey takes in retired performing animals and animals that have lost their homes through exotic animal bans in other states. To raise money to care for all the animals, in the past the Casey’s ran a company called Chimparty in which the younger more social animals were used as actors on commercials, for ads such a series of Hallmark cards, or paid educational visits to nursing homes and schools. Activists who are against animals being used for entertainment were outraged and the business closed after numerous activist attacks.

In both cases, PETA recently sent out their typical threatening letters bullying these two organizations over ownership of their chimpanzees. Slandering their reputation and defaming the DeYoung Zoo by characterizing them as a “notorious roadside zoo,” PETA is threatening to sue them under the federal Endangered Species Act. Show me a zoo in America that you can’t get to by a road? Using the typical animal rights hypocrisy and talking out of both sides of their mouth, PETA claims that visitors are allowed to gawk at Louie the chimp yet at the same time he lacks an active stimulating life.   Get serious!

This is the same PETA who believes that people do not have the right to own pets and recently told a Virginia court that dogs are worthless and that stealing and killing a little girl’s dog was not “outrageous” conduct on their behalf. In their Notice of Intent to File Citizen Suit against the Missouri Primate Foundation,  PETA claims “the Chimpanzees are confined to cages that lack sufficient space, both horizontally and vertically, to allow them to express the physical behaviors of a chimpanzee.”  As if PETA would know. Nothing but a cult made up of largely urban vegans, PETA has no expertise in what chimpanzees need. PETA does not run a single animal sanctuary anywhere. PETA further offered to transport the chimps to a PETA approved Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS) facility that does not allow the public to see the animals in their care.

BREAKING: Surrender is not an option-Taking Action Against the Fanatical Animal Rights Extremists

Wallace, Michigan – In response to the People for The Ethical Treatment of Animals’ (PETA) recent threats to sue the family owned DeYoung Family Zoo, Harold DeYoung, owner and operator of the zoo, filed a lawsuit today, December 27, 2016, for declaratory and injunctive relief and defamation against the radical animal rights organization.

Kurtis B. Reeg, the managing partner of Goldberg Segalla, LLP’s, St. Louis office, and his colleague Lynn A. Lehnert, both attorneys representing Cavalry Group member, Harold DeYoung, filed the lawsuit in response to PETA’s false claims that the zoo’s possession of certain chimpanzees is in violation of the federal Endangered Species Act.
Mark Patterson, CEO of The Cavalry Group, LLC stated, “PETA’s false allegations against the DeYoung family zoo is nothing more than an effort to run a successful and law abiding animal enterprise out of business while at the same time using it’s slanted media reports as a fundraiser for this  radical animal rights group. PETA’s false claims are rooted in emotionally charged propaganda aligned with their radical animal rights ideology, and PETA has repeatedly used this tactic and their fundraising to attack small business owners.”
The DeYoung Family Zoo, a mainstay business and attraction in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan for many years, has provided outstanding care and habitat for the chimpanzees who would perish if introduced back into the wild.   PETA, which is considered a militant animal rights group, advocates banning private ownership of exotic animals, and claims the DeYoung’s chimps would be better off living out their lives in a so-called animal sanctuary, typically run by like-minded animal rightists who know little about proper care of chimpanzees.   PETA’s track record shows very little interest in the negative consequences of their actions.
The DeYoung Family Zoo, a member of the nationwide animal enterprise advocacy group The Cavalry Group, is fighting back in court to protect their lawful business against the abuse from this activist animal rights group.

The Cavalry Group is a member based company working to protect and defend the Constitutional and private property rights of law abiding animal owners, animal related businesses, sportsmen, and agricultural concerns legally and legislatively, nationwide.  


But you need a serch warrant to do that


No search warrant it’s called TRESPASSING!!!
Personal Note-Never forget-sending my message-Hopefully Sheriff McKnight got the message loud and clear!!! Breaking the law with no criminal action and there was no victim accept the people abused thru unlawful procedure of the law…John Wilson-Theft of his animals without due process…Teresa Reynes…theft of her animals with unlawful due process making her a criminal…and the list will continue in Marion County until he gets the message loud and clear so, I’ll keep sending it -Protect the community and the real victims of a crime LAWFULLY!!! And I’ll keep reminding him as long as he remains a law enforcement officer and maybe thereafter, considering the duress continues!!!


So Happy New Year!!!

Zoo Wars~Governor Kasich Linked to the Killing of Another Big Cat-Shere Con

•December 17, 2016 • 1 Comment

A few years back, Ohio Governor John Kasich signed into Ohio law a ban on exotic animal ownership. The law has cost Taxpayers millions tat would be better spent of helping PEOPLE residing in the state of Ohio. And it’s not just Ohio Taxpayers but what goes on in Ohio costs all Taxpayers throughout the United States. Besides the money spent to create but includes and not limited to the creation of the law itself, an agency known as the ODA, an exotic animal penitentiary, staffing for an agency (ODA) for regulation and the penitentiary (the animals that are confiscated or surrendered when people can not possibly comply with the new regulations although many hold a USDA permit, have for years and well within or exceeding the USDA regulations), sending sway teams in and guards during the illegal and inhumane treatment of animals…The list goes on and beyond anything you would expect; ridding the state of exotic animals (Personal Property)  is rather extensive…The enforcement team is nothing short of a group of Nazi like state employees who have over-step the limits of the law that were set in place to keep US citizens from theft of personal property.

Jack Hanna with Kasich signing SB310 as lawSigning the Exotic Animal Ban-Governor Kasich being congratulated by Jack Hanna who supported the ban.

Governor Kasich is well aware of these FACTS yet he’s done nothing to stop the illegal enforcement by the ODA. Amy property seized in Ohio is to remain in Ohio especially when there  are laws in place to protect to protect the property-Property rights are a Civil Liberty as all IS citizens are guaranteed their right to life, liberty and property as established by the creation of the constitution and it’s amendments. Animals are of no interest to the government beyond a public safety issue and this law does not address the actual reason they claim as reason for the laws creation which was based on a lie. The day will come when the actual truth is exposed as to what happened the night Terry Thompson died-Remember, the FBI did NOT investigate the matter but instead was instead by the local sheriff over a situation where the evidence, simply put, just doesn’t add up. There is still a reward out there for information concerning the Thompson’s death and one day someone will step forward to provide that information and to collect that reward.

This is a meltdown of humane treatment of animals by the state and the unlawful treatment of Ohio citizens with an illegal and unconstitutional law…That truth already exposed and thousands of US citizens are appalled.

11998925_10205911240319086_4978623254050456191_nLeo died at the Ohio Exotic Animal Penitentiary due to poor animal husbandry skills of the ODA.

The facility does NOT provide for the basic needs of any animal thus less large habitats, air or sunlight.
This facility can be and has been compared to the Auschwitz Concentration Camp* used by Hitler during World War II.

I am saddened to learn another animal has died away from her owners and a death that could have been possibly prevented had proper vet care been provided. A death that could have been prevented because ripping animals from their actual owners and caregivers most certainly would have notice their was a health issue rather that being moved numerous times adding additional stress imposed on animals caught in a system of bad wrongful laws.

RIP Shere Khan

“Then the devil spawn ODA struck again. I really think they are trying to push us over the edge, well I got news for them.. I jumped off that cliff a long time ago, and climbed back up. Twice. So keep pushing, me and my army are pushing right back at you. You may enjoy the power trip your on now but your decisions and actions will be judged not only by a court of law and your peers but by God. You will have to justify your sins against a man and community that just loved and wanted to care for HIS animals. how any of them sleep at night is beyond me.
It’s time to fight back harder than ever or they are going to pick off the animals one by one. We need to be heard loud and clear all the way to Kasich’s office. Tomorrow I declare war…”

Tiger Ridge tiger dies at Colorado sanctuary

One of the tigers seized by state agents in early 2015 from a Wood County man was killed at a Colorado sanctuary Sunday, according to a statement released this afternoon by the Ohio Department of Agriculture.

Veterinarians had diagnosed the tiger known as Shere Khan with malignant melanoma after a biopsy of a mass in her mouth.

“Five veterinarians, representing Colorado State University, the Wild Animal Sanctuary, and ODA, examined the animal, reviewed its medical condition and spoke to the tiger’s regular caretakers,” department spokesman Mark Bruce said in the emailed statement. “The group unanimously decided humane euthanasia was the appropriate course of action for the animal.”

Corrina Hetrick Dankert, daughter of owner Kenny Hetrick of Tiger Ridge Exotics in Stony Ridge, said the female tiger should have been at home in her final days.

“She should never have had to have died in a place she didn’t know,” Mrs. Dankert said, noting she blames the department and not the Colorado sanctuary that was caring for the animal recently.

Shere Khan was one of three tigers and a Kodiak brown bear that in October had been removed from Spirit of the Hills sanctuary in South Dakota after an inspection by the U.S. Department of Agriculture revealed serious problems, including the poor conditions of Shere Khan and Kody, the bear.

“Had the ODA been watching her care more closely, they may have been able to catch this earlier and taken care of it,” Mrs. Dankert said. “That cancer’s growth didn’t occur overnight. Who knows how long she had it before the USDA came in, saw it, and said they had to do something about it.”

The other remaining animals are in sanctuaries in Arizona and Florida.

A necropsy is to be completed at Colorado State University.

“There is no amount of animal husbandry or medical care that could have prevented this diagnosis or prolonged the animal’s life in a humane way,” Mr. Bruce said.

The Hetrick family has been embroiled in a number of legal battles after the ODA seized 11 large exotic animals from the Tiger Ridge property in January, 2015, because Mr. Hetrick did not obtain a permit as required by state law.

An elderly lion in failing health known as Leo was killed at the ODA’s holding facility in Reynoldsburg, Ohio, in April, 2015.

“It just reopens everything,” Mrs. Dankert said. “If we win this, how many animals are we actually going to get back?”

A Wood County judge in November ruled on two cases regarding Mr. Hetrick’s permit applications, ordering the animals returned and permit applications granted, but the orders were stayed pending the state’s appeal in the 6th District Court of Appeals.

Another appeal regarding the state’s original transfer order for the animals is pending in Franklin County, as is a third action in the Wood County court regarding the 2015 search warrant.


The kicker-Did Shere Con actually receive the most up-to-date care in the treatment of a malignant tumor? Thanks to research done by my dear friend-it is questionable that the vets in CO at TWAS considered what the best treatment would be and certainly wouldn’t have been to put her to sleep as the first option!!!

Diagnosis and treatment of a dermal Malignant Melanoma in an African lion (Panthera Leo)

ArticleinJournal of Zoo and Wildlife Medicine 44(3):721-7 · September 2013with55 Reads

DOI: 10.1638/2013-0023R2.1 · Source: PubMed
A 13-yr-old intact male African lion (Panthera leo) presented with a 4-mo history of left maxillary lip swelling. On physical examination, a 10-cm-diameter, ulcerated, round, firm, and pigmented mass at the level of the left maxillary canine tooth was noticed. All other organ systems examined were within normal limits. Multiple biopsies of the mass were collected and fixed in 10% neutral buffered formalin. Histopathologic evaluation of the biopsies revealed a malignant dermal melanoma. Hematologic and plasma biochemical parameters were within normal reference ranges. Thoracic radiographs taken 3 days following initial presentation showed no evidence of metastasis of the tumor. Computed tomography of the skull and neck was performed to evaluate local tumor invasion and to plan for hypofractionated radiation therapy. Therapy included four weekly treatments of 8 gray external-beam hypofractionated radiation and four bimonthly immunotherapy treatments. Following this treatment regime, the tumor size was reduced by 50%, and surgical excision was performed. No major side effects associated with radiation or immunotherapy were seen. Six months after diagnosis, hematologic and plasma biochemical parameters were within normal limits, thoracic radiographs showed no evidence of metastasis, and the lion showed no clinical signs of disease. The lion will continue to receive immunotherapy every 6 mo for the rest of its life. To the authors’ knowledge, this is the first report of a successful treatment of a malignant dermal melanoma with external-beam hypofractionated radiation, immunotherapy, and surgical excision in an African lion.
Apparently Pat Craig’s vets are not up-to-date yet that article was written in 2013!!! I contend that Shere Con did not have to die because only an actual owner would have done all the research to make proper treatment possible. Pat Craig is not the actual owner of those animals and likely a low priority on his list.
TWAS should be held responsible for this senseless death where no attempt was made to continue her life.

Neither Dead or Alive, Shere Con’s remains will not be returned to Tiger Ridge…Her owner Kenny Hetrick will not be seeing Shere Con again. Note: Carole Baskin collects the skins and even bones of her animals and on display in the BCR Party Room and trophy hunters collect the remains of the animals they kill; both prime examples that indicate the value of these animals after their death. Whether Kenny Hetrick would collect some of the remains before laying her to rest will remain unknown. It is a FACT that he and his family are suffering and grieving over the losses that the Governor of Ohio is responsible for once he signed that bill to become [BAD] law. Anyone who has lost a pet knows what this family is feeling right now. Governor Kasich should be held libel for the senseless deaths of the Tiger Ridge animals even if the court case is lost. The Hetrick family remains the legal longstanding owners of their animals. YOU the Taxpayer should be alarmed no matter where you live in the United States as YOUR tax money is paying for the abuse of US citizens and their animals (Valuable property).


Meanwhile, Pat Craig’s Wild Animal Sanctuary who was paid with Taxpayer dollars, YOUR MONEY, to provide for the transport and care of the Tiger Ridge animals yet has used their likeness to produce one of those heart-wrenching rescue videos for the collection of funds for the animals transport and care…Can you say F-R-A-U-D?!? This should be reported to Charity Navigator

Video can be found on The Wild Animal Sanctuary FB page, November 16, 2016…He did not have permission from the animals actual owner to use their animals in the making of a video to collect donations-It’s legally libel and The Hetricks should pursue a lawsuit for the use of their animals in the making of “Anatomy of Rescue” published 11/16/2016 as a promotion to collect donations which in this case would be FRAUD as he was paid by taxpayers…Remember, this the guy who threatened to kill all his animals if he didn’t receive donations-Just how was it responsible for the ODA to place those animals in the care of a crazy person?!?

Over 17,000 likes…Over a 1.6 million views…No telling how much money was collected as donations with this heart-wrenching professional video similar to others put out and promoted by others and was made intentionally to gather finds for TWAS; however, that money should go to Hetricks because this video was made for the collecting of funds based on a lie-TWAS was paid for transport and is being paid to provide for those animals!!! No permission or contract was ever made with the Hetricks family who are the actual owners of the animals by law NOT the ODA!!!

Anatomy of Rescue can be found here: WARNING-You might just puke in your mouth over this shot!!!
