ZOO WARS-Are you Baffled by the BULLSHIT!?!

So tell me, Is the funniest post coming from Carole Lewis Baskin CEO of Big Cat Rescue EVER?!?! I just have to ask why BCR is not on the list…Too funny!!! The question about Kozlowski (WBCR) is why is he on the list for concern when it should be asking why he was allowed to have a USDA permit as a convicted felon…spent a term in jail-not allowed to own a gun or vote…Next question about Kozlowski is why Marion County sent 6 big cats to his facility…and then he only kept the youngest and most valuable. Just goes to show you that Carole Lewis Baskin has no idea what she’s doing or who she’s talking about…

Forgot herself…lol, So let me post more of the story…What Carole Lewis Baskin doesn’t want you to know:


Straight from their website… “Big Cat Rescue is the largest accredited sanctuary in the world dedicated entirely to abused and abandoned big cats. We are home to over 100 lions, tigers, bobcats, cougars and other species most of whom have been abandoned, abused, orphaned, saved from being turned into fur coats, or retired from performing acts. Our dual mission is to provide the best home we can for the cats in our care and educate the public about the plight of these majestic animals, both in captivity and in the wild, to end abuse and avoid extinction.”

But are they?

Failed Big Cat Facilities


Hardly a week goes by now that there isn’t a case in the news of a big cat facility that was once considered a haven for the animals rescued has found itself over run with animals that there are no funds to provide for.

People love a good rescue story and they want to be involved.  They will volunteer or donate to facilities that are in the public eye doing the heart pounding rescues because it makes them feel good about themselves.  They are instantly gratified with the rescue of the animal from some deplorable condition and for a few weeks they thrill in seeing the animal rebound in health and personality until the rescued one appears to be safely set for life…then they are off looking for the next thrilling rescue.

Sometimes sanctuary founders are this short sighted themselves and they continue to take on more animals than they can afford because they believe that recognition is right around the corner and surely some big donor is just about to discover them.  Sort of like the starry eyed actress that lives hand to mouth until she has lost her good looks and ability to land a meaningful job, while hoping to be discovered by Hollywood.  They usually mean well but just aren’t in touch with reality.

Often a person with the chutzpah to start a sanctuary may be cognizant of how unlikely this is, but they may depend on volunteers and donations to keep their dream alive and they know that if they aren’t rescuing the “animal in distress of the week” then they will lose their volunteers and donors to someone who is acting so irresponsibly.

One thing you can always count on is that the unexpected will happen.  A founder will become sick or die or just change their mind about how they want to spend their life.  A day like 9/11 will send the world as we know it into a three year tail spin.  A year in which there is not a month that goes by without a tsunami, earthquake, major health epidemic, war or a hurricane will happen and the giving public will be so greatly pressed upon for human needs that there will be little left over for the animals.  With global warming now finally being recognized as a planet changing reality we are only just beginning to see times of trouble…expensive trouble.

The following list of links go to stories about facilities that once housed big cats and failed.  In some cases they never were really sanctuaries, but they claimed to be and many people were fooled into supporting them.  In other cases they actually were sanctuaries and some of them even great ones but something happened and they either shut down or had to consider doing so.  When a big cat sanctuary closes there is no where for the great cats to go.  All of the decent sanctuaries are full and most of the rest continue to breed, sell and further exacerbate the exploitation. These are just a few sad examples of what happens when a big cat facility goes under.


For the list(S), follow the link above and be prepared to see some familiar and highly respected animal zoos and sanctuaries…Of course there are also a few bad apples as there are to any list created by Carole Lewis Baskin yet she forgets to include her own beloved Big Cat Rescue…So comical, entertaining and of course EDUCTIONAL as this demonstrates for you to consider the source of anything you read these days…Whether it be coming from a news broadcast or newspaper whose broadcasters and reporters CRIMINALLY TRESPASSED (yes they do and not held accountable even in the Texas courts, where they claim you are protected by the law from trespassers-Just put on a press badge, take your camera and notepad and go for the story-Texas Chapter 27 will protect you-HA! Just baffle the judge with BULLSHIT and his fear of the press-after all there’s that next election-you will get dismissed from suit-even the big companies such as Raycom and possibly London Broadcasting who should know better but what the heck-Judges are elected officials-so it’ll wash) on the property to get a story, to private websites and blogs especially if they have their hand out claiming rescue when the truth for most is it is not and possibly a creation of their own making (BCR-Baskin AND WBCR-Kozlowski) as a rescue and asking for donations. For some it’s simply a way to get new or more animal inventory as well as one more excuse to ask for one more donation…

One way to tell the truth from fiction is how much they claim they need in donations and the figures don’t compute…Better yet, go to the source and ask questions…BEST OF ALL…follow the link and post a comment asking why Big Cat Rescue is not on the list with the largest number of deaths in the country…DON’T BE BAFFLED BY THE BULLSHIT!!


They say don’t be fooled by someone’s glitz and glamour and I say don’t be fooled by the BULLSHIT!!!
