Zoo Wars~LIES-LIES-and more LIES, Endless LIES to Create Animal Bans
More people getting paid to write articles for Big Cat Rescue-The possibilities are endless-That special twist to in an attempt to get an experience of a lifetime banned-Sickening when e legislatures believe the lies being told buy a ruthless woman, Carole Baskin-CEO BCR, paying people to repeat her words or worse yet, writing the articles herself by another name…LIES-LIES and more LIES. There is no requirement for a tiger to be on concrete or in a cage the size of a postage stamp although many of the tigers at Big Cat Rescue are living in extremely small cages that do NOT meet regulations-NOT secured to the ground and it is my belief that because this ‘facility’ is built on an old landfill is loaded with PCBs which would explain the cancer and tumors for al the have died there…Where’s the USDA or FFW on that!?! Furthermore the cats drinking water is pumped in from the old retention pond -also contaminated!!!
I am familiar with “Jungle Safari” -Owned and run by one of the nicest guys you ever want to met, Robby Engesser, and does an excellent job with his cubs. Obviously the writer found NOTHING wrong so made an attack based on LIES from Baskin!!! The following article is nothing but a cruel joke as it’s contents are not based on truth and facts -This is unacceptable!!!
I am shocked and saddened to see that a man named Robert Engesser is traveling the country and setting up a roadside zoo full of exotic cats and cubs in various cities using the name “Jungle Safari.”
Last week they were in our town at Rantoul Plaza.
Unscrupulous breeders of exotic cats like Engesser travel the country displaying tiger cubs at fairs and malls and offering customers — for a fee of about $35 — the opportunity to pet the cubs and have their photos taken.
These breeders often promote their “pay to play with tiger cubs” scheme under the guise of providing consumers with education about big cats. But the truth is they are simply using these innocent young creatures to make money.
[Bloggers note-I guess she wants Robby to provide all that he does for free-Maybe the truth be known, she didn’t have or could afford the $35.00 for an experience of a lifetime!!]
Without knowing the facts, seeing children pet cute tiger cubs seems adorable and innocent. But according to Big Cat Rescue, an accredited sanctuary in Florida, in reality these cubs endure a miserable existence while they are on display and then are destined, in most cases, to a life sentence in deplorable conditions or are killed as part of the multi-million-dollar illegal trade in tiger parts.
[Bloggers note: According to FFW-Big Cat Rescue is NOT a Florida accredited sanctuary as previously reported on this blog. 2) The only deplorable existence than in a SCAM-tuary/SCUM-tuary like BCR as what Baskin describes is of her own facility. 3) OUTRIGHT LIE-“killed as part of the multi-million-dollar illegal trade in tiger parts”-non-existent although I can’t help but wonder what BASKIN does with all those tiger skins and skulls on the return from the taxidermy of more than 150 cats that HAVE DIED AT BIG CAT RESCUE largely due to cancer and tumors.]
If asked, these exhibitors usually tell patrons that the cubs will have a wonderful home once they are too big to have contact with the public, either at their facilities or elsewhere.
However, regulations allow any owner in the U.S. to keep a tiger in a concrete-floored, chain-link enclosure not much bigger than a parking space, often with nothing to do but walk in circles or stare out … for the rest of their lives.
[Bloggers note: One look at any enclosure demonstrates that this is not usually a requirement and the only small enclosures are usually found in places calling themselves ‘sanctuary’]
Enforcement of the rules that do exist is limited because there are not enough inspectors to adequately monitor the thousands of tigers owned by people licensed to exhibit animals. We treat criminals in prison far better than the way most owners end up treating captive tigers, whose only crime was being bred by a breeder/exhibitor to make money.
[Bloggers note: There are not there are not thousands of tigers un-regulated…Fact is over regulated]
People who are unaware of the facts surrounding this important issue innocently support the abuse by patronizing the cub displays. The cubs are adorable, and the exhibitors are skilled at telling their lies. But increasingly, people are becoming aware of the issue and the abuse. As the number of people who object to such displays grows, more and more venues are banning the displays, both for humane reasons and because it is good business not to offend the growing number of customers who do not want to see animals mistreated.
I want our town to be a forward-thinking one and ban these roadside zoos.
That was written by a complete IDIOT and unfortunately many people will actually believe this pack of lies-COMPLETE BULLSHIT an un-fortunately can led to the obvious…
This week Governor Andrew Cuomo signed new legislation that now makes it illegal for traveling fairs and attractions to allow people to come in contact with lions, tigers and other big cats. Fox News says wildlife advocates claim these baby tigers are often taken from their parents at a young age and neglected. The interactions with humans can be harmful to both people and the small animals. And then once the animals grow too old to be trusted with humans, they are discarded.
I have yet to see a tiger cub discarded especially when there is USDA/APHIS control on these animals with record reviews of where the animal go- Animals can not be exhibited without the owner having the required USDA/APHIS permit to exhibit-There is nothing illegal about having you pictured made with any big cat cub unless you live in New York State and this law goes beyond reason!!!
There’s NOTHING better than an adorable tiger cub, holding him and having your picture taken to remember the moment. Then you learn that tigers are going extinct in the wild and banned from ownership or restricted ownership in this country-Pictures most definitely do make a difference and extremely educational as you might not know or even care about the plight of this animal had you not decided t have your picture taken in the first place-Good going New York-Another dumb move for things that you really know nothing about!!!
Realizing that she will never be able to have this experience again-a jealous Carole Baskin~CEO Big Cat Rescue wants no one to have this special moment and privilege. She failed as a breeder and will never be able to touch another cub without the ridicule so she figures that you shouldn’t be able to either-Now no one in New York state will be able to touch ANY animal-Thanks Carole Baskin of Big Cat Rescue/Wild Life on Easy Street (BCR/WOES) for destroying the enjoyment, relationship and education with animals for people living in New York!!!
I am glad I have better things to do than destroy the lives and businesses of other people by creating obscure reasons for laws based on my hatred of both animals and people-By complaining about other people and missing out on the things I enjoy because I have created a life for myself that I hate. This is the worse kind of BULLY and LIAR feeding the Animal Rights Extremists-Terrorist Animal Gestopo to get it done.
Great day at the GW Exotic Animal Park-Thank you Joe Schreibvogel!!!
