ZOO WARS~Sanctuaries and FAKE-RESCUERS Should Take Note of This~This Representative of How it’s Done!!!
Rescuers and FAKE sanctuaries make their money off the destruction of other private animal owners and claim a rescue without looking further into a situation-Rescue was never needed in the first place or to rehome a single animal…All to often, they to file a complaint so they can then go and claim rescue to what never was and receiving some animals for free and making money of it on the Internet-Guess Kozlowski figured after 4-1/2 years I’d just forget about one the most horrible life altering experiences of my life-Will never happen!!! I will plague his bastard until he admits what he did and returns the animals he stole-the ones still alive that is…and in the same condition he received them in!!! It wasn’t a rescue!!!
The following is first hand information of a claim of rescue and NOT helping private owners…Nothing more than a roadside zoo with his pet animals and A FAKE claim of rescue…Example of How NOT to do it -True rescue is helping others-
Such is the case of Jeff Kozlowski~CEO Wisconsin Big Cat Rescue making the first call of complaint about the ‘sound’ of animals all the way from Wisconsin -Interesting that there is no noise ordinance in the area or ordinance forbidding those ‘types’ of animals-no extenuating circumstance can exist when they take 4 days to get their warrant. This fucking idiot never asked a single question directly to the owner before doing so or after the damage he had inflicted on another private owner. And you’d think, having experienced problems of his own in his community; he would go out of his way to look into it further -especially since there wasn’t any noise to complaint about in the first place and the only thing he could come up with to file a complaint against a private owner…like I said, FUCKING IDIOT!!! However, what else would anyone expect from a CONVICTED FELON (of 19 years that he will quickly point out-HA! Once a convicted felon-always a convicted felon or robbing a bank!!!Just HOW did he get a USDA permit for big cats and a 501-c-3 IRS clearance?!?) who continues to SCAM his way thru life and con people for donations!!! Who has never gone to the aid for someone else who needed help-His way of doing things is to do to others what’s been done to himself…I even have that documented-His words stated to me recently!!!

Oh my, will one of these FAKE rescuers ever admit they were wrong and return the animals-Kozlowski stated that he would shortly after doing his ‘good-deed’ so where are the animals…oh yeah, still in Wisconsin and receiving ‘hand-me-downs’ after one of his original PETS that he rescued from himself, gets a new boomer ball-Magic has to wait years to get one that’s old and worn out…Gee wasn’t that nice of him to share that on FB!?!-BULLSHIT Kozlowski!!!
The following is about a private owner receiving needed help from other private owners and previous private owners and volunteers stepping up plate to help another who is required by law (discriminatory law I might add) to meet AZA standards…This is a Random Act of Kindness unknown to FAKE rescuers like Jeff Kozlowski!!!
BRAVO USZA for stepping up to the plate and a great job done!!!
Other big cat owners come to aid of Yogie and Friends
Yogie and Friends has a Sept. 3 court date to answer a LDWF citation issued in July. However, a restraining order is in place and a separate civil suit. is pending in a Baton Rouge courtroom.
FRIERSON – Yogie and Friends Exotic Cat Sanctuary received some unexpected help this week in making recommended upgrades to the homes and holding areas of the facility’s nine large cats.
Three men who own their own exotic cats – and volunteers accompanying them – gave of their time for up to three days for a blitz build of new cinderblock dens, erecting new fencing and performing general cosmetic improvements.
But there’s still some work to complete so Executive Director Jenny Senier is putting out the call again for local help. She said the tasks don’t require heavy lifting, such as screwing boards to a privacy fence frame, adding pre-cut chain link fencing, caulking the dens and general cleanup of the property.
Yogie and Friends is under the gun to show progress on a list of deficiencies cited by Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries during a July inspection. LDWF seized – on paper only – the big cats and cited Senior for having the animals without a permit.
A court date is set for Sept. 3 in DeSoto District Court. A separate civil lawsuit has been filed in East Baton Rouge Parish District Court.
The U.S. Zoological Association included Yogie and Friends in its lawsuit against the state. USZA claims requiring the sanctuary to join the non-profit American Zoo and Aquarium Association in order to be exempt from 2006 law banning private ownership of exotic animals is discrimination, said President Doug Terranova, of Kaufman, Texas, who lent his expertise this week to Senior and Tim Mills, Yogie’s founder and board member.
Additionally, Yogie and Friends obtained a restraining order against LWDF, good through Sept. 15, prohibiting agents from further enforcement.
“This is one of the things we do; go out and help other people like these nice people here,” Terranova said. “We see this all of the time, requiring facilities to be a member of AZA. The state of Louisiana has exempted AZA from their law but a USDA license is still required. And they have one.”
“A government cannot make you join a non-profit,” said Joe Schreibvogel, the owner and trainer of big cats in Oklahoma. “By saying you are exempt by joining AZA gives them a monopoly.”
Yogie & Friends has been unsuccessful in obtaining a permit from LDWF except for the bobcat and servals. The tigers, lions and leopard are licensed through the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which had considered the facility a Class C exhibitor in good standing since its beginning in 2000.
But since the LDWF citation was issued, USDA has made repeat visits to the site, Senier said.
“We take what they say seriously but we were just not able to get the help,” Senier said.
Rather than see Yogie and Friends lose its aging big cats to an out-of-state facility, Schreibvogel chose to round up a crew and come to their aid. He’s done this before, he said, helping to rebuild a zoo in Missouri in three days.
For example, Schreibvogel said LDWF wants doors on the den houses so the cats can be locked in during inclement weather. He said the cats are smart enough to get out of the bad weather on their own. Each pen already has a separate, secure catch area where the cats are moved when their areas need to be cleaned.
A couple of dens that were constructed prior to July were deemed unacceptable by LDWF. Agents want the cats to be able to rest comfortably at any angle, rather than the cozy situation Senier and Mills chose to provide knowing the preference of cats to be in close quarters.
“That’s putting human emotion on animals,” Terranova said of the state’s criticism of the first dens. However, all were enlarged by the volunteers this week to meet LDWF requirements.
Terranova, Schreibvogel and Michael Sandlin, the owner of Tony the Truck Stop Tiger in Grosse Tete who also volunteered this week along with a crew he brought, all have had their run-ins with state government, USDA and animal activities. So they’ve formed an informal advisory board to give Senier and Mills guidance in the future and resources that can be tapped into when needed.
They’ve already given veterinary recommendations, feeding tips and suggestions on providing additional ramps and structures inside each cat’s pen for activity and exercise.
“I wish we had known these guys four years ago. They’ve been a godsend. A lot of things we just didn’t know. But we’re committed to getting it done for the cats,” Senier said.
