ZOO WARS~ ALERT Citrus Park in Tampa, Florida~Big Cat Rescue INTENTIONALY Put the Public at Risk AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN!!!

There’s no excuse for intentionally putting the public at risk and no excuse for FWC for not issuing a violation for it. It appears some very BIG pay-offs going on putting both the public at risk and the people who work there.  Not even bringing up the fact that should an incident have happened just how stupid that makes FWC look. I can just hear Baskin now putting the blame on FWC for lack of enforcement and the need to crack down on irresponsible owners but wait, that would include themselves-something BCR doesn’t do.

Watch this informative video!!!

NEVER have I witnessed a facility purposely taking such a risk including a risk for right to ownership -Do Carole and Howard Baskin think themselves above the law?!? Above everyone’s right to feel safe in there homes and where they shop?!? This isn’t in the middle of no where or the outskirts of town. BCR is right there in the middle of everything located near businesses and neighbors directly next door. Being GFAS does not mean that Carole Baskin is some sort of expert on Big Cats nor is anyone working there or has anyone from BCR been truthful to the public with their response.

Those cats are not arthritic-Show me the vet records for that on each and every cat that she has already placed illegally in that enclosure!!! As a matter of fact, after that enclosure flooded, Simba, a spotted leopard, was left in that enclosure after it flooded, even though was receiving medication!!!

Drainage is required by the USDA-There is very little drainage at BCR and what run-off there is, is coming from a property that was once used as a landfill with burrow pit and likely contaminated with PCBs and the build-up of PCBs accumulating at the ground’s surface. Neither FWC or USDA have taken issue over the property although, BCR has the highest death rate in the country for any facility of it’s type in the country for tumors, cancer and kidney failure or listed as euthanized in the inventory records.

All of this has been reported to both FWC and the USDA-or will these agencies that were created for Animal Welfare and Public Safety continue to shelter this place?!? Just what does it take for a crack down when it’s done on others for far fewer violations, by the very same agencies.

You bet I suspect pay-offs!!! While no other owner would ever get away with displaying such piss poor husbandry skills, rusty, shabby cages with trees overhead and demonstrating poor vet care follow up, thus less if they used an unapproved cage for housing big cats; they would have been cited and likely going to court for the numerous violations, possible fines and probable reason for arrest and jail time, with animals likely confiscated but NOT at Big Cat Rescue. -WHY!?!

Get Involved and ask these questions yourself!!!

  1. These acts are performed by someone who fights against our rights and has some kind of undue influence to get rules and laws passed to hurt our rights. Even her own misconduct provokes the same rule-making agencies.

    • Watch for the good news!!! She’s TRYING to get laws passed against private ownership-causes problems but she and ALDF have taken a hit with everyone that hey have attempted!!! PROTECTED Constitutional Rights!!! -B

  2. The 2% gets away with it again

    • More like the 1% that appears to be making big pay-offs and lists everything bad she can find-even in other countries that are no of concern to US citizens that have PROTECTED Constitutional Rights and nothing about ALL the lies and her own violations!!! You will find them here or learn about the suspected pay-offs…Joined with ALDF and taken a hit every time-Too bad it’s not costing her a dime to do all this and using donated money for animal care-yet we, the tax payer have to pay for all of it and the individuals she targets!!! If we were to ban anything, it should be her complaints and attempts to ban these animals!!! -B

  3. Disgusting how this woman literally “gets away with murder ” !
