A new piece of evidence showcasing the lengths Big Cat Rescue or one of their devoted supporters will sink to just so they can undermine competitors in the zoological world was recently brought to our attention. Anybody that owns a facility that exhibits exotic cats and has previously been a target of Big Cat Rescue’s crusade to “end the trade” should pay attention.
When Big Cat Rescue’s credibility comes under fire they occasionally trot out their successful lawsuit against a competitor that infringed on their trademark and copyrighted property. For those of us that aren’t so easily impressed, it’s woefully obvious that they only do that to make themselves appear more effective than they actually are. So you can understand why I find entertainment in seeing Big Cat Rescue infringing on The Walt Disney Company’s intellectual property in a way that doesn’t seem compliant with fair use.
In this technology driven day and age where people from all walks of life and across the globe can communicate and connect through social media, the exchanging of ideas and information has never been so readily accessible.

If you’re a big supporter of zoos then maybe you should reconsider supporting organizations whose fanatical ideology seeks to shut them all down. One such organization supporters of zoos should avoid like the plague is Big Cat Rescue, a roadside zoo located in Tampa, Florida.
Big Cat Rescue finally responded to our video pertaining to one of their staff members committing what many people, including Carole Baskin, would view as animal abuse. In typical Big Cat Rescue fashion, they made excuses and tried shifting the attention away from themselves instead of actually addressing the problem at hand. Their lack of answers shouldn't come as a surprise for our readers.
Two days ago we uploaded a video we created in a PETA-esque style onto our Youtube and Facebook pages. We believe the video perfectly showcases the blatant hypocrisy emanating from Big Cat Rescue while also possibly revealing what many animal rights activists would consider animal abuse. If Big Cat Rescue is willing to publicly post one of their staff members committing what many would view as animal abuse on a Facebook livestream, then what are they doing behind the scenes when the cameras aren’t rolling? We will break down the video for better clarification and will provide more details left out.
