Another lie by Big Cat Rescue? Does that surprise you? It shouldn't since they're not exactly known for telling the truth. The lie this time occurred on October 8th and pertains to leopards being housed inside an enclosure they could possibly escape from. Interested?
Back in October, Big Cat Rescue was issued a warning by Florida Fish & Wildlife for housing leopards in an enclosure without a roof. Big Cat Rescue published a response to the warning on their website and stated they didn't know about the rule requiring leopards to be housed in roofed enclosures.
Below is a portion of Big Cat Rescue's statement that was written by Howard Baskin, Carole Baskin's husband, (emphasis added):
Big Cat Rescue awfully good at playing dumb, but then again they're likely not playing. I happen to have a copy of an old Wildlife On Easy Street newsletter that completely contradicts what Howard Baskin said.
When Big Cat Rescue was operating as Wildlife On Easy Street, they used to publish their quarterly newsletter called "Cat Tales" which was written by Jamie Veronica, daughter of the CEO of Big Cat Rescue. Below is a copy of the "Cat Tales" newsletter that catches them in a lie.
So there we have it readers. Big Cat Rescue knew about the rule that has been in affect for over 10 years. They just chose to ignore it. Will the lies ever stop?
