These days it seems like just about any innocent interaction between people and animals is immediately condemned by proponents of the fanatical animal rights ideology. Their incessant outrage over the most seemingly benign things is annoying, but it does provide us with opportunities to prove how absurd their arguments are.
Each time a “sanctuary” operating in the United States “rescues” a cat from the near extinct private owner of big cats or a poorly managed zoo, animal rights organizations are quick to utilize the increasingly rare situation by ranting about how there are too many exotic cats in the United States. They’ll usually accompany that baseless claim using grossly exaggerated estimates of the number of tigers residing in this country. So why are they choosing to further exacerbate the alleged problem by importing even more exotic cats?
In a live stream posted on February 28th, the CEO of Big Cat Rescue, Carole Baskin, announced that she was contacted by a wildlife rehabilitation center to take in two bobcats set to be released back into the wild and a serval.
Last Friday Big Cat Rescue conducted an experiment on some of their more slightly domesticated feline residents. The experiment, if you can even call it one, was aimed at determining whether their small collection of Savannah cats “miss or want to be petted”.
Not too long ago we were contacted by an individual that was allegedly sent a cease and desist letter from Big Cat Rescue back in 2011. The individual has chosen to remain anonymous to avoid the possibility of incurring legal expenses.
Over the years Big Cat Rescue seems to have gotten more desperate in their need of adding cats to their once large and exotic collection. That explains why they always appear eager to jump at the chance of obtaining a new cat when the opportunity presents itself. The two cats added to Big Cat Rescue’s dwindling collection today serve as yet another crucial plug in their slowly sinking boat.
