Stormy - (Deceased Asian Leopard)
Stormy and his sister Breezy are believed to have been purchased illegally from Henry Tramel of North Carolina on 3-7-94. Carole lists these leopards as 'donated', probably because it was illegal to sell them across state lines, but nobody gives away 2 1/2 month old leopard cubs. Carole was not properly licensed for leopards and the cubs were confiscated by Florida Fish and Game and given to Vernon Yates, initiating many years of slander against Vernon which continues to this day. Unless you believe that you "rescue" cats illegally, these two cats, Stormy and Breezy, were not rescues.
