-- Born To Be Wild And Free by Ira Fischer has been published by Big Cat Rescue - the largest accredited sanctuary in the United States dedicated entirely to abused and abandoned big cats. The article is an expose into the secretive world of individuals that harbor exotic cats - - such as lions and tigers - - as pets. The article aims to increase awareness of the suffering and abuse endured by wildcats as a result of being held in captivity. It spotlights the implications of captivity on the welfare of these animals and the public safety issues resulting from raising some of the world’s most dangerous animals as pets. The article notes that repeated tragedies between humans and captive big cats underscore the need for passage of the Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act, introduced in the House of Representatives by Representative Buck McKeon (R-CA).
