DELRAY BEACH, Fla. - Sept. 15, 2013 - PRLog -- Big Cats Are Not Pets 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 discusses the Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act (S. 1381) recently re-introduced into the U.S. Senate by Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT).  The Bill is aimed at prohibiting private ownership and breeding of dangerous exotic wildcats such as lions and tigers.

Notably, it has been estimated that upwards of 10,000 big cats like lions, tigers and cougars are held captive in private hands in the U.S. As the article notes, these animals oftentimes suffer from severe physiological and psychological health defects due to their captivity. As a result of a myriad of state and local laws that govern the harboring of exotic cats, it is difficult to enforce public safety and to protect the welfare of these animals.

The writer argues that that a comprehensive federal ban is needed to address this nationwide problem, which too often spells disaster for humans and almost always results in a lifetime of misery for the innocent victims of the bizarre American subculture that callously disregards the laws of nature for their own self-aggrandizement. The article concludes that repeated tragedies between humans and captive big cats underscore that these apex predators are simply not suitable as pets.
