USDA 3rd Comment Period on Cub Handling

14h ago
SOURCE  

Description

Please tell USDA why you believe it is cruel to allow cub handling for big cat of any age here: TigerRescue.com or the long URL is https://www.regulations.gov/document?D=APHIS-2012-0107-15341 From now till Aug 31, 2016 the USDA is asking for public comment on what the rules should be regarding cub handling. Our position is that no cubs should be handled at all. Period. If you don't know why, please read BigCatRescue.org/cubs It's appalling to read some of the comments because the people who do take the time to speak up in these public comment sessions are the bad guys who use cubs to make money. One guy named Pawley, who has 40 years of working with major zoos suggested that any kind of cub can be used until they get their baby teeth and then they should be euthanized. He is the kind of person that USDA thinks represents the norm. He isn't and USDA needs to know that people who actually work with big cats do not think they should be used as pay to play props. It's not mandatory, but it's one of the most important things you can do to protect big cats, so please go to TigerRescue.com and hit the Comment Now button to tell USDA that you are opposed to using cubs of any age for public handling.
