MEOW! My name is June Buggie and I have something to say.
On March 6th, an intern named Dianna Hanson was killed by a lion named Cous Cous while she cleaned his cage.
Cous Cous was 4 years old, and he was an animal raised in captivity. He was “owned” by a “sanctuary” that was actually a breeding facility for animals.
Why on earth are people breeding exotic animals in captivity? And why are states allowing these people to have tax-exempt status to do so?
Here is a video response from Big Cat Rescue regarding the incident that killed this intern. I encourage you to watch the entire 6 minute presentation.
And if you still don’t believe that humans are foolish when it comes to big cats, read some of the comments under the video on Youtube.
Oh, I have my work cut out for me with your species!
