Petition: Help Shut Down Facility That Housed a Severely Injured Tiger Cub

Petition: Help Shut Down Facility That Housed a Severely Injured Tiger Cub

A shocking case has emerged from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, revealing the rescue of an 8-month-old female tiger with multiple broken bones from a privately-owned facility.

The poor young tiger was diagnosed with 10 fractures and severe decalcification of her bones due to an unhealthy diet.

Given the condition of the tiger, it’s likely the tiger was rescued from a roadside zoo, which are notoriously difficult to regulate.

Sign the petition to demand the California Department of Fish and Wildlife investigate the privately-owned facility this poor animal came from and shut it down!

This is a distressing symbol of the dark side of exotic animal trade and ownership.

We demand an immediate and thorough investigation into the individual or facility responsible for the tiger’s injuries.

It is crucial that the responsible parties are identified and held accountable, ensuring justice for this tiger and preventing future cases of mistreatment.

This distressing situation serves as a stark reminder of the critical importance of enforcing the Big Cat Public Safety Act, intended to protect these magnificent animals from such neglect and abuse.

Despite being in effect since 2022, incidents like this tragically demonstrate that more needs to be done to ensure the safety and well-being of big cats in captivity.

Sign the petition to demand authorities seek justice for this young tiger and prevent future occurrences of such cruelty!
