In the wake of yet another mauling at a private roadside zoo, dangerous incidents involving big cats continue to rise across the United States.  The Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act (H.R. 1998/S.1381), a Congressional bill initiated by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW - www.ifaw.org), would prohibit the private possession and breeding of tigers, lions and other big cats in the United States; and, according to a new poll released today by IFAW, 75 percent of voters across the country are in support of the bill.

Cats and dogs are two of the world’s most universal species, living side by side with people in hundreds of millions of homes and communities in every human society on this planet.

Yet, on every continent and in every culture, dogs and cats continue to be subject to cruel and inhumane treatment. And a growing body of research has shown that violence against animals is connected to violence against people.
