We need a nationwide law to stop big cats kept in private hands from endangering communities.
There are at least 10,000 big cats in private ownership. The animals are often kept in squalid conditions and dangerously close to residential areas.
IFAW is working with U.S. Reps. Howard ‘Buck’ McKeon (R-CA) and Loretta Sanchez (D-CA) to pass the Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act.
Please urge your U.S. Representative to co-sponsor the Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act today.
A quick note to your U.S. representative will help protect both people and big cats. We’ve prepared a template e-mail for you to send. We encourage you to personalize this copy to make it more effective. Please ensure that you are polite at all times.
