Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act

Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act

An estimated 10,000 big cats are kept as pets and for profit in places like basements, backyards and roadside zoos throughout the U.S. today. In fact, the U.S. is thought to be home to more captive tigers than are found in the wild. Exact numbers are a mystery—nobody knows exactly how many dangerous big cats are being kept in private hands, under what conditions, and where.
