NEWSLINK: Will Congress Finally Step Up to Protect Big Cats?

Animal advocates are applauding members of Congress for taking action to protect big cats from cruelty, abuse and neglect by reintroducing a big bill that would make it illegal to keep them as pets in the U.S.

It’s currently estimated that there are more than 10,000 privately owned big cats in captivity across the nation. While some states have laws banning the private possession of big cats, others have weak or no laws in place at all, leaving big cats to suffer in any number of situations that can range from simply not meeting their needs to being downright abusive.
