Thats quite a story Isa but it does sound like you guys made the right decision by walking away. There are some battles that can be fought but the sad part is that the animals lose out by not having someone there looking out for their best interest. They are the real losers in the end. Most people dont realize that exotic animals cant be treated like house pets and their every day care outside of the wild is trememdous.

You are absolutely correct. These weren't house cats and by the time we left, the lions and tiger were in the 400-500 pound range. They were also beginning to test the limits of the field representatives - that is, trying to be the dominant one in the relationship. They had to quit taking them out shortly before we left. To this day, the whole thing tugs at my heart. I run in to one of the original owners now and again, and I still just want to bang on that dumb empty head of his...

Thanks Joz! But, he's so brainless, he probably wouldn't feel a thing! (Still, we can give it a shot!)
