Complaint to FWC Inspector General:

Attention: Mike Troelstrup, Inspector General,

I would like to file a complaint on the FWC staff for not properly investigating complaints sent to them regarding BCR Tampa. FWC staff also continually ignores requests for updates/case numbers on Big Cat Rescue Tampa complaints.

The videos referenced in the following complaint (and the complaints prior are videos that FWC is claiming are not under control of BCR but In Fact are under control of BCR Tampa, and copyrighted. Also the websites noted are – In Fact also under the control of BCR Tampa. Please see the email below from Howard Baskin to myself:
