 Dear Ms. Linda:

The Investigators commented on the above complaints with the results of their inspection, which are summarized below.

BCR producing live stream internet feeds of native Florida wildlife under active wildlife rehabilitation, for public view:

The websites or live stream internet feeds included in the complaints received by Investigators Manson and Amerson either did not appear to be under the control of BCR, were not displaying native wildlife, were not public, or were not displaying an animal undergoing rehabilitation at the time of the Investigators’ report.

Feeding of live prey to wildlife under active wildlife rehabilitation:

Investigators Manson and Amerson reported that FWC command staff had consulted with the state attorney’s office,HillsboroughCountyand the State Attorney, and had declined to file any formal charges for animal cruelty in response to the above complaint, stating that BCR’S activity at the time was not in violation of the animal cruelty laws in Florida Statutes.

We appreciate your concerns regarding this matter. If you have any questions, please call Investigator Jason Marlow or Captain Tom Haworth at (850) 488-6253, or write to him at Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Division of Law Enforcement, Captive Wildlife Office,620 South Meridian Street,Tallahassee,Florida32399-1600.
