The WSPA takes the word of Carole Baskin as fact. Why do organizations that claim to protect animals give special permissions on animal cruelty?

Dear Linda,

Thank you for your email about this situation. We sincerely understand your concerns and appreciate you sharing them with us.

Big Cat Rescue does rehabilitate injured or orphaned bobcats with the intent to release them back into the wild. Because of this, these cats must learn how to hunt and catch their own prey – if they didn’t, they would certainly die upon their release, and that is not something anyone wants. According to Carole Baskin at Big Cat Rescue, the only cats who are ever fed live prey are those destined to be returned to the wild. In the U.S., this is the only way to teach hunting skills to carnivores who are destined for release, and this is not something that WSPA disputes.

WSPA also understands the fact that predator cats who are unable to be released into the wild are still carnivores and need to eat meat. We do not have an issue with feeding these cats animals who have been killed humanely.

If you still take issue with Big Cat Rescue’s practices, we would encourage you to write to them directly to voice your concerns.

I hope this information is helpful and thank you for caring so deeply about animals.
