Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is another opportunity to make your voice heard. Progressive Secretary is “Activism Made Easy.”

Our letter supports campaigns by the World Wildlife Fund, the Association of Zoos & Aquariums, the Animal Legal Defense Fund, and other organizations. The bill will strengthen existing law to prohibit the possession of tigers, lions, and other big cat species except by qualified entities and place restrictions on public contact with these species.

We will send your email messages to your Senators. The House passed the bill on July 29, 2022,  278 - 134. Click here for the vote, Roll no. 415.

Controls on the private ownership of exotic animals like big cats are vital for public safety and animal welfare. Individual ownership has resulted in human injuries and deaths and horrendous living conditions for the cats.

The “Big Cat Public Safety Act” bans individuals from breeding large exotic cats. It doesn’t require current private owners to surrender their animals. However, those owners must register with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

This bill will aid law enforcement agencies in identifying abuse and disrupting illegal breeding and trade operations. It will protect the animals from often dreadful living conditions.

Please vote “Yea” when the “Big Cat Public Safety Act” comes to the Senate floor.

Sincerely,

Kathie Turner, Executive Director
