Dear Friend,

Weak federal regulations that allow the public to pet, play with, pose with, and even swim with baby tigers, bear cubs, and/or primates endangers animals and the public. Once the animals grow too large, they are typically dumped and replaced with a new batch of babies.

This cycle of breeding, exploiting, then discarding baby animals fuels the pet trade by making unwanted animals available to people like the disturbed Zanesville, Ohio, man who, one year ago yesterday, released nearly 50 big cats, bears, and primates before taking his own life.

Please sign our petition today, and urge the U.S. Department of Agriculture to act quickly on our proposed changes to federal regulations that will put an end to the miserable practice of allowing the public to handle big cats, bears, and primates.

Thank you for all you do for animals.
