Tiger by the Tail

CBS This Morning broke news of another HSUS undercover investigation―this one focusing on perhaps the largest private owner of tigers in the nation, GW Exotic Animal Park in central Oklahoma. The facility may have as many as 200 tigers, and according to its owner, it has more than 1,000 other animals.

It is not a professionally run facility, it operates without legitimate accreditation or the necessary technical staff, and broadly speaking, it is a facility that could spawn a terrible tragedy―for the animals and the residents of the surrounding community. It is a mix of a roadside menagerie and a petting zoo, masquerading as a rescue operation and a conservation center. If something goes wrong here, it could be five times worse than what happened last fall in Zanesville, Ohio.

Don’t miss the video that appears with the full blog post.  This is some chilling stuff.
