I feel that if they were keeping them correctly or were in danger then that would be fine. Actress, Tippi Hedren, runs a big cat sanctuary for big cats that have been poorly treated or rescued, and the horror stories were just unbelievable. A panther being locked in a cupboard when it got too big etc.

I think if someone is keeping a big cat in their back garden for this reason then it's just an excuse to have one. Unless the garden is huge and the animal has to be cared for by humans because it can't go back into the wild. There are so many different cases - but in general I don't see how many ppl can justify keeping them unless it's truly for the animals well being.

I worked with the Performing Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) in Galt, CA. I was able to help from a different perspective, as a press card carrying journalist. I have seen the horror these animals had gone through until Pat brought them into her care. I had the privilege of being in San Andreas, CA for the opening of the ARK2000. More than once I left Pat�s side trying to hide my tears. What a remarkable organization. If you haven�t heard of the ARK 2000 take a look smile Hundreds of acres and state of the art elephant barns (African and Asian)and a Tiger habitat. Also, the Amanda Blake Memorial Wildlife Refuge in Herald, CA. Amanda was instrumental in PAWS. We will all miss her greatly.

They certainly do:) You can see a picture of it on their website. It is in the elephant barn.

I was thrilled to watch that project from beginning to end. The area is beautiful too. We had a lot of Eagle Scouts do their projects at PAWS that was pretty niffy too.

Welcome Calla to the Exotic Pets Forum. It is good to see you again. In answer to your comment if monkeys are just monkeys then we are just humans. In my mind we are no better if not worst. We kill for the thrill of it. We put our young in garbage dumpsters.

"Just a monkey" - well I think that about sums up your attitude towards animals then. If it's just a monkey, no-one should want one as a pet should they?
