On Christmas Day, the same day one boy was killed by an escaped tiger in California and two others were mauled, another tiger was found shot to death alongside an apartment complex in Dallas. Tigers do not belong in backyard cages. Please support the creation of a state bill such as the federal Haley’s Act (HR 1947) to end the breeding of big cats outside of the internationally sanctioned Species Survival Plans administered by accredited zoos.
This tragedy would never have happened if Congress had made Haley’s Act a priority when it was first introduced two years ago. Please make it your priority to do something at a state level this year.
