The owner isn't an idiot. He knew what was happening with his health; he asked for help and he's getting it. I didn't read anywhere in the article that they were in failing health. As a matter of fact, it said they were all healthy. Why wait so long to help. You only live an hour away. Right?

If you want to help you might try contacting Turpentine Creek they are the ones trying to relocate all these animals to their sanctuary . Its a huge rescue and needs to be done fast the hardest mission is going to be to raise the rest of the funds to get them all out of there. If you want to read about the conditions of Betty Youngs place read this article http://www.turpentinecreek.org/index.php/news-desk/animal-rescues/rts-rescue

This is why people who house these should be required to have some kind of insurance.

Wish I could help more. This is a good example of why we need stronger laws for private facilities and guaranteed care for the lifetime of the animals if the owner can no longer take care of them.

Still find this excessive behavior from people to keep animals like this as if they were pets. Sure hope some zoo can help for this is absurd. Hope most of all that the government will make an end to this sort of situation. I mostly feel for these imprisoned wild origin.

Big cats, especially Tigers, need our help!

We can only hope that we will be able to continue to donate to these charities after this government gets through with us. These folks (and the animals for which they care) rely solely on private donations and don't get a dime from the government, so we need to be there for them. Please continue to care for these beautiful cats!
