Welcome to the Born Free USA blog! The best place for regular, incisive, up-to-the-minute commentary on issues affecting wild animals in need, both in the USA and around the world. Updated several times a week, with input from a variety of our experts, you’ll find the Born Free USA website blog first with the perspective that counts.
So, to start as we mean to go on ...
I have to say I’m perplexed. The plight of animals in circuses, wild animals escaping from reputable zoos, private “pets” needlessly euthanized — incident after incident and yet, politically, the plight of animals in captivity seems to be almost invisible. Reform the Animal Welfare Act? Make the AZA standards mandatory? Prevent the keeping of exotic animals by private individuals? The silence is deafening.
Well, our job is to do something about it! So welcome to the new force for animals! With your help Born Free USA will push care for animals higher up the compassionate agenda.
Tune in again very soon.
