Tigers, Other Big Cats Suffer in Captivity

Published 06/20/12

Throughout the world, countless thousands of tigers and other big cats are kept in appalling conditions in zoos, circuses and private ownership. Even in modern zoos tigers, lions and other big cats repeatedly pace, frustrated because their hunting and territorial instincts are denied.

Cats often breed well in captivity, but it is extremely difficult to return a captive-bred big cat to the wild and this practically never happens.

With the help of supporters, Born Free rescues tigers, leopards and lions from lives of misery in Africa and Europe, raising awareness and providing lifetime care in spacious natural habitat sanctuaries in Africa and India.
