After years of receiving citations and fines from state and federal wildlife officials, the owner of the Horseshoe Creek Wildlife Sanctuary, for big cats, bears, and other exotic animals has decided to close it. He expected the USDA to revoke his exhibitor's license in the next several days but chose to close the sanctuary's gates early. Born Free USA united with Animal Protection Institute aims to reduce the suffering of captive exotic animals. See our online report, "A Life Sentence."
