Big Cat Creates Controversy


PROTEST TONIGHT AT THE GREAT FESTIVAL OVER A TIGER AND OTHER WILD ANIMALS ON DISPLAY. ANIMAL-RIGHTS GROUPS SAY THE ANIMALS ARE FORCED TO ENDURE HARSH CONDITIONS, ALL FOR PEOPLE’S ENJOYMENT. RICK BOONE IS LIVE IN LODI FOR US WITH THEIR MESSAGE. Reporter: IT’S A STARK MESSAGE THAT PAUSE IS SENDING OUT, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT WHEN GREAT ORGANIZERS SAY IS A 4- YEAR-OLD TIGER NAMED MICHAELA, SHE’S NOT MEANT TO BE AN ATTRACTION HERE TO THE SPECTATORS THIS WEEKEND, BUT ORGANIZERS AND ALSO THOSE WHO ARE AGAINST THIS, AT THE PERFORMING ANIMAL WELFARE SOCIETY, SAY THAT THE EXTREME HEAT THAT’S HAPPENING OUT HERE IS TOO MUCH FOR ANY ANIMAL. THERE’S ABSOLUTELY NO REASON FOR SOMEBODY TO BE BREEDING TIGERS FOR A CARNIVAL. PAWS SAYS THE USDA AND SPATE STATE BOARDS THE REGULATE WALK ON THE WILD SIDE SAW A NUMBER OF CITATIONS DURING SITE VISITS AT THEIR BASE IN OREGON INCLUDING DENYING THEM FROM A CAPTIVE BREED WILDLIFE PERMIT. THERE PUTTING ANIMALS IN CAGES, FOR A LIFETIME, FOR SOMEBODY TO HAVE A FEW SECONDS OR A FEW MINUTES OF ENJOYMENT. Reporter: CBS13 FOUND THERE ARE NUMBER OF RULES EVERY SANCTUARY MUST FOLLOW, FROM ADEQUATE HOUSING, FOOD, AND PROPER FACILITIES. ALL CONCERNS FROM PAWS THAT GROUPS LIKE WALK ON THE WILD SIDE MAY NOT BE FOLLOWING. MOST OF THE ANIMALS WE HAVE OUR RESCUED ANIMALS. THEY HAVE COME FROM PRIVATE PARTIES, OR FROM PEOPLE THAT HAVE BOUGHT THEM, OFF THE BLACK MARKET. Reporter: NOW, SHE’S ON EDUCATIONAL TOURS WITH HER FRIENDS FROM THE SANCTUARY TRAVELING CITIES UP AND DOWN THE WEST COAST, AND LANDED HERE THIS WEEKEND AT LODI’S GREAT FEST. WE TAKE THEM OUT AND PRIMARILY FOR THE REASON TO EDUCATE PEOPLE SO THEY DO NOT GET IN A POSITION THAT THE OTHER PEOPLE GOT INTO. Reporter: WALK ON THE WILD SIDE INSISTS THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING WRONG IN ANY OF THE FEDERAL INSPECTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN DONE ON THEIR ORGANIZATION
