This petition is to end the suffering of the exotic cats and other animals at "Great Cats of Indiana Sanctuary and Rescue Facility". This site is nothing more than a roadside zoo. The USDA has filed a formal complaint in August 2007, with transgressions dating back as far as SIX YEARS ago (2002). Then a motion to go to hearing was filed in October 2007. Hopefully a petition from concerned animals lovers will persude Secretary Schaefer to take immediate action on this facility, have it shut down, and transport these animals to a cleaner, safer, actual animal sanctuary to live out the rest of their lives in peace.

We the undersigned are concerned about ending the suffering of the exotic animals located at "Great Cats of Indiana Sanctuary and Rescue Facility" in Idaville, IN. This site is operating under the guise of a rescue facility, but is nothing more than a roadside zoo.
We understand that the USDA has filed a formal complaint on this facility in August of 2007, with transgressions that date back six years to 2002. Then, a motion to go to hearing was filed in October 2007. It is time to finalize this process and give these animals a life they deserve in a cleaner, safer environment.
We ask that you move forward to revoke Robert Craig and Laura Proper's license to operate, and have this facility destroyed so that it cannot be operational as a roadside zoo again. We ask that the animals be placed in actual, legitimate animal sanctuaries so they may live out their lives in peace.
Thank you for taking immediate action to this cause.
