This is an urgent call to action! During August 2015, backyard breeder Robert Mullen of Orlando Florida exhibited his tigers and other exotic animals at the Missouri State Fair. According to many in attendance it was a heartbreaking example of animal cruelty. The news and social media reports have shocked the nation.
Mullen's tigers and Pumas are severely emaciated and clearly undernourished.
Please sign and share to assure that the tigers, mountain lions and other exotics in Mr. Mullen's possesion are investigated, removed and transferred to an accredited sanctuary as soon as possible. Act now please before it is too late.
The images of emaciated tigers and other exotics performing at the Missouri State Fair are heart-breaking. Please investigate the animals in the possession of Robert Mullen, the owner of PM Productions Entertainment of Orlando FLorida, and their traveling show "Amazing Rainforest Experience".
Due to their appearance, it seems likely they have been malnourished. If that is the case, please sieze the animals immediately and seek out an accredited sanctuary for their placement.

Thank you to everyone around the world who has signed to stop these horrific treatment of these noble animals. Care2 and myself have reached out to the media and I've contacted the USDA. Please realize that we have a LONG ROAD AHEAD of us because the USDA moves excruciatingly slow on these matters. Please support the Big Cat Safety Act if you live in the USA. Contact your congress person and let them know that exotic animal abuse is unacceptable.
