After finding out that a traveling Tiger show called "Nerger's Tigers" was preforming at the local Martin County Fair in my town I was deeply saddened as I researched more about this group and others like it. I went to the Fair and was appalled by what I saw. There were small metal cages in which tigers paced back and forth, and then those tigers were also made to preform as "entertainment".
Big Cat species being forced to travel across the State in very confined spaces while being used for "entertainment" is a cruel and outdated practice. These beautiful creatures are not meant to jump through flaming hoops and be kept in confined spaces. There are plenty of other forms of entertainment that do NOT involve exploiting an endangered species.
Please sign this petition to demand that the Florida Federation of Fairs and Livestock Shows STOP allowing these cruel and abusive shows to be held at their fairs across the state of Florida.
