We Demand Justice for Tiger Killer!

Ninety dead tigers, including 58 cubs discovered in freezers, were found dead at the home of an animal rescuer.

John Weinhart, who runs Tiger Rescue was arrested Tuesday for investigation of animal cruelty.

I nvestigators found 11 tiger and leopard cubs crawling about the attic of Weinhart's home. There were two small alligators in the bathtub and two starving tigers on the porch, officials said.

Thirty dead adult tigers, including some with their legs tied together, were found in a yard outside the home.

Weinhart, who is licensed by the state to keep tigers and other big cats, had already been scheduled to stand trial next month in San Bernardino County on 10 misdemeanor charges stemming from what prosecutors say was improper care of tigers at Tiger Rescue.

The state Department of Fish and Game removed 10 tiger cubs from Tiger Rescue in November, saying the sanctuary in Colton didn't have the proper permits for the cubs and the agency was concerned about their welfare.

SIGN this petition and urge the San Bernadino District Attorney to prosecute Mr. Weinhart and Accomplices to the FULL EXTENT OF THE LAW. SIGN NOW. Bring the Tiger killer to justice!

District Attorney Michael A. Ramos,

Please pursue the full extent of the law in the prosecution of MR. Weinhart --
Mr. Weinhart should be brought to justice! When you have the community's trust and
the care of innocent animals on your hands, it is evil to betray that trust. Such
betrayal should be punished and punished severely.

Sincerely,
The Undersigned.
