A Roaring Shame: Notorious Florida Zoo Breeds Tiger Tragedy

(WILDLIFE) At Dade City’s Wild Things (DCWT), a 22-acre zoo outside of Tampa, there are over 300 animals, including jaguars, lions, bears, macaques, and more. But the roadside zoo is perhaps best-known for it's tiger cubs used for senseless photo-ops and risky swim sessions, which have ignited a legal showdown between PETA as well as multiple state and federal agencies. While PETA and the U.S. Department of Agriculture allege the zoo of violating the Endangered Species Act and the Animal Welfare Act over its handling of the tigers,  Florida’s Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is also accusing the zoo of accepting donations while not registered as a nonprofit. To top things off, DCWT owner Randy Stearns is also facing criminal charges for six counts of sexual misconduct with a child. Not only does DCWT prematurely tear cubs away from their mothers and force them into stressful human encounters for profit, but their blatant negligence and illegitimacy is also contributing to a captive tiger overpopulation crisis. Read on to learn more about DCWT's questionable past and current legal battles, and see how to take action against DCWT and similar organizations. -- Global Animal
