Urgent Action for Louisiana’s Animals!
Next week, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries will consider positive new amendments to its regulations governing the possession of big exotic cats, non-human primates, bears, wolves, and other dangerous wild animals.
These amendments will close a loophole that might otherwise enable unscrupulous exhibitors to obtain an exemption from the state’s restrictions on private possession of dangerous species. They also will allow for the Department to make key, unannounced inspections at facilities that house dangerous wild animals. While ALDF continues to seek justice and freedom for Tony the tiger, the welfare of other captive wild and exotic animals will remain at risk unless these important regulatory changes are made.
We need your help today to make sure that the Department does the right thing and adopts these critical changes!

If you live in Louisiana, please also join ALDF attorneys and attend next week’s hearing to speak up in support of these proposed amendments. Those who profit off of the cruel exploitation of wild and exotic animals have mobilized to oppose these important changes, so it’s critical that we have as many supporters as possible at the hearing to make our voices heard!
