Today, a volunteer at the Barry R. Kirshner Wildlife Foundation had to be hospitalized as the result of injuries inflicted by a leopard in the animal’s enclosure. Below, please find a statement from PETA Foundation Associate Director of Captive Animal Law Enforcement Debbie Metzler:

This disaster shows exactly why no reputable animal-care facility would ever let its volunteers enter an enclosure with a big cat. PETA hopes the public will now see this so-called “wildlife foundation” for the sham sanctuary that it is—an outfit with a history of Tiger King–style cub petting, a previous penalty for endangering the public, and a volunteer’s blood on its hands.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to use for entertainment”—opposes speciesism, which is a human-supremacist worldview. Please let me know if you have any questions or if there’s any further information that I can provide.
