Serenity Springs Animal Welfare Act Complaint

June 23, 2015

Notorious roadside zoo Big Cats of Serenity Springs (BCSS) was been hit with a complaint from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and may soon face legal consequences for its long history of Animal Welfare Act citations, many of which were issued during inspections prompted by PETA complaints. The violations alleged in the federal complaint include failure to provide numerous visibly sick, underweight, and lame tigers with adequate veterinary care. Workers also allegedly failed to notice that a cougar was dead until a USDA inspector pointed out the animal’s stiff body covered with snow, and BCSS reportedly transported several 3-day-old, unweaned tigers to the notorious Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Park, where they died within two days of their arrival.
