Tigers Weren’t Forced to Perform on the Vegas Strip This Time

After learning of magician Jay Owenhouse’s absurd plans to cage three tigers in a parking lot near a busy airport on the South Las Vegas Strip for six months, more than 100,000 PETA supporters urged Triple Five not to allow the cruel acts on its property and called on Owenhouse to make tigers disappear from his show. Now, we’re thrilled to report that the property where the magic show was slated to take place has been sold and Owenhouse never forced the tigers to perform there! Keep victories coming for tigers exploited for photo ops, forced to perform in circuses, and languishing in roadside zoos by signing our action alert.
