THANKS: Ballclub Donates $5,000 to Born Free
Baseball pitching legend and Texas Rangers co-owner Nolan Ryan once spoke about having once been an "ambassador" for the snow monkeys who were living in what is now the Born Free USA Primate Sanctuary. His deadpan recitation of what happened back in the 1990s became a viral hit online, attracting so much attention that the Rangers' July 1 home game this season was declared "Nolan Ryan Snow Monkey Day" at the Arlington ballpark. Late last month, Ryan himself presented Born Free USA with a $5,000 donation. Thank you, Nolan Ryan and the Texas Rangers!

WEIGH IN: Zoo's Visitors Interact with Tiger Cub
A private zoo in Dade City, FL, is allowing visitors to swim and cuddle with a 6-week-old Siberian tiger cub. This tourist attraction, which costs $200 for a half-hour, was profiled this week on ABC's "Good Morning America." Born Free USA's executive vice president, Adam Roberts, was interviewed for the segment. Please watch the clip and post a comment showing how strongly you feel that tigers should not be commercially exploited in captivity.
