Plus Big Cats Legislation, Trap Victim Relief
FRONT LINES: Roberts Decries Lion Meat Trend
On Friday, Born Free USA Executive Vice President Adam M. Roberts appeared on "Inside Edition" in a segment about lion meat. Incredibly, and very unfortunately, the "king of the jungle" — a species in precipitous decline — is appearing on restaurant menus from California to Florida in the form of burgers, tacos and other culinary "adventures." Watch Roberts tell "Inside Edition" why lion meat is a bad idea, and learn more about the issue on our Lions and Lion Meat webpages. Please support our efforts to protect lions by making a generous donation today.

ACT: Speak Out for Big Cats and Public Safety
Also last week, the Big Cats and Public Safety Act (H.R. 1998) was reintroduced in Congress by Reps. Howard “Buck” McKeon (R-CA) and Loretta Sanchez (D-CA). Born Free USA is on the front lines working to advance this important legislation. The bill would severely restrict big cat ownership and exhibition throughout the United States, and improve animal welfare and public safety. Please write or call your congressional representative today in support of the Big Cats and Public Safety Act.
