Leonardo DiCaprio is continuing his fight against private big cat owners.
Warning about the Zanesville tragedy, Leo is urging people to take a stance against the dangers of privately owning lions and tigers and other unconventional animals.
The actor has taken to Twitter and Facebook to get his message out.
He states on Facebook:
Tigers, lions and cougars are kept as pets in the U.S. in alarming numbers…often leading to mistreatment and cruelty towards the animals themselves, but also diminishing big cat conservation around the world
Let’s prevent another Zanesville, Ohio tragic incident from happening again and take action to ban private ownership of big cats in the US.
He also posted a link to a pre-made letter (HERE) to Congress about outlawing big cats as pets.
Ohio is currently considering limitations on exotic pets after the Zanesville incident.
