WASHINGTON, June 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Statement from the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW):

"This leopard was yet another victim of a horrible reality in the U.S., where keeping big cats as pets is generally legal," said Tracy Coppola, IFAW Campaigns Officer. "Nothing good comes from keeping a big cat as a pet, and this needs to stop. If it doesn't, more communities, more sanctuaries, and more first responders will continue to bear a dangerous burden. We need a national solution, and this is why IFAW is asking citizens to contact their Congressional Representatives to co-sponsor the Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act (H.R. 1998) today."
