New york Governor Wants to Save Big Cats
On Monday August 11, one day after world lion day, the New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo, signed a bill to protect all big cats. The enactment of this legislation makes New York a leader. In California, a mountain lion was recently exposed to rodent poison at a Los Angeles park. Elsewhere, lion meat was put in restaurant menus. People in New York, are making progress to save big cats. In New York, an organization called IFAW, has sought to put a stop to trophy import and wildlife trafficking. Though things are starting to look good for big cats there is still a great deal of progress to be made. It is time for Congress to follow New Yorks lead and help protect big cats. Hopefully on next years world lion day there will be even more progress to celebrate.
