Las Vegas – Clark County Commissioner Tick Segerblom introduced this morning that Jay Owenhouse has withdrawn his land use utility to restrict three tigers to a parking zone close to the Las Vegas Strip for a year-long magic present. The announcement comes only a day earlier than the Clark County Board of County Commissioners was scheduled to vote on his utility and follows stiff opposition from PETA, domestically primarily based CompassionWorks Worldwide (CWI), and lots of native residents in addition to suggestions from the Winchester City Advisory Board and county planning employees that the challenge be denied.

Under, please discover a assertion from PETA Basis Director of Captive Animal Legislation Enforcement Rachel Mathews:

After PETA, CompassionWorks Worldwide, and a groundswell of native residents roared that tigers aren’t magic-show props, this beleaguered exhibitor realized that his utility to take advantage of massive cats was doomed. In the present day’s information that massive cats received’t be confined to steel cages within the Nevada desert helps 2022 start on a excessive notice.

Please additionally see the next assertion from CWI Government Director Carrie LeBlanc:

By overwhelmingly opposing Jay Owenhouse’s merciless and harmful tiger magic present, the individuals of Clark County have proven that wild-animal exhibits aren’t welcome right here, and our group is a safer and kinder place for it.

PETA—whose motto reads, partly, that “animals should not ours to make use of for leisure”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For extra data on PETA’s newsgathering and reporting, please go to PETA.org or comply with the group on Twitter, Fb, or Instagram.
