She's a two year old tiger languishing in Mexico because the US Fish & Wildlife Service (USFW) has classified her as a "mutt."
According to this misguided USFW policy created thirty years ago, “mutts” like Frida are not allowed to be rescued by American Sanctuaries because they define her as “generic” since she is not purebred. But the fact is, there are very few purebred tigers in captivity since zoos, circuses and illegal breeders have been crossbreeding tigers for over a century.
At the Wild Animal Sanctuary we believe all tigers should be saved. And as the nation’s largest and oldest Sanctuary rooted in Colorado, we believe our elected officials in Washington should lead the change the USFW policy so we can rescue Frida.
We want Colorado's federal lawmakers to lead the charge in changing a misguided policy by the US Fish & Wildlife Service that will not let The Wild Animal Sanctuary rescue tigers from other countries.
