The public expects significantly high standards in areas where wild animals are kept in captivity. In the United States, numerous zoos keep animals in captivity. They have often been subjected to public scrutiny over the welfare of their animals and standards of care. Public scrutiny in these facilities has once again increased following the release of a Netflix documentary dubbed Tiger King. The limited series shed light on the inhumane and inadequate treatment of animals in the zoos as they are exploited primarily for financial gains by the owners. The purpose of this write-up is to inform on the current state of affairs of the big cats held in these facilities and reasons why the Big Cat Public Safety Act is needed in modern America.
In response to the growing public interest, researchers of zoo-based welfare have also expanded available scientific knowledge and understanding of animal welfare.
