August 4, 2015
Hosted by Chris Tinney
Jonathan Kraft, Founder of Keepers of the Wild shares how we can stop big game hunting expeditions like the one the killed Cecil the Lion. Keepers of the Wild is currently home to over 140 exotic and indigenous wild animals that have been rescued, surrendered by an owner, or placed with us by other animal welfare agencies. Animals placed at Keepers of the Wild can depend on a safe and life-long home. Keepers of the Wild has a strict "No Breeding" policy with a special focus on advocacy, education and protection. Jonathan Kraft is an animal behaviorist that gave up using tigers in his Las Vegas production after two tigers were added to the show. It was then he was exposed to other animal trainers and witnessed the neglect and abuse that many animals suffer behind the scenes. It was then he first began rescuing animals.
