Did you know that the USDA only requires that a cage for a wild animal be large enough that the animal be able to stand and turn around in the cage? Is it entertainment or animal torment?
They allow even smaller enclosures for the purpose of travel.
Big Cats can be confined to cages that are too small to even stand up and turn around in for up to 60 days. If the cat is let out into the ring to perform, or into an exercise yard, then the 60 days starts over.
