Juan Garcia, who lives in Rosenberg, Texas, graduated from high in 2013. He spends enormous amounts of time and energy on websites and blogs devoted to bashing Big Cat Rescue and its Founder and making negative comments wherever he can. In many cases he simply repeats the nonsense published by those exploiters who are threatened by Big Cat Rescue’s advocacy to end private ownership and abuse of big cats. In other cases he makes up his own nonsense.
In September 2015 he claimed to have made a trip to visit Big Cat Rescue and some of the worst exploiters. These included one of the most notorious breeders and exploiters of tiger cubs, Kevin Antle’s T.I.G.E.R.S. in Myrtle Beach, the circus family operators of Big Cat Habitat in Sarasota, and Dade City Wild Things who were recently sued by USDA for mistreatment of tiger cubs. Presumably he thinks someone will listen to and believe his glowing reports of visiting the exploiters and repeating their lies.
It is unclear whether he has some relationship to the exploiters of exotic animals or simply has some mental problem that has resulted in what appears to be an unhealthy obsession. We hope at some point he decides to do something useful and meaningful with his life. In the meantime, his lies online simply show the lack of character of those who support mistreatment of these majestic animals who deserve so much better.
