Rants and Raves | March 13, 2019

Ruckus just turned 10 years old in October. He is a Bengal Tiger that was used for "photo-opportunities" where people paid money to have their pictures taken with a baby tiger or lion. He came to Keepers of the Wild when he was 8 months old and could no longer be used by his owners. He will live to be 20 years or more and will continue to eat an average 10 pounds of meat each day.

Exotic animals: Great editorial on exotic animals and the circus. It is time to admit that these beautiful creatures need to be protected, not entertain the masses. The times they are a finally changing.

Scammer calls: I, too, received a larger amount of scammer calls last week. The “Grandma” call I got was, “Grandma, I got in a bad car accident. Can you help me out?” NO ONE should still be falling for these.

Arizona now oversees center where incapacitated woman raped: Hacienda HealthCare’s new rule “... not allowing male caregivers to directly care for female patients ...” may run into trouble when a biological male, who identifies as a woman, applies for the job. Who determines the biological sex of the applicant?

Praising our police: Yes, I think the Kingman police are outstanding. Sadly the DPS are a whole other breed. Our local police could teach them a lot.
