Ne­glect of big cats needs to be re­ported to au­thor­i­ties

7 Days in Dubai - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Re­gard­ing Mon­day’s front page story (‘Claws out for big cat own­ers’), while I ap­pre­ci­ate the vets com­ing for­ward about this is­sue and bring­ing it into the spot­light, I was sur­prised by the com­ment that they are “not the po­lice”, I as­sume re­fer­ring to the treat­ing of an­i­mals that may not have been pur­chased legally. Given that the an­i­mals are be­ing ne­glected, is it not their duty to re­port such ne­glect to the au­thor­i­ties so ac­tion can be taken? Oth­er­wise are they not just send­ing the an­i­mal back to suf­fer more pain and abuse. Dale Dubai Tiger Feet Dubai
