Doris Dallaire, unfortunately that's where they keep a lot of exotic animals to sell to the rich for meat. Disgusting trade and should be stopped.

All beautiful animals. I have no favourites, love them all. As one commenter said, it’s sad to see the Chinese mountain cat in a cage.

Maybe it is because i am a cat lover, but i heard of everyone of these cats save one. And i once came face to face as a child with a Canada lynx. I will never forget that day. He was as scared as i was. We look at each other a few others , then he turn away and ran back into the forest. Such a beautiful animal.
