Arlington Daily News (Newspaper) - July 11, 1977, Arlington, Texas Monday uly to 1977arlington daily news Page 3 Lions and tigers and bears Job my space threaten wild animals existence by Debbie Mcalister tile Tiger moves stealthily through a mottled Green Jungle while his Cousin the cheetah runs across a South american Pampa. Elsewhere alligators slide through the Louisiana mud and condors Wing their Way across the Rockies. These images of sleek Jungle cats or soaring Birds of prey Are hiding in the Back of everyone a mind ready to Spring Forth to fill an afternoon daydream. Unfortunately they will soon exist Only in daydreams. The grizzly Bear cheetah Tiger ered Kangaroo spotted Leopard orangutan Condor Bald Eagle Alligator and hundreds of other species Are near extinction. Dallas and fort Worth residents however can still enjoy their Beauty at the Dallas or fort Worth zoo or lion country safari in grand Prairie. It seems logical to assume that zoologists and gamekeepers would be avidly trying to Breed these rare and endangered species to ensure their survival. That was indeed die Case for Many years. Mama and papa clouded leopards at the Dallas zoo Are the proud parents of More than 35 cubs. This summer both zoos will Hail visits from the Stork bringing baby tigers leopards Lions racoons monkeys a even some baby storks. The Stork has already added to the Herd of rare White rhinos at lion country. But what happens to the baby animals Money for expanding the zoos is limited and allocations for space have already been made for several years to come. In fact neither area zoo has room to House More tigers elephants or any of the other Large mammals. And they can to sell them a not even to another zoo. The Federal government ratified the International treaty for endangered species and added its own strict regulations i shipping killing and Selling endangered species. A a there a no purpose in Breeding these animals other than to replenish the populations. There is no place in the wild left to a put them backs because As Man encroaches on More and More habitats even Small populations of wild animals have an Over population Roblen when their natural habitat is being destroyed by Man a explains it. Worth zoo superintendent Elvie Turner. It costs approximately $1,000 per year to House and care for a single Tiger and a mating pair according to veterinarians could produce As Many As 70 offspring in a to year period. Housing 70 tigers would require an enclosure roughly twice the size of Texas stadium if each animal were a to have the optimum amount of space a according to one reference Book on zoos. But Cost Isnit the Pri Mal reason zoos Are discouraging Breeding among their animals according to Larry Calvin director of the Dallas zoo and aquarium. Hie reason As Calvin sees it is simply that there is no reason to produce More animals than a zoo needs. Fort Worth zoo director Turner agrees adding a a few years ago everyone wanted to Breed endangered species. A Tiger for example is Worth around $5,000, and it seemed like a Good Way to insure the survival of the species and make some Money for the zoo As Well. But these Days you can to even give one away let alone sell the reason is simple both men agree. Its a Case of government regulation making too much red tape. It often takes several years for a permit to be approved just to keep an endangered species and All members or species must be registered. Neither the fort Worth zoo or lion country safari is licensed to receive animals from abroad because they Lack die required isolation facilities. The Dallas zoo is but animals Cornin into the country from a Rica and Asia still must spend a month in isolation in a new Jersey government owned quarantine facility before coming to the Dallas zoo which is one of Only so approved isolation stations in the country. Birth control seems to be the Only answer but what persuasion is possible to induce a pair of 300 Pound tigers to practice the rhythm method none say zoo officials and that a Why people often see a single animal in a Cage gazing longingly at its mate in the Cage next door. A you just have to Seper ate them a Calvin says. A there Are contraceptives on the Market but we Seldom use lion country opts for the sure fire method Many of their Lions have had vasectomies.

Wild pets Are still another facet of the animal population problem. It became fashionable a few years ago to have exotic pets and hundreds of cheetahs Coati Mundis skunks racoons Lions and monkeys Are being kept As House pets Here in Texas.
