The Legend of Cricket Hollow: How Animal Lawyers are Putting Roadside Zoos Out of Business

For Tiger Talk's 20th episode, I bring you a conversation with Jessica Blome, the lead attorney on a precedent-setting Endangered Species Act citizen suit that resulted in a court order for the removal of tigers and lions from a horrific roadside zoo in Iowa where animals were being starved and denied veterinary care while being forced to live in feces encrusted cages. The "Cricket Hollow Zoo Case" paved the way for numerous other endangered species act citizen suits that have resulted in the rescue of literally DOZENS of tigers. More ESA citizen suits are pending as we speak -- including against Tim Stark and Jeff Lowe, who you saw featured in Tiger King. So, Jessica and I will answer what an ESA citizen suit is, how it works, and what other legal tools animal lawyers like her are using to put these bad actors out of business for good.  --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
