      Zoo life is certainly worse than life in the wild but it is life. Exactly how long do you think a declawed, defanged, big cat who was raised in captivity would survive? The options here are zoo or euthanasia.

        Dear Sheryl,

        You’re forgetting some other options! See, as I lie on straw-covered concrete and count the various methods of euthanasia just as you humans count sheep, many of my big-cat brethren who are the guests of these “narco traffickers” are the envy of the puma diaspora.

        For instance, while I am in my enclosure being fed tranquilizer-laced soy pellets, these “yayo lions” are busy deciding whether to continue taking in the view from their palatial narco-villa, or if they should amble on down to the holding cells and dine on some police informant, rival businessman, or blogger.

        Also, Sheryl, I should mention that I am neither declawed nor defanged? I mean, who would pay to see a defanged puma? It’s all about the fangs, Sheryl.

        So, until the synthetic animal rug market really takes off (option 3), do me a favor and imagine staying in your living room for 6 straight years, shitting on your rug as pumas wandered your hallway thinking about what a fascinating species you are. That’s where I live, Sheryl, fangs, claws and all. What were the first two options again?

    Just add this to the list of reasons why drug prohibition isn’t working.

    aaaand.. those are the lucky ones, many others are left on abandoned narco-villas/manors to die of starvation, seen it a few times already and there isnt much people can do when the army is guarding the building in question.
