Back to Hypocritical Exotic and Wild Animal Sanctuaries

Pat Derby's Book The Lady and Her Tiger where she freely admits she killed her animals when she couldn't make enough money training them for movie and commercials.

Even though she wrote in her book "I don't intend to acquire any more animals" (page 284), in just few years later, she started collecting exotic animals again, this time as a 'sanctuary, because that is where the money is. See PAWS multimillion dollar donations 2007 tax return.

Read for more info, including the mention of her unfortunate elephant that died in the barn fire.
