This is Buddy, a beautiful young Cougar being a victim from human ignorance and arrogance. He was deprived of his freedom to live in the wild once obtained as a pet for a South Florida residence. He was confined to a small cage by his owner wanting to have a wild animal in his property. His personal pleasure hurt this animal forever by human-imprinting and as a consequence void his chance to live in the wild along others of this endangered specie. Buddy was allocated by the court to live at Flamingo Gardens in Davie, Florida. He is now doing well in a large natural-like habitat receiving good care, vet supervision, proper food and lots of love from the Animal Care personnel.
I am proud volunteer bringing awareness through my photography supporting such good cause and silent work. This environmental institution is dedicated to give new life to a large number of animals in distress helping them have a second chance. - wwww.flamingogardens.org
