Owning Big Cats is a detailed look into the domestic and international laws regarding the ownership of big cats. This includes cheetahs, cougars, jaguars, leopards, lions, tigers, and hybrids. Laura McGuiness, a former DRD summer intern, provided the narrative and groundwork for much of this project, including some incredible images of big cats found in the Library’s Prints and Photographs Division.

We hope you enjoy this perspective on the legal issues surrounding big cat ownership, and look forward to sharing more Story Maps soon!
