Success: Resort Ends Cruel Big Cat Show

Target: David A. Siegel, Chairman and CEO of Westgate Resorts

Goal: Praise resort for ending its cruel big cat show.

For years, Dirk Arthur has been putting on big cat shows at a variety of Las Vegas resorts. Thankfully, the public is becoming more and more aware of what happens to these majestic animals behind the scenes. This has resulted in many resorts dropping Mr. Arthur’s show, including the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino.

Mr. Arthur has been cited by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for a variety of violations, from unsafe enclosures to painful and forceful declawing. His actions seem to indicate that he cares very little for the animals he owns and the communities in which he works. Thanks to the support of countless activists, including those at ForceChange, attention has been brought on the suffering that wild animals face in captivity.

Sign this petition and praise the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino for finally dropping Mr. Arthur’s show.


Dear Mr. Siegel,

The Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino has made the decision to drop Dirk Arthur’s big cat show after learning of the horrors that happen behind the scenes. Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino now joins MGM Grand and Caesars Palace in banning Mr. Arthur’s cruel show.

Not only are crowded resorts and loud casinos a stressful place for wild animals, but Mr. Arthur has been cited by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for numerous citations including forceful declawing and denying his cats adequate exercise. His actions show that he cares little for the animals he owns.

Thank you for dropping Mr. Arthur’s show and recognizing that these majestic animals deserve so much more than to be exploited for profit. Hopefully more resorts will follow in your footsteps.
