Tails of the Wild Jarrod Davis
383 DAWES ROAD POLK COUNTY, FROSTPROOF, FL 33843 USDA# 58-C-1137
When Jarrod Davis decided to call it quits and sell his backyard zoo, he advertised on ExoticAnimalsForSale.net and that raised him on our radar for the first time in 2023. There seems to be a rash of backyard breeders trying to get out of the business now that the Big Cat Public Safety Act, which passed in December 2022 has reached the expiry date of June 18, 2023 for people to register their big cats if they did not have a USDA license. Jarrod Davis has one, but if you try to search the USDA data base for his name, his business name, or even his unusual city name of Frostproof, FL, nothing comes up. I did have his USDA license number to search by, however, and that revealed that he does still have a license, valid through 2024. Without lucrative cub petting operations we believe most of these menageries will fold and the abuse of big cats will become a part of the barbaric past.
