The whole big cat thing can be explained by in the 70's or 80's i think the dangerous animals act came in which meant you were not allowed to keep dangerous animals such as big cats. So avoiding getting into trouble by keeping them and that the zoos had so many requests to take them from private collectors, many of them just let them out in the wild. I for one have seen one.
