"Tiger King on Netflix was watched by 34 million people in the 1st 10 days after it was released, making it one of the most popular series of all times. It was about this little known Area in the world. Life of zookeeper Joe exotic on people who collect animals and have these little roadside zoos that we're going to talk about. Joe Exotic was accused and convicted of exploiting wild animals and also plotting to kill another conservationists who campaigned against him. He sentenced to 22 years in prison. And Ah, well, I I want to talk a little bit about. Why can you buy a tiger? Can you imagine you can buy a tiger cub for as little as $2000? Why was this guy allowed to run this roadside zoo with seem like no regulation by the government. And are there laws And why aren't there laws to protect these beautiful wonderful animals? Joining us is not really the foremost expert in the country. On this topic. Kearney and Nasserist serves as the director and assistant clinical professor of animal welfare at Michigan State College of Law. She runs Klaus Consulting on has a great podcast called Tiger Talk. Welcome to the show. Carney. How are you? I'm fine. Thank you for having me so excited to talk about this topic because it's just fascinating and let me at first ask you. How were you involved in the Joe exotic thing at all in any way, shape or form? I'm the attorney who pitched the wildlife trafficking case the federal prosecutors against him so suddenly, the murder for hire thing didn't happen until after the K five hits with already under investigation for a couple of years, you know, he was charged with multiple counts of illegal trafficking. He's charged with multiple counts of illegally killing Haider violate teenager thinking back and That's already been underway. So, yeah, I mean, I was pretty neck deep in it, actually. So you know, being involved in the animal law world as I assume you are you knew about Joe exotic. You knew about what he was doing there and people in the in that milieu knew what he was doing. Is that right? Sort of robotic has long been, you know, on the top at the top of the list of the most notorious abuser than a goiter of big cats in the country, So you know, he all of the things that made for a great reality show that a lot of people who wanted to watch it during quarantine or the things that we had already known about been accustomed to you for one time, But I told people I live in New Orleans, you know? After you've seen that person you have painted themselves head in gold body caves and thinking on top of the stair on Bourbon Street. It's not there. No wow. Factor left any more. And the same is true for Joan thought it We've been after him for a long, long time. So you know, Chicago here has two world class ooze. We have Brookfield Zoo. I grew up very close. I could almost hear I actually when the wind was blowing right, you could hear some of the noises from the animals. And then we have Lincoln Park Su another beautiful city zoo, and I had never heard of a roadside zoo. I mean, I never understood that someone could just open up. Zoo without having certain regulations. Now tell me are there now regulations that would prohibit a Joe exotic from acquiring big, beautiful animals and putting them in a zoo? Like a menagerie of animals, capped by unqualified people who just collected animals that they want to open their doors in charge. If anybody can get us life in, um like from the U. S Department of Agriculture, which is the threshold entry point in order to get animals to the public and the application of the $30 That is really what hate you open a road pie deal. If you pass a pre lightened infection know that you're probably only going to be some feel about One infection per year in the U. S. D a very understaffed. It's notorious even in his own internal auditing department for failing to enforce applicable regulations, which are very, very low standards of care. Like Do the animals have water? Do they have food? Do they get veterinary care? Then they stand up, turn around and lie down on DNA with Russell, you know, And so in a, for example, like in a state like Illinois The law states that you know you cannot own. There can't be any private ownership of of the danger of exotic animals. Not great. Sounds like a prohibition. It is not really in practice because all it requires to circumvent that prohibition is to get that USDA license tell the federal agency that you have some future plan couldn't get an animal to the public. Pay your $30 half your initial infection and rock and roll and keep those animals so a lot of loopholes in victim lives on nine Good point, Illinois. But in fact, there are four things that don't have any regulation whatsoever. Existing federal laws are fraught with the pole that are really easy to circumvent. And that's why we've seen the proliferation of roadside menagerie that can operate on DH. The proliferation the pirate in particular. Let's go back to that this issue of the laws and changing the laws and all of that, but You're telling me you pay your $30 you go through these preliminary steps, and you can get a baby Tiger. If I wanted to do that, Carney if I just said, OK, I really like these cute little tiger's My my house. Pets from the DuPage animal shelter are just not doing it for me and I and I going to qualify and I get where do I go? And how much do I have to pay to get a tiger coming in? And how hard would it be for me to do that? You may have paid more and your tax deductible donation to the shelter for your rescue dogs. You have to pay to get a tiger. You know, I know that like I paid a few $150 donation to the shelter where I rescued my grumpy old 14 years ago. Um, you can get a tiger for a couple 100 bucks. They're even free, really, and people working on the Internet. Or using the network of roads by do that are going to dump animals month. They've become too big that once they reach that passed that threshold age where they can no longer be used for the extremely lucrative cub handling called pay to play photo op bottle feeding.

The governor was in town in Peoria yesterday and told us that we were rising higher in the positivity right here than most of the state in Peoria. Including Chicago and that we were four days away from being put on a watch list, so we were not exempt from this. In fact, we were one of the four worst counties in the state. And by the way Road America advertises on W G. N they have that large race course in Elkhart, Wisconsin, goes back almost 100 years. Thanks for the heads up on that, and about those of you who don't want to wear a mask. Sixth, Rio said. You think it's uncomfortable wearing a mask. We're a double d brought for most of your life. I mean, please. You can do with that. And you, Khun dude, that Karen, Iowa's executive director for the DuPage County Health Department. We should talk to you more often, Karen because you represent a large part of our audience. It's not all about Chicago and cook County. I appreciate you giving us some of your time today. Thanks so much for me to be here. Well, I ask you just a moment ago. You were telling us how contact tracing work. So after somebody tests positive, the department in 24 hours reaches out to that person. They say, Where were you? When they say Here's where I wass. What happens when you call the next layer of people? They came in contact with Then we we inform those people that they had been in close contact with somebody. We encourage them to be tested on and provide them with the health care guidance that they should be modifying their behavior for a period of time, Because at that point they're considered a close contact, and they need to really reduce their activity in Public for for a period of 14 days, so and you alluded to prior to the break. I think that it's it has become increasingly challenging to to get people to answer the call. And so we have actually branded a campaign to encourage people to answer the call because We know that the only way to bring an end to this until a vaccine is available to make sure that people who have the virus are identified. And that people who have come into contact with the virus and may develop symptoms stay away for a period of time from others so that we can really reduced The the infectivity within our communities. Do you go to 1/3 layer, then not just the person that I was in contact with within the person that person was in contact with we we do not not at this point on DH. I'm not sure capacity allowing that we will ever get that point. Early on. We had estimate that each case had come into contact with probably 100 or so people in the in the 24 to 48 hours ahead of time, and that certainly is providing us with enough enough work to track down. If you called me and I said and told me I tested positive, and then you asked me who had come in contact with so that you could trace it. You're getting 100 other contacts. Way early on in the in the investigation because people were remember in February March, we didn't have any restrictions on our activity and felt you know if you went to the grocery story went to your kid's volleyball game where things like that. Absolutely. Oh, God, That's daunting, isn't it? That's kind of frightening. It has been, and I think it points to the need for the stay at home order because I think that most of us don't even realize how many how many people quite literally. We touch on a day to day basis where people has attempt to give you even the contact information they have now like. Who are you people and okay, I believe you're the county Health department. But I'm not giving you the names and numbers of all of these people. For one thing, I don't want to be shamed. And secondly, I just I'm not going to do it. What do you run into something like that? Right, Right. Unfortunately, we don't very often. Unfortunately, we see the numbers, increasing a little bit of people who are unwilling to participate in the investigation. Way have we have highly trained and expanded capacity to do this kind of case investigation? Within our staff, and now we're bringing additional folks in to assist us with that, But But again, there's there. There may be people who refused to comply and we may have to go. Through a different process. T get that information, but But again, it's it's out of our interest in on ly interest in reducing the spread of communicable disease that we're asking these questions, and so we very much appreciate and we feel like this is a Really important factor in getting our communities back to normal. And people in DuPage County get tested for free. They can They can We have stood up a site at the the county campus, located in Wheaton, Illinois. We run tests from beginning at 7 a.m. On a Tuesday through Saturday. Hegel Right now. We collected over 10,000 samples already on DH with samples collected at our location. We have about a two point Positivity rate. Well, turn around. How long does it take to get the results? We have been very fortunate in working with the lab that has helped keep the keep that turnaround time. Very low. So right now we're at between three and four days turnaround, although well, I'm glad to hear that. But, boy, wouldn't it be nice if it was 30 minutes or 40 minutes? That's kind of a test exist, too, doesn't it? Amen. Yes, Yes, it very much would. It doesn't But I guess what is it a cost issue, then? I mean, what? Why aren't they turned around even quicker than that? It's more a capacity of the lab and availability still of the testing re agents that are needed to provide that so. Yeah, we still have that. That constraint that we're managing through. Well, then, Carrie, do you have an opinion about professional sports? I mean, think about it. You know, it's not tens of thousands. It's a few 100. But you've got a few 100 basketball players, hockey players, baseball players, all returning to sport now getting tested every other day, getting instantaneous test the kind that you don't have access to. How do you feel about the use of those resource is that way? Well, I think that that it is one of those one of those realities right within our within our health care system that individuals in those positions tend to always have resource is that even individuals like you and I don't have access to so I think that in order to open safely, I would like for all of us have capacity versus taking away from a group that currently has the capacity. I would like to see what and and I don't quite understand why we can't all have access to that. That level of service. Just two more quick questions for you. One is what are you telling the school's giant school district's in schools out there, Naperville and Ah Wait. What's the plan going forward out there? So, Yeah, We've been working with our school superintendents over the summer, and we're providing them again with recommendations and guidance, asking them to become very familiar with with the state Board of Education guidance. Providing supplemental information from a public health standpoint, I think that the key message around school is that the better contained we are across our community. The more successful our schools will be not only re opening, but staying open for students and families on and right now. I have, you know, we we reached an all time low with our rolling seven day average of case pounds. So back and June 23rd we had a rolling seven day average of 34.4. Um, a mere month later. We're at 92 so we're clearly going in a concerning direction and that is in large part because People are letting down their guard. They're not wearing their math..
