This guy is a LUNATIC and a LOSER with money. I know this from personal experience. At one point he was running around pretending to be a cop. Ask the ASPCA why they don't associate with him anymore. If he didn't have money, he'd be in jail!

I agree with the majority of comments here about Larry. He is a man-child who thinks he can everything with money--someone else's money. He does nothing all day except satisfy his every whim. I used to work for him and his family. He exploits those big cats and they are kept in cages behind his house with very little space or attention. Yes, he takes them out for "educational" purposes but actually it's a big ego trip for this man.

The man is a collector of THINGS... cats only bring him publicity, look how big his yacht is, do you want to come to my island, I will let your son fly my jet, come on let me show you what I am worth? Did I make a 300k trust annually for my kids enough for them to live on, come on... let me show you my toys.. shallowness hides behind "STUFF" poor cats, really Larry, is it for the better good for all?

Why don't you set them free on your island and let them live in peace not exploitation?

Larry Wallach did not "save" this tiger. He buys tigers to play with all day long on his front lawn.
How about asking the question if you would like to live next door to a charter bus in front of your house.
Larry Wallach has nothing to do and all day to do it.
He is a menace to have for a neighbor.

Larry is nothing but an ASS. He is a child stuck in an adult body. Having to be his neighbor must be really hard. Somebody should have thrown him a beating a long time ago.

<quoted text> you have no clue what you are talking about. the cages these animals live in are 10ft x 24 ft. the minimum legal size for state regulations...if they make it there. so many have already died this year from their negligence. you obviously don't know barb very well because if you did, you would know what her house looks and smells like. open your eyes you ignorant jerk.
WHY DON'T YOU DEMAND FISH AND WILDLIFE GET INVOLVED IF THE CONDITIONS ARE AS BAD AS YOU SAY? ALSO, JUST BECAUSE SOMETHING SAYS IT IS A SANCTUARY OR 501K ORGANIZATION, DOES NOT MEAN IT IS. NO REPUTABLE SANCTUARY BREEDS EXOTICS! THIS IS REDICULOUS. I HAVE KNOWN LARRY WALLACH FOR 25 YEARS AND HE IS NEITHER STUPID OR CARELESS.HE MAY HAVE STARTED OUT AQUIRING EXOTICS THE WRONG WAY, BUT RECTIFIED THAT MANY YEARS AGO. HIS WORK IN RESCUE AND HUMANE LAW ENFORCEMENT, BOTH PHYSICALLY AND FINANCIALLY ARE OUTSTANDING. FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO THINK YOU KNOW LARRY OR HIS FAMILY...YOU WOULDN'T BE SPOUTING OFF AT THE MOUTH. FYI...THE INSURANCE COMPANIES ARE NOT THE ONLY BUSINESS'. DO YOU THINK THIS MAN GOT WEALTHY BY PUTTING ALL HIS EGGS IN ONE BASKET? YA'LL MAKE ME LAUGH.

How much did he buy you / how much did he pay you / how much did you steal from him - Don't be insulted, he does it to everyone else-especially his own family

He is not wealthy-he steals from his father's company-as coercing an emoloyee to pay for his motor home / he has a crippled veteran in "slave" conditins who he pays off the books to beat his share of taxes & so the vet can fraudently collect disability / he has auros registered out of stste to avaoid NYS tax & insurance / he has a boat that is illegally documented.

Worked for Larry's family's insurance empire for many years. They dealt mainly with auto assigned risk which is a last resort for drivers that no other insurance company wants. Because they had a captive market they were able to rip off their insureds by investigating them intensively so that they could find reasons for constantly raising their rates. Knew all along this would end some day, but Larry is a bum who never earned a dime. Yet he calls himself independently wealthy by living off his family's millions. He never grew up, still lives with animals. He was able to get a gun permit with no problems all because his family are heavy political contrbutors.

How the **ck is this guy getting away with being able to have a licence for exotic animals??? This Idiot uses his exotic animals a chick magnets. I get pissed off when I see this guy on TV at a exotic animal removal talkin about how bad and dangerious these animals are to people and then see him take the animal to his neighborhod . Hopefully this dope get sued for millions when something happens.
