They are beautiful. I agree - NO circuses or private ownership. However for some species zoos offer breeding programs that perpetuate the species, but not sure how happy the animals are.

Thanks--I hope I don't meet them after they've grown up!

White tigers, rare? More like a man-made abomination. Do you know that for every one white tiger shown off in captivity, 12 are put down, still born or die from the massive deformities that occur due to the huge inbreeding necessary to keep the recessive white gene going? They are nothing but a money making scheme. Let those that are alive live out their lives but please, do not breed any more. The world needs real conservation from zoo's.

So sorry for the Tigress without her babies. The reason they take the babies away is for taming purposes. If left with Mom, she will try & keep them as wild as possible & they become unmanagable. I find it disgusting but Humans have to intervene now because we have done too much damage to their numbers in the wild.

Sad for them. Ukraine is a lousy place for animals in general.
