It's been estimated that 10,000 to 20,000 big cats like tigers, lions and cougars are kept captive in the U.S. by private owners. The exact number is a mystery because few records are kept. What we do know is that these animals should never be kept

And lest people think it can't happen where they live, I knew a girl about 25 years ago in our semi rural but rapidly growing community whose father bought her a big cat, and it was kept in a cyclone fenced, 20 ft. run..less than 1/4 mile from an elementary school.
And a large number of area residents had horses, including her.
He bought it because her mom had died, and he wanted her to feel "special".
Thankfulky she was wiser than her father, and it wasn't there long!

S & N, Thanks my friend. These Tigers and all wildlife deserve to live wild and free, they way they were meant to be. People should leave them alone. They bring nothing but cruelty and torture to our wildlife, when we should be protecting them.

Big wild cats are a symbol of freedom. Why someone should keep them in captivity?

Podpisane, chociaz nie rozumiem, czemu czepiają się, żeby podać stan (jest wymagane) skoro nie mieszkam w USA. Duże koty powinny być dzikie i wolne. W domu można zadowolić się zwykłym kotem, a nawet kilkoma, najlepiej ze schroniska.
