There are approximately 10,000 to 20,000 exotic cats that are privately owned in the U.S., this is an appallingly high number, in fact currently, there are more tigers in captivity than in the wild. It is not possible for anyone to provide the kind

Its appalling that big cats should be allowed to be privately owned They should change the law as there are so few in the wild now At least put them in large sanctuaries there

Thank you for posting this, Cher!

Since some may have read findings that other animals are also conscious, deliberate beings, and are perfectly adapted to their wild, natural lives, any form of captivity by humans, indeed, any form of organised interference with their lives, is abuse.

Their fulfillments and their evolutionary place in healthy natural ecosystems is as valid and beautiful as the best life you can imagine for yourself.

Their rights are not less than your own.

"The tiger represents unlimited power, this coincidentally reflects on the people who are trying to domesticate them, many humans want to be more powerful than even a fierce, wild animal." So true. Signed and noted, thanks, Cher!

Wild animals are not pets. Allowing this creates danger to both the humans and the animals...with the animals usually paying the price. Signed and noted. Thanks.

after the cuteness wears off, they languish and suffer..unacceptable
didnt some athlete make the news for bragging he has a baby tiger?..foolish kid..he also owns an alligator.
too much money for immature kids..and animals suffer because money buys everything
