Ontario Breeder Selling Lion and Tiger Cubs as House Pets

A breeder is offering three-month-old lion and tiger cubs for sale as house pets on an Ottawa website. And owning them is perfectly legal in most of Ontario, though not in Ottawa.

A very foolish thing to do. These magnificent animals may be abused and could turn dangerous, as have other animals that have been turned neurotic by idiot owners. They need protection and to be returned to a natural environment, not confused with pussy cats.

There should be a law prohibiting the private ownership of these animals/

There is something you can do if you want to honour an exotic animal at home. Buy a plushie on the Web from a place in the animal's native habitat that is contributing to the survival of the species. You get pictures of your sponsored animal, a plushie stuffed animal doll of the same species, and a lack of illegality, while the animals get a little more to survive on where they belong. Idiots who smuggle or otherwise keep non-native animals at home contribute to things like pythons in Florida, rabbits in Australia, and Asian carp in the Mississippi. If you need a pet, a regular domestic dog or cat is far less of an imposition than a lion, venomous or non-native snake, or escape-prone cane toad or 'walking' catfish.

Canada should have laws regarding
Exotic Animal Possession by now.

This is so wrong, let animals live their lives they were meant to. Greedy, greedy people.

The words Tiger and lion do not go along with the word pet. Why is this legal? The rights of people are still too often considered more important than those of animals who are treated like objects to be owned. I hope this backfires right in her face (without any animals being harmed).

If you read down thru the comments after this "ad", it says it is a scam and the ad isn't even running anymore.

Whether this is legit or not, it opens our eyes to countries who definately need to be reviewing their laws concerning wild animals and their protection.
Perhaps some countries need to be educated in what the difference is between domestic and wild animals...?

It is a pity that the people cannot legislate against stupidity. Would anyone buying a cub be aware of the amount of food, alone, that keeping such a cute animal costs and will cost and vet's bills. And what would actually comprise of a proper place to keep it in and how much that will cost to build and maintain. Then there must be insurance in case it escapes and mauls someone....................

What a sad and cruel world we live in that Animals can not live in Peace because of Human Greed and Selfishness, because we all understand that its always about the MONEY!!!!

I just cannot understand a country permitting one state or county to allow somebody to breed, sell and keep dangerous animals such as tigers and lions and in another part of the country it is disallowed! Stricter controls please Canada for the sake of the poor animals and human population who are risk when these animals grow into adults.

WHY?!! This MUST be against the law! Why is he allowed to do this? WHAT SICK people are buying these poor animals? I DON'T get it?

Get laws in place to stop this. What a greedy heartless person. Hope he lives a very short misable life while on earth and have to relive all the pain and suffering he is causing these creatures. He should be made to have to take back any animal he sells, when the owners realize they don't know what to do with them.
