Lucky man! He obviously loves animals and means well...and tho these tigers look happy and well cared for...i do wonder if a time will come when they'll turn on him or the dogs,even's a real shame that these stunning cats are practically extinct. Loved all the pic's+saw about 10 vid's which were also great! I hope the surgery is a success 4 the baby tiger! Thx Agnes

Wild animals like tigers never really become tame. There's always the chance the tigers will turn on Michael no matter how well he cares for them.
