As the Dallas News explains, TexasâEUR(TM) laws pertaining to wild animal ownership are particularly lax. The law requires all captive wild animals to be registered with the state, but this law is grossly unenforced.

"...there are only 50 animals on the state’s registry, yet it is estimated that there are around 2,000 tigers held in captivity in Texas."
Gross exploitation!!! 🐯

Tigers are NOT pets. They belong in the wild - or reputable sanctuaries.

You're right Freya they're entirely unsuitable as pets.They would destroy all your household furniture, they cannot be litter trained, have voracious appetites may make a meal of you if there is not enough food provided. As for sending them to sanctuaries, why not let them run loose inTexas.they would have a ball of a time.It would be better even than the jungle
