Why the U.S. has so many big cats in captivity

"If you live in Texas, you might find out that your neighbor owns a tiger." These species are protected all over the world. But in the U.S., big cats are a business like any other. Brut nature investigated.

    Absolute disgrace. Tigers are wild animals not pets . There are other ways to stop their extinction

    It's sad to think some of the cute cubs turned adults will end up as a canned hunt on someones property. My opinion is humans should not have nor breed an animal not intended for food. What is wild should stay wild.

    You can google it. I know people who live in Texas and have their property destroyed overnight by feral hogs. They are dangerous and will attack pets and people, they multiply prolifically, and they are hunted in a variety of ways including group outings. You can’t eat them as their meat isn’t tasty and they were introduced so that people could sport hunt. They are an invasive species that we introduced for recreational hunts. The kudzu of the animal world. I maintain that this problem exists bc Texas has not regulated the introduction of animals and exotic pets in a responsible manner. It’s the “I have a big ranch which doesn’t support agriculture, let’s put up a fence and get some boars to hunt and make some money”. Understandable yes, short sighted, yes.

    Liberal privilege = believe you have the right to control other people’s lives. Believe you have the right to never hear other people’s opinions. Believe that when you are offended other people have to care. Believe there are two sets of rules one for you and one for everyone else.

    It's ego and attention seeking on a pedestal of selfishness.

    It's not good to domesticate wild animal just for amusement
