WWF calls for ban on pet tigers

Saturday October 22, 2011, 11:39 am If there are 5000 tigers in the US what happens to them if this ban succeeds? They certainly cannot be released into the wild. More than likely most will be put down. Need to cpnsider the consequences of this. Certainly zoos will not and cannot take them all. I have always said wild animals are not pets whether they are deer or tigers. Whenever you try to make a pet out of a wild animal it usually goes bad for the animal. send green star | flag as inappropriate Why is this inappropriate?
