The Tiger Next Door « Retrieverman's Weblog

good articles + info; terrible idea, :thumbdown: tigers as PETS :mad:
stoopid humans... also this asinine idea that WHITE tigers are endangered, what cr*p.

WHITE tigers are extremely inbred to get the blue-eyes + white/black stripes...
needless to say, this is not a highly-successful color in the wild.
ALL of these cats in captivity trace back to ** one ** male, captured as a young adult.
they will NOT be re-introducing -white tigers- to the Indian subcontinent. :rolleyes:

and every cage in an ACCREDITED * ZOO given up to a &%$#@! white tiger is a cage that COULD house
a genuinely-endangered, genetically-valuable tiger, who could help maintain a solidly-diverse captive popn. :nonod:

white tigers are *popular* in captivity - they are NOT a species, a subspecies or a natural strain.
they are merely a color-variant, like the diff between a yellow, liver, or black Labrador. * whoopee... *

if yer neighbor gets a tiger - call Animal Control. :thumbup1: tigers do not belong in backyard pens, IMO.
[Texas has more Captive Tigers in private ownership than all of INDIA has in the wild... scary, eh?]
