    Another windup?

    Whilst private collectors can and do own big cats, the legalities and red tape that gone along with it, are enough to put off even the most dedicated and determined of owners.

    They make it sound like you can just part with cash, and walk away with a big cat.

    I'm thinking its a wind up .. no one can afford a swimming pool in Dundee, besides there no point, its always raining .. and certainly not a hope in hell of owning a tiger there, its just aint gonna happen!
    Just my opinion like! I has to be a Wind Up!

    No such species at a spanish tiger.

    lol no one in dundee can afford a pool??! its a city and while it has its bad areas it also has many areas that are very uipper class. then there is surrounding which would still go under dundee like broughty ferry, moniefieth etc etc..bit of a sweeping generalisation to say no one in an entire city can afford something!

    i know a woman just outside glasgow who has a gorilla

    I hope so.

    Wild and endangered creatures should not be kept as pets, but in breeding programmes.

    Didn't mean it to sound like that minizoo, I actually work in dundee/monifieth, and your right there is a lot of weathly people within b/ferry, monifieth, and Canoustie .. but i am afraid, that if the address is dundee, i automatically think of Douglas, Whitfield, Downfield and Fintry.. i canny think anyone there would be keeping tigers.. my apologies if you may think otherwise.

    i think with gumtree you just choose a city to advertise under so i guess IF it is true they could live in any surrounding area maybe.

    dya think its true? wonder if its worth calling the number
