According to WWF there are 5000 captive tigers in American backyards, that’s more tigers than that are in the wild, pretty shocking! And most of these captive tigers are owned privately as pets — not by zoos or accredited institutions. Because there isn’t a way or system to keep track of these tigers leaving both the American public and the tigers at risk. So it’s time to take a stand against keeping tigers as pets for the reasons stated below. Let your voice be heard through the petition to the government, please see link at the bottom of the post.
- These tigers could become victims of wildlife crime. Without strict regulations on the private ownership of tigers, we cannot prevent them, or their bones and skins, from finding a way into the lucrative illegal international black market.
- It’s a matter of public safety. It’s entirely possible that your neighbor has a tiger on his property and has never reported it to local officials or informed you. In some places, it’s easier to buy a tiger as a pet than to adopt a dog from a shelter.
So we need to remind President Obama’s administration that our government’s inaction to close loopholes on captive tigers leaves not only the tigers, but also people, vulnerable. So, please sign the petition, Join 49,810 supporters, 60,000 signatures are needed. Click here to sign.
