(TIGERS/WILDLIFE CONSERVATION) Tourists all over the world pay to pet baby tigers, but it’s actually a lot worse than you’d think.
In reality, baby tigers are bred and taken from their mothers, putting them at risk of dying at an early age. When they grow too big to be held, they’re sold to zoos, circuses, and other tourist attractions where they’re often, drugged, chained, and abused. In some cases, they’re also killed for their body parts.
With less than 4,000 tigers in the wild, these endangered animals need our help more than ever. To help save tigers, we encourage you to support Project CAT and Big Cat Rescue. — Global Animal
