Is This Madness to You?
I came across an article yesterday about some guy in Texas whose pet tiger got out. Fortunately it was just a cub, still temporarily docile, and was quickly recovered before being shuttled off to a wildlife sanctuary.
It was estimated there are upwards of 5,000 tigers private held in the United States.
Perspective. There are estimated to be 3,900 tigers in the wild, world-wide. 3,900 in nature. 5,000 as novelties. This seems like madness to me.
