Man Takes Tiger For A Walk Around His Neighborhood

Police in Tijuana, Mexico probably get their fair share of crazy 911 calls, but even they must’ve been taken off guard after when someone called to report a man walking a tiger on a leash.

Authorities discovered the unidentified man had recently bought the four-month-old tiger, which had been living in a private home along with children. The animal was in good health, with his claws removed, but it was still confiscated by police and put in a local zoo temporarily because the owner hadn’t followed proper protocol.

  • ONE MORE THING! Believe it or not, having a pet tiger isn’t exactly unusual. In the US there are somewhere around 5-thousand of them, which is even more tigers than are in the wild. And get this: having a pet tiger is considered legal or is unregulated in eight states: North Carolina, Alabama, Delaware, Nevada, Oklahoma, South Carolina, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
