Do You Have a Pet Tiger? Chances Are Someone You Know In Texas Might
Estately has presented a map that shows which state has more than any other, and in Texas that's Pet Tigers. What? Yes, learn why.
There are almost as many in our backyards as there are in the wild. In fact, if you have 300 square feet of space and an 8 ft. fence you can own a tiger. This may not be the smartest decision, but it's legal.
In fact, a lot of owners discover that it's incredibly expensive to feed them, and that they can be dangerous. That's where wildlife refuges like Tiger Creek, located on Hwy 14 in Tyler, come in to play.
When you tour the facility there, you'll learn that a great number of their large cats have come from pet owners who could no longer care for the cats.
