Protect Tigers: Keep Them Out Of American Backyards

When there are more of these magnificent creatures now in captivity than living free in their rightful place on this earth, that is just another sign of humanity's mismanagement and callous attitude towards ALL other living beings. The fact that over 90% of them are in America and approximately 95% 'privately owned indicated that the 'Land of the free' has some work ahead to live up to that 'self proclaimed' title. Most of the privately kept animals are 'owned' by celebrities, criminals, or 'wanna be' rich people where it's 'the thing' to be able to have control over even the mightiest of beasts and have something few other do - or circuses/private 'animal farms' where they are used/abused for profit. If it truly is so that America is the 'land of the free' then it behooves them to prove that fact and not only make it illegal to posses these or any other exotic/endangered animal . .including circuses, etc. and begin making necessary moves to have them ALL sent back to where they belong and into either release . .or breeding programs for future release into their natural 'god given' homes. There is no justifiable reasons/excuse for them to be in private possession aside from ego, profit . .and status. “He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.” ~ Immanuel Kant Thanks and hugs to all who sign and/or share this on behalf of our fellow 'citizens' of Mother Earth who cannot speak for .. or defend themselves against the vilest, deadliest predator of all :-)
