Hell 2 Da Naw Naw Award: Texas Has The World’s Second Largest Tiger Population
What would you do if you found out your neighbor had a big cat, not a "Garfield" type of cat, but a TIGER? Chances are pretty high for that here in Texas. According to ABC News, after India, the state of Texas now has the world's second-largest tiger population. Some estimates state there are now more than 2,000 tigers living in Texas. BRUHHHH!
With that many tigers here, many according to ABC News, are BACKYARD pets, are people forgetting that these are supposed to be WILD animals? I understand Texas is a big state and we tend to have bigger yards than most Americans but to have wild cats roaming around suburban neighborhoods isn't a good look. There are stories of kids being mauled and killed as well as owners and police having to chase tigers through neighborhoods. Yet Texas has NO regulations in regards to wild animals like tigers, but it is actually ILLEGAL to take more than 3 sips of beer at a time while standing, according to dumblaws.com
People must also forget that (to paraphrase the great Chris Rock) that tigers have a tendency to go "tiger" from time to time and not remember that they are your "baby". The last thing we need is pandemonium in the streets because your tiger has decided to do what he's instinctively born to do. Lawmakers are considering legislation now that would force owners to build proper cages and acquire liability insurance which is a good thing. So, in terms of recent events (election candidates, creepy clowns and now tigers) we've all become a part of the circus.
