Thank you to Madeline Anderson from WSAU Channel 7 news for reporting on the baby tiger “photo op” exhibit at a Marshfield Mall in Wisconsin.
It is easy to see why people would want to be able to pet these cubs, but knowing that they will not be raised by their natural mothers and will spend the rest of their lives in captivity in the U.S., should be reason enough to say no to this type of entertainment.
Breeding and exploiting exotic animals in an unnatural environment is wrong, and any manufactured reason for doing so cannot make it right. It’s a sad situation.
