Whats Wrong With Swimming With Tiger Cubs?

Just about everything   First of all, despite the lies that the breeder told you, those cubs were not "orphaned" or "rejected."  That is just the terminology that exploiters use to make you feel good about them purposely breeding litter after litter of lions and tigers, ripping them from their mothers and pimping them out so you can have your picture made with a cub.

Shaniqua

SHANIQUA Female Jungle Cat DOB 5/1/94 Rescued 9/19/94 Died 10/3/13  Read her tributes here. Shaniqua came from an exotic animal auction where all sorts of wild animals are sold to the highest bidder with no thought as to their well being.
