    Why are so many people so shocked about these inter breeds?
    Man constantly tries to play a god in our lives

    Humans are the most despicable creature I've ever known.

    Wow that's not raciest or anything. Such an Ignorant Comment.

    Those are all different breeds, not different species (except the equid references).

    "for the same reason humans do not breed with gorillas or chimps."

    It is impossible for humans to interbreed with simians. A more accurate analogy is white and black people interbreeding and producing mullatos, but it's racist to criticise that.

    No excuse for breeding ligers or tigons.

    Respect life as it exists naturally in the wild.Let them remain free and true to their natures…It is the decent thing to do.

    People have been doing it to dogs and cats for hundreds of years… for example, a Shar Pei must have a C-section because the pups are bred to have large heads; so large, she can't give natural birth. I'm all for protecting Tigers and Lions, don't get me wrong. And this does need to stop. I just wanted to point out, that it is no more cruel than what we do to our best furry friends in our homes.

      That is not a solid fact
      We have Shar Pei in our family (in our home)
      FYI: If you saw a Bone Mouth Shar Pei
      bet most people would not know what it is and that it is a more true to form Shar Pei

    wow I almost cried when I saw the video. It's a terrible thing when people forcibly make some special kind of breed only for profit and experimentation. I learned that Ligers AND Tigons are a very serious matter. I never knew how tigress' could die of childbirth. Wow it's more about how ligers look, but it's their life that really counts.
    PS: Anyone know the beautiful piano music in "Ligers: A Cruelty Unveiled"?

    MMM Well I thought these animals were stunningly beautiful and I would of paid top dollar to see them close up. I would of been in the front row watching them but now after seeing this Video that's has all changed Well done to the lady who made it.. She definitely change my outlook on these BIG Cats… SO now I need to know "Why do they keep breeding these Cats cant they be stopped" as this is Animal Cruelty, if what she is saying is correct, all the defects in these Cats should be enough for animal welfare groups to pounce on them all. Next thing we will all be having Designer Babies scary stuff alright.

    It should be noted that big cats (like all cats) are stimulation ovulators. What this means, is that while the female goes into heat whenever their cycle normally dictates, they do not ovulate (release eggs) unless stimulated by certain events in the act of mating, meaning that the animals in question have to both first be amicable to the mating (a female that wants none of it could easily fend of a male, even in the case of tigons). Artificial insemination is not possible with big cats, other wise it would be far easier for zoos to bring their numbers back up. That being said, it is irresponsible for those who know of the possibility of cross-breeding to have tigers and lions (or any multiple species mixes for that matter) in the same pens together and not have them neutered or spayed. If the intention of having multiple animals in one pen is breeding, it should only be with members of the same species, so as build up numbers (they ARE endangered after all).
    There are a few 'facts' in the is articular which I believe may be less well researched than the author thinks, despite good intentions.

    While I am oppose to the commercial breeding of this animal or any animal for the sole purpose of sport/entertainment, I find this article questionable despite the good intentions. The liger is a hybrid that is NOT born sterile which is highly unusual for hybrid species produced in captivity which leads many scientists to believe that there was a possibility at one time long ago when geography and man was not an obstacle for these animals to breed. It isn't uncommon in evolutionary cycles for animals of subspecies to breed for survival. It should also be noted that hybrids…mutts in general tend to be HEALTHIER because of the varied gene pool. Just look at purebred dogs and cats and the genetic health risks that come along with many of the breeds. As for the existing ligers, they should definitely be protected by law. But seeing the near extinction of both tiger and lion species in the future, perhaps we can learn something from ligers after all.

    Marilyn Kaye Muma-Reid, this is a long article, but it has some good info about ligers.

    Judging by this article. This situation is quite serious. Why on earth are people so stupid to breed tigers and lions together even for "commercial" purposes or any purpose is ridiculous. It's a good thing you are encouraging a clamping down on this practice and repudiating it.

      some zoos did it on accident in fact they kept them alive just out of seeing what would happen.

      Lewis, I can understand IF it was an accident, but usually it is done delibrately in most cases. To prevent the accident, the zoo shouldn't be so careless.

    They are indeed amazing animals but in the end they are hybrids. I find the practice of breeding them appalling. See here: http://www.ligerfacts.org/Liger-and-Animal-Cruelty.html.
    What do you think about it?
