FUCKING TIGERS AND TEXAS
Yesterday I had the privilege of going to a wildlife sanctuary on the outskirts of Colorado. I heard lions roar, saw tigers swim, and watched bears climb trees and fight. It was magical to watch so many animals live freely on 750 acres.
Where do these animals come from? Circus rings, old zoos, and private homes. That's right.
There are more tigers owned by private owners in Texas, than in the wild in India. There's an estimated 30,000 exotic animals as pets here in the US.
The next time you walk to your car from your apartment, you may just run into a fucking tiger. While you're sleeping, a neighbors python may just crawl into your bed to strangle you.
This has got to be illegal right? It's not.
I suppose I'll save myself some money and head to Texas for my next Aftican Safari.
(seriously though, let's not get exotic pets).
