Unbelievable Number Of Captive Tigers In The U.S.
There are an estimated 5,000 tigers kept in captivity in the U.S. alone - and most aren't in zoos or sanctuaries. These tigers are kept in backyards, houses, and kennels. Many were born to make money: as cubs, they're passed from person to person for expensive photo ops... then they grow up. Others are kept as "pets" or status symbols.
