does anyone know where I could adopt a tiger cub?

I know about the formalities I just want to find either a reputable person or organization I could go to and hand cash for the cub. Please don't waste time telling me how I couldn't handle it, I'll decide that. Just looking for info right now. Thank you.

I don't care if you are a wealthy person with all the room to fence in an area to keep a wild animal like a tiger .. Tigers (or any other exotic wild animal) should be left alone IN THE FREEK"N WILD! .. not captured to live a life behind bars or chained to a pole so some moron like you can get his kicks.

GAWWWD .. this entire idea of capturing for no other reason but to entertain people exasperates me! It's abhorrent. Makes me sick to think that such a majestic animal could be captured and suffer the consequences of someone's vanity.

Lol you're funny. following that same line of thought any and all animals should be left in the wild. House cats, dogs, snakes, fish; all are "majestic" in their own way. It doesn't mean they can't it shouldn't be domesticated. You want someone to bitch at for imprisoning animals? Take it up with your local zoo. I would be CARING for one, not locking up five. Just because its an oversized beautiful cat doesn't make it any different from a pittbull with aggressive tendencies. Get a life and quit trying to help where no help is needed. I'm not going to explain myself to you but if anything you have made me more determined than ever to do this. If only to spite the people like yourself.

In reality, zoos are nothing but prisons for animals.

And I like how you assumed I would be chaining it to a pole for shits and giggles...of choose there would be fences but it would technically be safer with me than in the wild too. No risk of poachers, two to three meals a day, attention, shelter, please. You have no idea what you're talking about. The only thing it would be going without is unlimited territory to roam. Your ignorance surprises me.

..and what happens to it when it is no longer a cute little cub ... And a 600 lb ferocious and hungry animal that can eat up to 40lbs of meat in one "feast"? Are you committed to keeping it fed and properly cared for for the next 30 years? how many hectares of land will you be able to offer it to live and roam? I am growing exceedingly curious about how you intend to not only care for it ... Which will include veterinarian services ... But acquire one.

Comparing domestic animals that don't have the same genetically engineered abilities not to mention opportunity to fend for themselves in the wild to wild animals is ridiculous argument.

And FYI .. I am not a big fan of zoos .. They pretty much disgust me too.

Your comparison of a full grown tiger and a pit bull is also ridiculous. You don't have to provide hectares of space for a pit bull, nor 100's of lbs of food to feed it a day, or special veterinarian services .. Just to name a few.

At first I had the impression that you were kidding yourself about how "easy" it would be to care for a tiger ... Now that you claim to want to do this out of "spite" worries me even more so.

Somehow... I get this impression that a 16 yr old like yourself, who's parents won't even let buy a car to tinker with .. Is going to have any amount of resources like what it would take to actually care for such an animal.

I think I'm getting the picture, now. Your just blowing smoke .. And can't handle anyone questioning you abilities.

You have to have a state license to keep wild animals. If you don't have the license no one will sell you a tiger. And, NO you can't do this, because they are wild, and you don't know how to take care of yourself, much less a tiger.

Thank you for making me waste my time reading that. I said I knew the formalities jackass. You were supposed to answer the question based on the assumption that I had all the means to do this at my disposal. And if you don't know the answer to my question then I wasn't asking for your help now was I? Please think before you try to help where no help was needed.

I think Tractortug is correct Tornado, you seem to have the maturity of a snail.

Thank you for that hippy but I didn't see ANYTHING regarding a tiger in your post...remind me why you're posting on my question again?

Uh, let's see here. Maybe because you,re a rude, ignorant, little person. You're response to Tractortug was unwarranted, he's a valued contributing member here and very well respected in this community.

I never knew that chat room communities had any validity in the real world...but I guess everyone has to have a cause to fight for. Let me know when you guys make fox news and I'll look at you like you actually have something to say and not just as an anonymous opinionated person who thinks they know the answer to everything. tell me, exactly what qualifies you to be the authority on this? Thank you for this argument. It has given me immense entertainment to see how well you think you know me and shoot down your arguments. But i'm sure there is another lost soul out there who needs to be told how to live their life. I'll leave it to you to attend to them and forget about me.

As tractortug said you'd have to get a license to keep a large exotic predator in your state. I'm assuming you know this however, as you said you know about 'formalities'. There is one site online I've found, and it's not too hard to look up. buytigers . com

There are no reputable places where you can simply just hand over cash for a cub in the US. You have to be licensed in most states, in other state there are other requirements that need to be met. Any reputable breeder will make sure you have met the requirements
