a growing number of tigers
The number of tigers Americans raise is higher than the number of wild tigers in the world. The number of wild tigers in the world is known to be 3,900, and the number of tigers raised by U.S. zoos and individuals is estimated to be 7,000. Texas is expected to raise the largest number of tigers, which is said to be difficult to determine their exact size due to the lack of animal-related regulations.
One of the things that often happens in the U.S. is the tiger Poyang. The owner of the tiger raises the tiger as the tiger grows faster and the cost of management and sustainment increases than expected, so he sells it to the zoo.
There should be related legislation to prevent adoption and indiscriminate adoption, but the U.S. has a high resistance to legislation because of its perception of “individual freedom.” In particular, the more peculiar the perception of animals, the more dominant the perception is that the pet option lies with the individual, and state interference is impossible.
However, all didn’t mean that.Living in some say the neighborhood, the state to citizens residing in tightened controls on claims.
According to the U.S., where the animal activists for children ‘the place of experiencing a baby tiger’ are said to be increasing, which increased demand for tigers.Indiscriminately raising a tiger.
In particular, in the United States population, most of the more tigers born in the United States.
With so many tiger-related theme parks, Texas has increased regulations, but they are not being enforced. In the eyes of Texans, there is a weak awareness of the dangers of predators and a strong desire to own rare animals, so that it is easier to get a tiger for sale than to own a blind dog.
In the early 2000s, a tiger bit a child’s arm. Later, there was a law in Texas that required all rare animals to be registered. However, as of 2020, there are 60 registered tigers, but the estimated number of tigers in Texas is between 2,000 and 5,000.
However, this sensational popular tiger adoption bubble is turning off in an instant and hitting the bottom. Due to COVID-19, culture changes, people’s income decreases, the economic feasibility of tigers raised for theme parks so far decreases, personal income problems occur, and tigers are not responsible for enormous maintenance costs.
The number of tigers that individuals are not responsible for is increasing, and zoos and animal shelters in the United States are already saturated. The problem won’t be short-term because it’s expensive and time-consuming to build tiger-related facilities, and even if the economy becomes stable, it seems that Texas and the U.S. need to change their perception of reckless adoption.
