Look Up "Tiger:Spy in the Jungle" on Netflix. It's an awesome series following a mother of four cubs over about a 2 year period in India.

A Bengal tiger has a territory range of about 1,000 sq miles in the wild. I thinks it is cruel to cage one.

Get better Mike.

We will not allow Mike to suffer,” Dr. Dave Baker said in a statement. “We will monitor him closely every day and will humanely euthanize him when the time comes. This is about treating Mike with dignity, compassion and respect.”


They sure didn't feel that way about Les.

I never watch the news but my mom does. She just called me. Said that Tusk sent him flowers.  I thought that was a pretty cool thing to do.  Was back in May but apparently hitting the news again tonight. Thought it worth mentioning.

Damn beautiful animal, please don't capture another one.

All animals are beautiful in some way yet we cage some of them. If some weren't caged and cared for not in the wild such as he was and in zoos then people wouldn't learn or know as much about them. Keeping a small percentage caged makes it easier to educate people about them and thus as a species they get more attention and respect. To make the statement you made then no animal should be caged or kept as pets, etc.

I was thinking it must be hard on an animal that usually has a 1,000 sq mile range in the wild.
