TIGERS IN CAPTIVITY IN THE US

 

The United States has one of the largest populations of captive tigers in the world − estimated at perhaps 5,000 tigers. They are not just found in zoos and rescue centers; tigers in the U.S. are in private hands and even end up living in backyards. In many jurisdictions, people can legally keep a tiger on their property without reporting it to local officials or neighbors. In some states, it is easier to buy a tiger than to adopt a dog from a local animal shelter.

Rarely can officials determine how many tigers there are in captivity within state borders − or where they are, who owns them, or what happens to their body parts (highly prized on the black market) when they die. Without better regulation, captive tigers become easy targets for black market sales. When those tigers become tiger products it stimulates demand. And the more demand there is, the more wild tigers are poached.

Tiger is a beautiful animal. I personally choose this cause is because I strongly believe all animals have the right to live as human. It is important because they are part of our cycle of life. If we do not care about the animal then all the animals will be extinct soon. I care about the animals is because they are the beauty of our ecosystem. So I started with Bengal tiger, Bengal tiger is the national animal of Bangladesh and India. Bengali Tiger lives mostly in Bangladesh and India. Bengal Tiger got its name from the region of Bangladesh and Bay of Bengal. Bengal Tiger symbolizes the strength and powerful in those countries. It is also the largest members of the cat family. It has major part of in Hindu culture is because goddess Durga killed a tiger, which was back then highest act of bravery for women particularly. Therefore, in order to have healthy forests we need to save the tiger. As a large predator, the tiger plays a key role in maintaining healthy ecosystems. These ecosystems supply both nature and people with fresh water, food, and health, which means by saving the tiger; we are helping people too. So the other animal’s population won’t able to go out of balance. Tigers can help some of the world’s poorest communities. Where tigers exist, tourists go. And where tourists go, money could be make by communities with few opportunities for income. Tiger conservation projects also help provide opportunity livelihoods for rural communities that are not only more sustainable, but can raise income levels too.
