    Owning a Tiger



    Hey MPGH,

    Currently, I've been quite interested in owning a tiger. I know how much money it will cost, where to get one, how to raise it, what I need to have, and basically everything. I'm looking at picking up a cub for around $2,500. Is it worth it to grab the cub? I would have a trainer and would have a cage since it's illegal to own a tiger without a cage that can hold them when they are adults.

    This is just something on my mind. It's around $67,000 for the first year for the price of buying the tiger / cage / food /etc. and around $33,000/yr after that. Also, I will be moving to Texas or Nevada where I can legally own a tiger.

    If you can contribute an INTELLIGENT opinion, it'd be appreciated.

    Really haven't thought of a name, if I get one I'll be sure to update MPGH with it.

    haha be careful they eat people alive when they grow up make sure you can actually take care of it and dont plan on releasing it in the woods somewhere to wreak havoc i think you can as long as its not endangered but you may need some sort of exotic animals permit or something

    You sure you want to do this? It looks like it'll be eating up a lot of dough.

    I mean if you've thought this through, then go for it dude! Make sure to treat it right and be an awesome pet owner <3

    Well, I have the money to do so. I'll have the money to do it for up to 20 years, which means I can handle it for all it's life.


    (Yes, I will have money to support myself for my whole life in a nice house with taxes etc.)

    That would be an awesome thing to do, as long as you can financially handle it and are able to spend enough time with it.

    Before going with a TIGER you should try something like a fox wolf or mountain lion , Tigers are huge and heavy and if its your first experience with a wild predator you should probably not do it


    would be pretty great to be able to say "Hey, i own a tiger"

    I suggest you get a dog or a cat. The reason being I use to watch this youtube channel where this guy took care of tigers at his house and one passed away not only did the money fly away but you'll be like super depressed. The loss is more than just a dog it huge I would watch out for that too.
