Can a Tiger be a pet?

Tigers are not domesticated cats, nor should they be kept as pets, but many people still care for them as such. It’s problematic to consider keeping a tiger or any big cat as a pet, yet thousands are currently kept as pets—more than are left in the wild.

Why you should never turn your back on a tiger?

Cats such as tigers and lions and panthers are ambush predators. They get as close as possible to the prey and then rush them. If possible they attack from behind, go for the neck, either snapping it, clamping on so it suffocates or they go for the jugular so the prey rapidly passes out from lack of blood to the brain.
