Comments: White tiger at the aquarium in Houston. This is why I do not like seeing animals in zoos or cages. Wouldn’t you be bored if you were a jungle animal and you were put in a cage like this? They are beautiful, but I would prefer they were free.

    such a beautiful animal – its a shame that we cage them all up just for our enjoyment…lets let them all loose!

    Hi Heather! I agree…let’s set them all free! These appeared to be in good health and the area they were in was very clean. I have certainly seen worse. I guess you could look at it another way in that we have the opportunity to see such beautiful animals. But that is not my belief. I don’t even like my dog having to sit in a cage at the groomer!

    How large was the enclosure, Charles, and was it all tiled? Seems strange to me to put a large animal in that environment.

    i agree its a shame, but without adequate protection unfortunately most free tigers end up as dodgy medicine or floor rugs. which is an even bigger shame.
