For tigers to be used in global petting operations, here’s what MUST happen:
1. They must be separated from their mother very young and raised by a human. Or even worse, some ops are known to drug the tigers.
2. They must be trained with some sort of painful consequence in order to control them when they’re large and being used for selfies, (using that weapon/stick as a constant reminder.)
3. The majority spend their entire life in a cage and never get to roam free and run.
4. They will never be able to be released back into the wild, thus doing nothing for conservation, except creating a cruel, exploitive cycle for profit.
