Should big cats be held in captivity? | The Tylt
After Netflix's "Tiger King" made the rounds of quarantined households around the country, many people were left wondering when and how the big cat industry could have reached such heights in the U.S. According to The Guardian, estimates of tigers held in captivity in the U.S. hover around 5,000, while there are just 3,200-3,500 remaining in the wild globally. Some people see these numbers and immediately feel there is an issue. Others view the situation more simply, arguing that holding tigers in captivity is better than risking the survival of the species. Do you think big cats should be held in captivity?
