Re: Humane Society Calls For Stricter Laws Against Owning Exotic Pets

Contrary to speculative claims by animal rights organizations that Texans own 2,000 to 4,000 "backyard" tigers, a Feline Conservation Federation (FCF) study of tigers in Texas revealed the population is much closer to 300, and almost none of them are pets.
"I am disappointed at these organizations, but not surprised," says FCF executive director Lynn Culver. "The backyard tiger is a hoax, fabricated by animal rights groups to inflame public hysteria for fund raising purposes."
