Random trivia: Contrary to popular belief, tigers don’t roar. They ‘chuff’, which is kind of like a loud purr. And now you know!

Why are there so many tigers in Texas?

Some wildlife experts claim that there are more tigers in backyards across Texas than there are in the wild worldwide. Others disagree, but say that it’s close.

The problem has gotten so big that there is even a tiger refuge near Tyler, Texas.

According to the  Houston Chronicle most states have laws against keeping predatory pets, but Texas hasn’t joined them yet:

In the last few legislative sessions, some lawmakers have sought to tighten regulations — something Trimble’s group would welcome. State Rep. Ryan Guillen, D-Rio Grande City, authored one bill in 2015 requiring dangerous animals be registered with the state, and another in 2013 banning individuals from owning or selling dangerous animals in counties or municipalities with populations greater than 75,000 people. Neither bill made it out of committee.

Most of us don’t want our children put in harm’s way if a neighborhood tiger escapes from its cage.

Others don’t want the government infringing on our rights to keep exotic pets.
