    Okay, I was surfing around the web, looking for dog breeders overseas, as im looking to import another pup.
    Eventually I ended up on some huge site of ads with animals for sale.

    After I checked the 100 something dog sites, I happened to see an 'Exotic Animals' link, so i went there, being a reptile freak...
    What do I find?? Lovely 4 year old male Bengal Tiger for sale... Mountain Lioness for sale, African Lion for sale, Albino wallaby for sale, Zebra stallion for sale...

    The list goes on, and i was shocked off my butt to say the least...

    Is this stuff common in the U.S? I mean, there was Polar bears and stuff there for cryin out loud!!

    If this is legal there, I'm going to move there! I've always wanted an Ozelot and an Owl, but they're illegal here... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    Yes, they are common and ARE STUPID! Most people buy them to find a few years later down the road that they are wild and are unable to keep them anymore. After that they abandon them, and most of them live sad lives unhealthy and lonely...

    With permits and proper fencing it is. It is a long process that you must go through. You must obtain the proper permit and then the building permit if necessary to house the animal, then fence it in with the proper kinds of fencing (fence around the imediate area then a second security fence that may or may not be required to be electric with barbed wire). Then an inspecter will have to come out to inspect the safety and security of the facility. If all this is passed then you may be granted a permit for the animal to tlive there. You are also required to carry a special kind of insurance on the animal and any damage caused by it.
    There are a few places here and there outside of zoos but it is generally alot of work to do and No I wouldn't say common.

    Yeah stupid in that sense, as there are no demands whatsoever on the buyer; only one ad I saw said anything about permits of any kind...
    Some are born in captivity though, and hand-fed since birth... I guess that's a LITTLE better, if they have to be taken away from habitat...

    The Ozelot I know has at least one small scale 'commercial' breeder somewhere...

    i read somewhere that there are more tigers in Texas than in the wild in India now.the critters arent common but they arent hard to find with a lil bit of searching either.

    I had considered getting a large cat for awhile but it was a pain in the *** so..........., as it should be since there are people that I wouldn't trust to own pets with a capability of consuming me. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]
