Animal lover lodged in his house seven tigers
Brazilian animal lover, concerned about the gradual disappearance of the tigers, to dwell in his house seven predators. The man sure pets do not pose a risk to his family members.
Eight years ago, a resident of the Brazilian region of Maringa (Maringa) - Borges Ari (Ary Borges) - bought two employees of the circus tigers, to free them from participating in presentations.
The man placed the animals in a makeshift reserve built in its own gardens, and has launched a breeding program. According to the Brazilian, after a few years, he wanted to release all the tigers in freedom and thus resist their extermination.
However, recent animal lovers had to curtail its program of breeding, as a makeshift zoo attracted the attention of the authorities.
Officials said Borges, he does not have permission to keeping and breeding carnivores of the cat family.
After receiving an official letter indicating the close nature reserve, Ari was not upset: he lodged seven tigers in his house, and later became the paperwork to open a new zoo.
Now in his cottage living as family members, as well as predators.
Sam animal lover does not see anything strange or dangerous, and even allows big cats to eat with the household.
"Once the tigers are born, we started to feed them, so that their instincts can be called passive. I consider them part of the family and can not imagine life without these animals, "- says Borges.
His daughter - 20-year-old Nayarit, 23-year-old Uyara and 24-year-old Disanira - fully shared his father's beliefs. Girls are walking striped pets in the garden and feed them by hand.
"I regularly swim with tiger Tom to help him stay in shape - boasts Nayarit. - It comes only with me "in the pool.
The owner of the zoo is so confident in the "passive instincts" of animals that allows little granddaughter to ride on the back of one of the animals.
But not all family members are experiencing the delight of the presence in the house of predators. Uyary husband and father-year-old girl - Rafael - afraid that sooner or later such entertainment will end tragically.
"I believe that the close contact with the carnivores would lead to death. I am very afraid for my daughter, so I try to meet with her grandfather as little as possible ", - he said.
