Tigers for sale – 2022 – it needs to be banned

‘Tigers for sale’ is a phrase that I do not want to read when it concerns private sales from unscrupulous traders selling to naive customers. This page is not about inter-zoo sales which are bad enough. Humankind should not be trading tigers online. It should be entirely banned across the globe. Sadly, that is asking too much of humankind to organise. This long page is broken down into 2 parts; the second page contains the comments.

This page was initially written about 13 years ago. I’m going to add some words to it today, January 12, 2022. Actually, it’s quite interesting to do this to see what has changed over those intervening 13 years.

This page is characterised by the fact that there is a huge number of comments below this article. I have not counted them but it must be in the hundreds. This page including comments is over 16,000 words long πŸ‘πŸ˜Š. Put the kettle on 😎. Perhaps the comments are more interesting than what I have written. Often times comments are more enlightening because you find out what people really think about this sort of marketplace. The marketplace in the trade of wild animals is obnoxious. It severely damages conservation and supports the notion that precious wild creatures are simply possessions of humans to do as they will with them. This is not the kind of relationship that humankind should be having with nature.

You will find that the sort of person who wants to trade in tigers and other exotic cats and iconic species live in developing countries where, I regret to say, there is a degree of ignorance about conservation and protecting the planet. That is not to say that educated people in the West are entirely innocent. Far from it. Many rich Westerners indulge in trophy hunting which is worse than selling tigers or lions.

I very quickly bumped into an online advert for the tiger cub (above). It’s on the Exotic Wildcat website. I don’t know whether this is a genuine sale. This cub is for sale as US$1500. The description of this cub is that she is 3.5 months old. On the same website they have other wild exotic animals for sale such as a pet jaguar at US$2500 and an adult tiger at US$2000. I suspect that this website is based in Asia somewhere or perhaps Africa.

On another website selling tigers they provide the address which is 3 Dundas Road, Lower Kololo, Kampala, Uganda. They are selling baby tigers to sell at “affordable prices”. They present pictures of two white tiger cubs and a picture of white lion and tiger cubs. They offer a 10% discount if you buy animals in large quantities!

They deliver wild animals as pets to customers worldwide. They say that baby tigers can be kept at home if they are tamed. Comment: what about when they grow up 😒. The price of these white tigers is US$3000 each. Bengal tiger cubs are at US$2000 each.

They say that their animals are vaccinated “by professional veterinarians”. That implies that sometimes vaccinations in Africa are not carried out by veterinarians! They insist that their tigers are “tamed making them harmless to owners and caretakers”. What about when they grow up?

You will have to pay a US$300 commitment fee when booking a tiger.

What do people think about tigers for sale? Are you upset, appalled or OK about it? Is it a bad thing or acceptable? What is bad about it? How is an individual able to sell Siberian tiger cubs from a residential location? Well, here is one person doing that it seems.

It just all seems very odd to me. This is a white Siberian tiger cub in what seems like the person’s bedroom. He (I presume he is the seller but I could be wrong) is asking $1,500.

Here is another advert for Gorgeous Siberian Tiger Cubs for sale. This is for 4 orange tiger cubs and it is the same person as above selling (or the same email address) although the advert is on a different site. The contact email is: chao.tigercubsatyahoo.com. I have not checked this at 2022.

These tigers for sale have the shots, vet checked and are β€œpurebred” blah, blah. This means someone is breeding them in the USA, probably very common. The gene pool will be shockingly small and the tigers inbreed, almost certainly. This also has to be an unhealthy operation. And they seem to be selling to anyone with facilities or not. No one seems to care.

    • Your comment translates to “Do you ship to Argentina?”

      Are you taking the piss?! You are not seriously enquiring about buying a tiger, are you? Don’t, don’t, don’t.

  1. I think that if you are going to own a tiger you should live in the forest with it and not in a compartment. these creatures are NOT lollipops!
    If ou are going to sell them than sell them for a lower price and NOT in a scam!this is outrageous! this topic should not be even thought of!

    • Heidi, tigers are sold everywhere like lollipops. There is nothing that cannot be traded by humans. Nothing is sacred. The trade in wildlife internationally is worth billions of dollars annually. All the animals are exploited by man. We use up the planet as fast as we can. Thanks for visiting and commenting.

  2. i would like to buy a pair of white tigers for our zoo here at phils.plss pm me need it badly.offer me your prizes.cages and place are ready.we have a vet and a very big area.

  3. The guy posted in “his bedroom” is Jason from TigerHomes sanctuary. They do not sell tigers, he was rearing that tiger cub whose name is Tundra. Check out TigerHomes.org for more information. πŸ™‚

  4. Why not remove the comments advertising exotics? Or at least edit out the contact details. Otherwise this page is aiding the trade and is used for advertising.
