Brazilian Family Lives With Seven Tigers [VIDEO]
Ever wonder what it's like to have a tiger as a pet? How about 7? I don't know why people are freaking out. Why would anyone have a problem with living next to tigers? Aryas Borges rescued two abused tigers from a circus in 2005, he got very close to his new pets. He started an improvised exotic animal sanctuary at his home in Maringa, Brazil, where he now owns seven tigers, two lions and one pet chihuahua named Little, according to ABC News.
Aryas and his three daughters, Nayara, Uyara and Deusanira -- ages 20, 23 and 24 -- consider their compound a safe and loving environment for the tigers. Uyara has a 2-year-old daughter, who can be seen in photos riding on the tigers. There is no doubt that the Borges family's unorthodox practice of keeping exotic pets is controversial, but at least no one has been hurt... yet. Don't forget to clean that tiger poop up off the floor too!
