The following ABC News animal video is about a Florida animal sanctuary which has a special attraction. Dade City, Florida’s Wild Things sanctuary lets little kids swim with baby tigers. The sanctuary says that it is the only place in the world that allows such a thing. The video was added to the ABC website on October 10, 2012.
This sounds dangerous. But if you actually look at the video, you will see that the tigers are cubs that are fairly small. They might cause a scratch or small bite mark. But that would probably be it. That’s not to say that it is recommended. But the point is that it is not something that appears to be endangering the children.
According to this video, a business may allow to customers to interact with tigers until they reach the weight of 40 pounds. Adults weigh around 1000 pounds.
