    Particularly not exotic animals. They are wild and do not belong in cages.

    People who exploit animals for entertainment are morons.

    This is not Washington State University who is RENTING the tiger, but University of Washington. WSU is in Pullman, not Seattle. If you read the article, they are renting the tiger to get their players used to the fact that LSU has a live tiger greeting the visiting team.

    No, I don't think a tiger belongs in a cage for the amusement of either team. It's one thing to have a husky--an animal that bonds and lives with people, and another to have a tiger or a bear or a cougar or lion or whatever wild animal.

    Extreme example of entertainment for selfish people at the expense of animals

    I don't know about other schools, but Ralphie is actually treated very well and when she retires, gets to roam the eastern range of Rocky Mountains. If you really beleive all animals should be left in the wild, then all zoos should be shut down, no more sea world, et al

    Exactly.

    There is not enough room in zoos for animals to live well. They are not entertainment for people. I have never been in a zoo that I thought was humane. Some damaged animals may need to live their lives in captivity for their own safety, but most do not need to be.It is not healty for them.

    I don't think a lion would be to happy in an arena with raging people. That's why was always a litlle scared of circuses.

    I know, but it still freaks me out a little bit, trained or not. Animal instincts can be scary.
