This poor baby tiger was dragged around the casino just of please the visitors. This sad, cruel story took place last month in the opening ceremony of a casino in Russia! The the ritzy Tigre de Cristal casino wanted to make a huge impact during its opening, so they thought that buying a baby tiger to drag around the place, would be something special for everyone who decided to visit the place.
This is the tiger used as an attraction inside the casino. The poor tiger cub as drugged so heavily she could barely keep her eyes open. As you can see they “tortured” her at the point that se was : “Barely conscious, her inner eyelids drooped shut, leaving her with a blank red stare.”
When the Siberian Times, and the police found out about the cruelty happening to this poor creature, they decided to investigate the cruel people who were able to do such a brutal thing to an endangered little baby tiger. It is really sad to see how people can mistreat animals, just to get some attention and some extra $$$
When Sergei Aramilev, one of the representatives of Amur Tiger, was asked about this case he told the Siberian Times:
“In terms of moral and ethical aspects, it is not good.”
The casino purchased the young cub, named Crystal after the casino, for around $6,800 from a zoo, according to Russian media. It’s still unclear why the baby tiger is not with her mother, but she lives at a nearby private zoo now. This way she will be available for the casino to parade out on demand for future “themed” parties.
Unfortunately abuses like this are not limited in Russia. If people want to mistreat these poor animals, they can do it freely. It is really sad but this is the wold we live in. I wish this little baby cub was born somewhere else where he could be treated as he deserved, or where he could be as free as he wanted.
Unfortunately, abuse like this isn’t limited to Russia. To find out why cub petting attractions — which are surprisingly common in the U.S. — are so dangerous to tigers and other big cats, click here.
