Tigers, Lions, Cheetahs and just about any of the other Big Cats you can name have been stolen from their lands and paid for by wealthy United Arab Emirates citizens who are flush with oil money to be kept as 'pets'.
The UAE is heavily criticized for its human rights record, so you could imagine how these big cats are probably being treated, but in all honesty the animals are probably treated a lot better than women or an LGBT person is.
Unfortunately for these big cat owners but lucky for the wildlife, The United Arab Emirates has outlawed the private ownership of exotic wild animals, and will fine or jail anyone caught parading them in public.
The law was originally announced in June 2015, but is now starting to be enforced. Anyone who breaks this law faces up to six months and a fine of up to $136,000.
The legislation also bans dealing "all types of wild and domesticated but dangerous animals."
The UAE declared that Wild animals are too unpredictable and therefore cannot be trusted, nor can they be domesticated and can only be kept in zoos, wildlife parks, circuses, breading and research centers.
The legislation also imposes new restrictions on traditional pets.
Dog owners are required to get permits and keep the animals on leashes in public, the reports said, adding that those who fail to obtain the licences face fines of up to $27,000.
Below is a shining example of an idiotic moron that believe he would make great Tiger owner
