This is the big news story put out yesterday by the 'Daily Mail'.....see HERE
Actually I wonder if they are. Perhaps that other irresponsible breeder of hybrid big cats, Joe Exotic, who just bred the world' first Liliger has one hidden away in his backyard.
These two guys 'Doc' Antle and Joe Exotic are doing more harm to conservation and promoting more lies than is good for the safety of our planet. They need to be stopped. There is nothing clever in what they are doing. It is wrong no matter which way you look at it. What makes it worse is that people like Antle have the ear of the US Congress and can actually sway things, the way the laws are made. Something needs to be done....urgently. These conservation criminals must be called to task. They are as bad as poachers in my eyes.
Breeding White Lions and White Tigers is not just wrong but it demonstrates ignorance and lack of caring. I really cannot see why reputable zoos do it. Breeding hybrids and freaks or even renting them is wrong. I note a two headed calf was born in Morocco this week....to be sure there are zoos out there which would purchase this.....and really if you think about it it is really no different to a White Liger.
White Tiger Breeding is Not Conservation
White Lion Breeding Is Not Conservation
Just What Is The Point Mr Antle?
