Rumble / Funny & Cute AnimalsMany people dream of getting to handle an exotic animal in some point of their lives. It seems this girl’s dream came true, when she got to get inside a cage with a young tiger while vacationing. We understand it is a thrilling moment, getting to see and touch an animal such as this one up close and personal, but let’s think things through a bit.

The <a href="" target="_blank">tiger</a> might just be playing with the woman, probably imprinted on her and does what every other member of the feline family would; bite and grab its opponent. Looks like innocent fun, but there are cases where “innocent fun" turned sour and someone got killed, sadly.

The <a href="" target="_blank">young tiger</a> looks like it’s domesticated and this is a common practice in the countries in Southeast Asia. People are willing to pay fat money to risk their lives, just to sit and touch a wild beast. It is a good idea? Definitely not, because no matter how trained the animal is, the instinct is always there, a fact that this video proves.

Tigers are not domestic animals; you can train a tiger to your heart’s content, but deep down, it is a wild beast and that is where it belongs. You can’t pluck the cub from the tundra and hope it becomes Mr. Whiskers.
