jtown: When I was a kid, my dad took me to a zoo where I could pet a tiger. "No, thanks. I'm good." I'll bet I would have done it if Calvin and Hobbes had been a thing back that far. I just checked and that zoo no longer has tiger petting so I'll probably never know the joy of tiger tummy rubs.
doglover: When a large carnivore built to snap its meat cleaving teeth together at lightning speed on necks takes a bite at a human, people die even if the cat's just trying for a love bite.

I've thought on occasion what would happen if I wasn't the big animal in the house.Big cats are beautiful but I don't have any desire to get within reach of them, even the "tame" ones.
one time at the Idaho State Fair they had Grizzly Adams
rogue_L_chick: There is a "drive through safari" near me that has been in operation for years...they had a pretty good menagerie going, with rhinos, giraffes, tigers, lions, bears, crocs, kangaroos, etc. We used to drive down there when I was in high school to take an hour drive, smoke some, then get out and play with the kangaroos. They let people play with the babies (bear, lion, tiger cubs), but I could never bring myself to handle the (to me, anyway) too-small-to-be-handled critters.My favorite part was always the monkeys...they had a ton of spider monkeys that ran wild around the farm, but there was one stop near the pond where you pulled the car over and could feed them snacks from the car. I always brought peanut-butter crackers because I thought it was hilarious to watch them pull them apart and scrape the PB off, then toss the crackers back at me./place is still in business, even after making national news a few years ago when a woman had her finger bitten off by a monkey//idiot, that's why you bring the PB crackers
HindiDiscoMonster: So, in other words, they have been in direct contact with humans since they were cubs.
doglover: HindiDiscoMonster: So, in other words, they have been in direct contact with humans since they were cubs.Yeah, it takes more than one generation to domesticate and animal. Hell, dogs have been domesticated for 1000s of years and they'll still fark your ass up.
bikerbob59: No one has mentioned the cleavage on that woman? Seriously??
doglover: You could probably pay a consideration to an unscrupulous carnie and get to manhandle their tiger.
Swiss Colony: FTFA "the Lujan Zoo is one of the only places in the world where you can pet wild animals "Erm, those look to me like the definition of captive animals. Kind of the opposite of wild then.FFS.
