When I was little, I really wanted pet tigers, however, money and means stopped this dream from becoming reality. Now the Indonesian government is allowing people to adopt pet tigers, actually, the very rare Sumatran tiger for $107,000.
So, if you want to start your own colony, zoo, or you want to become the next Siegfried and Roy, you can! There are only 400 Sumatran tigers left in the wild. The government is hoping that by encouraging the rich to adopt pet tigers, protection for these felines will increase. The pet tigers will remain the property of the state and should you become bored with, or bitten by, your tiger, it can be returned to the state.
