This young woman and her tiger friend seem to be having fun in this short video, but many people will probably wonder if this is a good idea.
There have been many stories where people had tigers as close friends, and there have also been plenty of horror stories.
The truth is, tigers are not domesticated animals. Domestication is a process that takes many generations of intentional breeding for particular traits, and animals chosen for domestication must be docile in nature.
Therefore, large cats cannot be called domesticated.
So, does this video show a playful animal encounter, or a high-risk activity? Tell us what you think.
