Another tiger -- or, rather tigers -- prompted concern in Los Angeles earlier this year, when a pair of animal-training sisters attempted to open a compound for white tigers in the backyard of their Malibu residence. Outcry over that situation dealt primarily with residents' personal safety, but Tyga's case seems different those women requested a permit (and were denied); there seems to be no permit involved here.
"Whatever the outcome of the investigation is, what's important to the department is the safety and security of the tiger," Hughan said. "We will work diligently to find a permanent home for this animal." We trust that the home won't be private or residential, as it's neither the best legal or safety option -- as we learned from the experience of rapper Mally Mall, who was criticized earlier this year for keeping a pet wildcat in his Las Vegas home.
