There are people who keep wild animals as pets. Some keep lions, tigers,snakes, crocodiles,wolves and so many others as pets in their homes. These wild creatures cannot be completely kept as pets. There are many stories where these animals ended up killing their owners.
The testimony of the “Tiger King” himself, Mike Tyson, a former American professional boxer who at the peak of his reign kept tigers as pets shows why keeping wild animals as pets is a bad idea.
“I was foolish,” said Tyson, on an Instagram Live with Fat Joe.
“There’s no way you can domesticate these cats 100 percent. No way that’s going to happen. They’ll kill you by accident, especially when you’re playing rough with them, you’re punching them back. They get hyped up, hit you back and you’re dead.
I was doing the wrong shit. I shouldn’t have had them in my house, believing they were domesticated. I was wrong.”
These are a few of the people who got killed by their own wild domesticated pets.
